Kaley Cuoco Says Everyone Was Crying When It Was Announced ‘Big Bang Theory’ Would Be Ending After Season 12
Do you still watch The Big Bang Theory? It’s okay if you do, but we also understand if you don’t want to admit you still watch it. The show has been on the air for over a decade now, and during that time, it’s been one of the top sitcoms on television.
The cast of the show bring in millions of dollars per episode, which is why they have stuck around for so long. It’s an easy paycheck. I mean, they are set for life now if you think about it because you know the show will be syndicated, which means they’ll be receiving checks for a loooong time to come.
Just recently, it was announced the show would finally be ending after its 12th season. According to Entertainment Weekly, one of the reasons they decided to end things after this upcoming season is because Jim Parsons (Sheldon) turned down an offer to stay on the show for two more years.
Kaley Cuoco was on The Late Late Show with James Corden on Wednesday, and she talked about how difficult it was to end the show…
“It was definitely tough. There was not a dry eye in the room. A lot of hysterical sobs. I think I wrote this on my social, it wouldn’t have mattered when it ended, we all would’ve been completely devastated. So it’s been a long run and we’ve been very grateful. It’s time to, I guess, move on to other things, which is so heartbreaking, you know? But it would’ve been heartbreaking no matter when.”
Obviously, they’re not crying because they are super passionate about their characters. They’re most likely crying because everyone on the cast & crew has become family. They have all been together for 11 years! That’s a long a** time. You get set in a routine. You make friends.
By the way, co-creator of the show Bill Prady claims he has no idea how the show will end…
“We’re approaching the final season the same way we’ve approached the 11 seasons before: with no planning whatsoever. From day one, we have never planned an arc for a season. We don’t plan ahead, we just kind of just tell the next story.”
The final season is set to premiere on September 24, 2018.
