All good things must come to an end and even the most beloved television shows are no exception. Today, it was announced that the upcoming season of "The Big Bang Theory" would be the series' last. “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," WBTV and Chuck Lorre Productions said in a joint statement.
2018-2019 will be the 12th season for the show revolving around science nerds living in California and their struggles to find and keep love while meeting their favorite celebrities, sci-fi icons and uncovering new and (to them) exciting scientific discoveries. It made household names out of Jim Parsons (and made him a constant Emmy fave), Kunal Nayyar, Melissa Rauch and Simon Helberg. It also helped to keep Kaley Cuoco, Johnny Galecki and Mayim Bialik extremely relevant and profitable.
It was only a matter of time, though, before fans would have to say good-bye as all of the main characters are seemingly settling down. Season 11 ended with Sheldon (Parsons) and Amy (Bialik) finally tying the knot leaving Raj (Nayyar) the only single one in the bunch. Our only hope is that the series goes out with a big bang! Yes, that was cheesy but Sheldon would have appreciated it! Season 12 returns September 24th on CBS!
