“Feelings? What am I? A hippy at a love-in?” Well, Sheldon, the ‘Big Bang Theory’ fans will soon be getting very emotional once season 12 comes out, knowing it will be the last. According to Page Six, Warner Bros. Television, CBS and Chuck Lorre Productions have come out with a statement expressing their gratitude for all the support they have received over the years.
The sitcom was renewed for Seasons 11 and 12 last year, a major win for television. Similarly, to free up funds for newer stars Melissa Rauch and Mayim Bialik, the five original cast members, Jim Parsons, Galecki, Kaley Cuoco, Kunal Nayyar and Simon Helberg, were reported to have taken pay cuts.
Previously, there were talks about perhaps continuing the show beyond season 12, as Kelly Kahl, CBS Entertainment head, revealed that they didn’t think it was the final year. Johnny Galecki, who plays Leonard Hofstadter on the series, mentioned that everyone is “comfortable” with ending the show at season 12, as sad as it may be.
When we say the show will “go out with a bang,” we mean it. According to another source, once the series ends in 2019, it will be the longest-running multi-camera comedy in TV history.
Season 11 had a 2.7 average rating in adults 18-49 and 14 million viewers. And look out for the last ‘Big Bang’ season premiering Monday, Sept. 24 on CBS.
It started with a Bang and now things are coming to an end. Read more about this story on Page Six here.
