It has received 52 Emmy nominations, 10 wins and 7 Golden Globe nominations. The show will conclude on the upcoming season 12, with 279 episodes.
The series stars Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg, Kunal Nayyar, Mayim Bialik, and Melissa Rauch. Over the past year, the cast and creators have spoken about the show potentially wrapping up.
In March, Cuoco said, “I actually can’t, to be honest,” and added “I can’t really picture it. And I don’t think there really will be my life without it — I think it’ll always be there, I think it’ll always be running, I think we’ll always have those fans. It’s always going to be a part of me.”
“We spent thousands of days, literally, in the same room together as a unit, as a family. So to not wake up and not have that to go to [work] is going to be very jarring, I’m sure,” Galecki, who plays Leonard in the series, said in the same month.
Nayyar, who plays Raj, added that he hoped the finale would involve a light-hearted scene with the main characters sitting together “eating Chinese food” and “talking nonsense in the end.”
The comedy’s fans were devastated by the news and took to social media platforms to express their joint disappointment. The final season of “The Big Bang Theory” will premiere on September 24 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
