‘Big Bang Theory’ season 12 will be the last, Jim Parsons is ready to move on

CBS has made it official: their popular sitcom, The Big Bang Theory, will finally comes to an end.

In a joint 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.”

Despite the rumors, the false hopes, massive salaries and great ratings: season 12 will be the end.

Some fans may ask why?

Well, that would mostly be due to Jim Parsons.

According to EW, Parsons, who plays Dr. Sheldon Cooper, the show’s breakout character who even spawned the prequel series Young Sheldon, did not want to return.

Apparently, CBS wanted to go two more years on the show with Parsons and original co-stars Kaley Cuoco, Johnny Galecki, Kunal Nayyar, and Simon Helberg earning nearly $1 million per episode, which would have totaled out to about $50 million for Parsons.

However, there’s really no Big Bang Theory without Sheldon, so it was decided to wrap up the series instead rather than continue on without him.

“…I think at this point everyone’s very comfortable with 12 seasons being a good time to go home and see our families,”Galecki said recently, foreshadowing the show’s close.

The Big Bang Theory earned an incredbile 46 Emmy nominations, including four Outstanding Comedy Series wins from 2011 to 2014. Parsons earned four Emmys, one Golden Globe, and a voice-over role on Young Sheldon (no word yet if he’ll continue on in that capacity for the spinoff),

The final season of The Big Bang Theory will debut Monday, Sept. 24 on CBS before moving to its regular time period on Thursday, Sept. 27.
