On August 22nd, 2018, Warner Bros. Television and CBS confirmed that the hit comedy television show, Big Bang Theory, was come to an end. The last episode will air in May 2019.
Big Bang Theory is been on air for 11 years. With more than 50 awards, the show’s 279 episodes have served fan’s quick-witted comedy needs with brilliant dialogue and character development. After becoming increasingly popular in the United States, the show has been syndicated and now airs around the world.
Fans have fallen for the character’s odd personalities and extensive research in less than common fields. The characters are played by Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg, Kunal Nayyar, Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch.
The cast is amongst the most heartbroken when responding to the show’s ending. Kaley Cuoco, perhaps the most famous female lead in the show, shared her difficulty in responding to the news of the show ending and how she’ll think about her life without the show. In an interview with at Paleyfest, she said: “I actually can’t, to be honest…I can’t really picture it. And I don’t think there really will be my life without it — I think it’ll always be there, I think it’ll always be running, I think we’ll always have those fans. It’s always going to be a part of me.”
Nearly every other cast member shared a sadness for the show’s cancellation. Many saying they can’t picture their life without Big Bang Theory and that to think about it ending is “very sad.” Even the show’s producer, Chuck Lorre, shared that “all shows (except The Simpsons) much come to an end.” But of course, this epic show can’t end without an equally epic ending…
So, how does the BBT plan and implementing their farewell? One fan-favorite finale is for a wedding! Two of the main characters, Raj and Anu! For fan’s, a wedding between Raj and Anu would be ideal as the Raj has been on the search for love for the entire series. After introducing Anu in season 12, fans were thrilled at their love story.
Saying goodbye to a show that’s been around for over a decade can be hard, especially when the only reason for its cancellation has to do with the main character wanting out. Will CBS make the BBT’s goodbye less heart-wrenching with a sweet wedding?
People reports the last and final season of the Big Bang Theory will premiere on September 24th, 2018. Make sure you catch the last season!
