The Big Bang Theory: Bill Gates to Guest Star in Upcoming Episode

The Microsoft co-founder will pop in to season 11 in March

Microsoft mogul and philanthropist Bill Gates is to appear on The Big Bang Theory, CBS announced Tuesday.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the entrepreneurial billionaire and founder of Microsoft will appear in an episode in March. When Penny's (Kaley Cuoco) work hosts Gates, Sheldon (Jim Parsons) and the rest of the crew will stop at nothing to meet him in person.

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak played himself in a 2010 appearance on the hit comedy. Gates played himself back in 2001 in a guest shot on Frasier in that show's ninth season.

While we don't have the exact date for Gates' episode of TBBT, we do know it'll be sometime in March, so definitely keep an eye out.

Fans of The Big Bang Theory will have even more reason to be excited for the rest of Season 11, which is probably quite welcome at this point.

New episodes of The Big Bang Theory return at 8 PM Thursday, March 1, on CBS.
