The Big Bang Theory is coming to an end. Officially. The news came today that the CBS show will end after its 12th season.
Kaley Cuoco (who played Penny) spoke emotionally about the news on her Instagram. “This ride has been a dream come true and as life changing as it gets,” she said. “No matter when it was going to end my heart would have been broken in two.” She went on to promise that the team would deliver “the best season yet” and thanked all the fans that had supported them over the years. “We are going out with a bang,” she added.

CBS were negotiating a 13th and 14th season but discussions fell through. Reportedly, Jim Parsons (who plays Sheldon Cooper) does not wish to return to his iconic role.
Love it or hate it, The Big Bang Theory is one of the most popular TV shows of all time, with season 11 averaging 14 million viewers per episode. It certainly had an audience!
The final season premieres in September. Will you be tuning in?
