'The Big Bang Theory' Is Going Out With A Bang
The hit comedy TV Show, The Big Bang Theory just announced that the upcoming season will be its last - and they’re going out with a “bang”
Warner Bros. Television and CBS have officially announced that The Big Bang Theory will come to an end after its current season. With 12 seasons under its belt, the show will be the longest running multi-camera sitcom in TV history.
In a recent statement, Warner Bros. Television, CBs, and Chuck Lorre Productions said, “We are forever grateful to our fans for their support of ‘The Big Bang Theory’ during the past twelve seasons. We, along with the cast, writers and crew, are extremely appreciative of the show’s success and aim to deliver a final season, and series finale, that will bring ‘The Big Bang Theory’ to an epic creative close.”
If the show is so successful, why is it ending? Well, rumor has it that Jim Parsons, who plays Sheldon Cooper in the series, had told the creative team behind the sitcom that he would not be signing on for a 13th season. There are mixed feelings over this because Parsons (and the other 3 lead actors) were stated to be making roughly $1 million per episode; not only that, but Parsons has also received 4 individual honors as the lead actor in a comedy category.
Kaley Cuoco, who plays one of the four main characters in the show, posted an emotional farewell to the show on Instagram saying, “Drowning in tears, we promise to bring you the best season yet.”
This ride has been a dream come true and as life changing as it gets. No matter when it was going to end , my heart would have always been broken in two. Drowning in tears, we promise to bring you the best season yet. To the fans, our crew, families, Chuck Lorre, Warner Brothers , CBS, and everyone who has supported us for so many years, thank you. We are goin out with a bang 💫 @bigbangtheory_cbs
