The possible end of The Big Bang Theory after Season 10 has been a highly debated topic for a long time. But with the show getting a season 11 and even a season 12 renewal, it might seem that’s the end of the rumors. However, new reports show that the twelfth season might be the last season of the popular American TV sitcom and Jim Parsons shares his opinions on the rumors.
The shows lead actors Kaley Cuoco (Penny), Jim Parsons (Sheldon Cooper) and Johnny Galecki (Leonard Hofstadter) signed another three-year contract back in 2014 to continue to play their characters until Season 10. As the lead actors hadn’t renewed their contracts it only gave fuel to the rumors that Season 10 might be the last installment in the show.
Kunal Nayyar, who plays Rajesh Koothrappali on the show, revealed for E! News in 2016 that his contract goes on until Season 10. He then continued by saying that he has no idea about the status of the show at the time, saying, “To be completely honest, I know people are gonna want to know what happens after season 10. I don’t know what’s going to happen.” Understandably this caused lots of concern among loyal fans and further gave wind to the rumors.
But it seemed that there was no need to worry as The Big Bang Theory was picked up for two more seasons. Despite this news, the rumors never really stopped. Now the rumor is that the 12th season will be the shows last and final installment.
One of the show’s leads, Jim Parsons shared his thoughts on whether The Big Bang Theory Season will be the end. During the press conference for Young Sheldon, that was part of the Television Critics Association tour last week, the 44-year-old addressed the issue.
Although Jim Parsons didn’t outright debunk the rumors of the shows ending, he shared that there were no talks about it at all, saying “It’s really getting into a very individual state of how does everybody feel, and whatever. And that includes the writers, who we’ve not had a major discussion with yet. There hasn’t been a cast and producer discussion about the future of our show.”
The funny actor then said that whatever the outcome is, he fully enjoyed all The Big Bang Theory seasons and felt really lucky to be a part of it.
