The 12th Season of “The Big Bang Theory” Is It’s Last

As the saying goes, “All good things must come to an end”. So it is for CBS’ long-running sitcom #TheBigBangTheory, whose upcoming 12th season will be it’s last. The reason for the show’s ending is actor Jim Parsons (who plays Dr. Sheldon Cooper), who reportedly was “ready to say goodbye.” CBS could not entreat Dr. Sheldon Cooper to stay for two more years, even though he stood to make more than $50 million if he did. Unfortunately, the show could not realistically go on without him.

The five original cast members (Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar) were reportedly making around $1 million per episode.

In a blog post, Mayim Bialik (who plays Amy Farrah Fowler), wrote,

“Am I happy? Of course not. This has been my job since Melissa Rauch and I joined the cast as regulars in season 4. I love my job. I love my castmates, and I feel such appreciation for our incredible crew, our brave writers, our entire staff, and our amazing fans. So many people are a part of our Big Bang family.

This is hard. I love coming to work and pretending to be Amy. She’s a riot. She’s me, and I am her. And soon she will not be mine to create.”

From comic books, cosplay, and interactions with well-known sci-fi & fantasy actors (as well as the deceased physicist Dr. Stephen Hawking), the show will forever be in the hearts of many sci-fi & fantasy fans. We, ourselves, will continue to enjoy the show as it enters its final season.
