The End of an Era - Big Bang Theory Is Set to End

The End of an Era - Big Bang Theory Is Set to Endby 👨‍💻 Adam Yardley

Love it or hate it, The Big Bang Theory has inarguably been one of the most enduring sitcoms of the modern age, having acted as a template for many other comedies with laugh tracks in place of departed standards such as Friends and even Two and a Half Men. While many fans will claim that the show has never been better, others will lean towards earlier seasons – as the comedic celebration of geekdom had initially defied all odds to become an incredible long runner. It’s made household names out of some of its stars – though it appears the Big Bang train will finally be coming to a halt in fall 2019.

The news was announced by Warner Bros TV amid rumors that the upcoming twelfth season would be the last for Sheldon, Penny, Leonard, Howard and Raj et al – and that by the end of its projected run, it would have scored a colossal 279 episodes across the years. That’s an impressive score sheet – and another big hitter for Chuck Lorre, who had previously struck sitcom gold with Two and a Half Men – which remained popular amid a much-publicised feud with star Charlie Sheen. Big Bang has endured twelve seasons of character development and jokes steeped in science, geek culture and more besides – while it may divide viewers, it’s safe to say it found a firm place in the hearts of many regular fans, who will no doubt be sad to see it go when its final run of episodes starts to air in September 2019.

It’s thought that production will cease around May next year, meaning that fans won’t have long to really cram in those eleven prior seasons to make sure they are all caught up. It seemed impossible for a while that the series would ever come to a natural end – it has endured hundreds of other shows debuting and leaving our screens in equal measure – but all good things, as they say, must come to an end. “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,” an official statement reads. Young Sheldon, the prequel, will apparently continue – but get ready to hear ‘bazinga’ for the last time.
