Jim ‘Sheldon’ Parsons Says, ‘It’s time’!
‘The Big Bang Theory’ has left its fans eager for a new season although the show creators, Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady, officially concluded this famous sitcom with season 12. The eagerness of the fans has especially peaked since director Mark Cendrowski’s commented in a “Forbes” interview, saying that
“The idea is to let things percolate a little. But that doesn’t mean that it won’t happen and, in a couple of years, maybe a character or a couple of characters would catch up within a couple of years”.
However, Jim Parsons, who plays the central role of Sheldon Cooper, is very vocal about not coming back to the show even if a new series is planned. In an interview, Jim told “Entertainment Weekly” that it is the right time to leave.
He said, “I don’t think there is anything more left to do. Not that we couldn’t keep doing it, but it feels like we have chewed all the meat off this bone”. Also, the rumours are that the network CBS offered him $30 million for Season 13 and 14, and still, he refused to come back. That’s a lot of money, Mr Parsons!
Is Howard one of the choices for the new central character?
Did you know that Howard Wolowitz is one of the only characters who has appeared in every episode of ‘The Big Bang Theory’?
“I’m a horny engineer, Leonard. I never joke about math or sex”, he said in the twentieth episode of the 2nd season ‘The Hofstadter Isotope’. He is a Jewish aerospace engineer and an ex-astronaut.
Although Howard is the only member of the group who doesn’t have a doctoral degree, we have often seen him boasting about designing important devices like ‘Space Toilet’ at International Space Station.
Fancying himself as a smooth ladies’ man, Howard is one of the characters who has become a true fashion icon among the show’s fans with his distinctive 60s style. Rumours are that Howard Wolowitz, played by Simon Helberg, might be running for the central character in case the channel plans to reboot season 13.
‘The Big Bang Theory’ Season 13 Update
Although there hasn’t been any official confirmation about the season renewal yet from the CBS network, fans (including us!) are hopeful that soon there will be one. Actor Kaley Cuoco aka Penny revealed in “Golden Globe 2020” while talking to “Entertainment Tonight” that “Everyone is doing rebooting. We might as well do it, like in a year! I don’t wanna leave!”
Well, here’s your clue everyone. Although many central characters might leave, we think ‘The Big Bang Theory’ Season 13 might definitely be on the cards.
So, while fans eagerly wait for the next season, there’s already a prequel show focusing on our favourite Sheldon Cooper. Yes! We are talking about ‘Young Sheldon’. It focuses on his upbringing in Texas.
