As Per Sheldon, Big Bang Theory Season 13 Cancellation Was Written In The Stars
They came, they made the geeks and the nerds– COOL in pop culture. In the process they conquered the TV and it feels like yesterday since we last saw them. The Big Bang Theory aired finale episode of Season 12 last year, sharing the week of most anticipated finale with equally popular yet starkly opposite Game of Thrones (you don’t need an explanation for this). After clocking 12 big seasons, the show ended with a bang, leaving us with tears of delight and a train of questions. The questions that top the list are –
- Chances of Big Bang Theory Season 13?
- Who is to be blamed for ending it?
- The stars are disappointed too.
Will there be season 13 of The Big Bang Theory?
To fans disappointment, NO, it is not happening, not anytime soon. The Big Bang Theory have had their explosive finale with season 12 and it is time to move on, for good. But, you will not. Of course, The Big Theory was inexplicably one of the most-watched shows on US television. After all, not all viewers can be blamed for being too lazy to change the channel. Explosive ratings for the show is proportional to fans’ big bang love. And guess what, you are not alone waiting for The Big Bang Theory season 13. Seems like show makers were not ready to call it a day after season 12. Then, what went wrong?
And who is to be blamed?
To claim that season 13 and season 14 of The Big Bang Theory were not on the cards, ever, would be a mistake. It was happening before someone shut the reboot option forever. Yes, we have a culprit and trust us, you don’t have to go far looking for him. He is none other than the lead man – Jim Parsons, who plays Sheldon.
Jim decided to move on from the show after season 12. Not even big fat 30 Million dollars for season 13 and season 14 could stop him. In true Sheldon style, he just said it with a flat face, leaving us gobsmacked.
You don’t believe us. Well then, read it with your own eyes.
“It was the first time in my life of doing this show that it occurred to me that I might want to not do another contract after [season] 12 was up, I don’t know if it’s because I’m an Aries or just because maybe I’m in touch with myself. Whatever it is, once I had that thought, I was like, ‘Well, that’s your answer.”
Well, that’s your answer, Jim.
Here’s more to break your heart —
“There was no factor; there was no situation that I was like, ‘Well, I’ve had enough of that.’ No. There was nothing like that. It was just…when you know, you know. And you’re susceptible and thrown around by the whims of your own existence and getting to a certain age and your life changes and suddenly you just think different,”
Parsons continued —
“It has been fascinating to think about who I was 12 years ago. And sometimes when I have trouble learning a line or saying a line of Sheldon’s right now, it’s hard to know why specifically. But it’s like, you’re not the same person you were. There is a possibility that this actually became more difficult for you in a way. And I don’t know what that means but it’s like you just change.”
Poor Penny comes to the rescue
We could have died until our saviour Penny aka Kaley Cuoco dropped some hints of rebooting the series at the Golden Globes. She is more than excited to come on board if The Big Bang theory reboots with season 13, even if it happens many years later. That’s our girl.
But let’s not forget the show was all geek-centred comedy and Penny can’t carry the whole show on her shoulders. Remember she is shown as the dumb blonde girl. Once again we can’t forget how regressive the show was in depicting a beautiful woman as dumb. With the lead geek Sheldon leaving the show unapologetically, we have no option but to move on. And let’s take poor Penny along with us.
