This one's going out with a bang.
Warner Bros. Television and CBS announced Wednesday that The Big Bang Theory will end after its 12th season, People reports. The show first debuted in 2007 and when it comes to an end in May 2019, it will be the the longest-running multi-camera TV series in history with 279 episodes. The series has received 52 Emmy nominations, winning 10 times.
"We are forever grateful to our fans for their support of The Big Bang Theory during the past 12 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," said Warner Bros. Television, CBS, and Chuck Lorre Productions in a joint statement.
The cast of the Big Bang Theory, made up of Kaley Cuoco, Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, Simon Helberg, Kunal Nayyar, Mayim Bialik, and Melissa Rauch, reflected on what their lives will be like without the show. "We spent thousands of days, literally, in the same room together as a unit, as a family. So to not wake up and not have that to go to is going to be very jarring, I’m sure,” Galecki told Us Weekly in a March interview.
Tears may be shed when the time comes to say goodbye to The Big Bang Theory — but until then, fans can look forward to the final season premiering Sept. 24. Read more about the series finale at People. Amari Pollard
