The Big Bang Theory ended after Season 12 leaving the show’s dedicated audience stunned and heartbroken. What is the real reason behind the show ending and chances of it coming again?
A good piece of machinery won’t work unless it’s oiled, that is exactly how the equation of The Big Bang Theory works too. One of the most celebrated sitcoms of all time, Big Bang Theory announced last year that it’s 12th season will be the last season to air.
- The big theory without the bang.
- No Big Bang without Sheldon?
- No theory for future Big Bang.
Fans were left heartbroken over the news and the heartbreak was quickly followed by doubt and suspicion. Big Bang Theory has after all survived for a decade, hardly ever altering in rating and with a dedicated fan base awaiting many more seasons, what could have been the reason?
The Big Theory Without The Bang
The recent rumours running the rumour mill online have hinted at a very specific reason for the cancellation of The Big Bang Theory.
A crew member of the show hinted that it was Jim Parson’s decision to not come back for Season 13 that made the creators of the Big Bang Theory put a final stop to the show. Show-runner Chuck Lorre who has been with the show since the very starting had previously made it clear that the day one of the star cast quits, is the day Big Bang Theory rolls the curtains.
But nonetheless, the predicament of ending the show when any of the cast quit was difficult. Apparently, the confrontation did not go down well. Not to use to the word bitter, but for Chuck Lorre who hoping to push for another two seasons after 12th Season of the Big Bang Theory was struck dumb.
No Big Bang Without Sheldon?
Sheldon Cooper has been the central character of the Big Bang Theory since Season one’s episode one. There is no doubt in that. Whether it’s his ability to insult everyone around him without blinking an eye, his quirks or an unmovable dedication to be completely devoid of any emotion around him has been an audience favourite.
Not to mention, Sheldon’s character development from an almost human robot to a loving husband was a joy for the audience to watch. So, in Chuck Lorre’s mind there was absolutely no way the Big Bang Theory Could have gone without Jim Parsons playing his iconic character.
And when Jim Parsons informed Chuck Lorre of the same, it was from a point of creative saturation. Jim Parsons had reached a point where he didn’t want to play the role of Sheldon Cooper anymore and research for other experiences. He also further went on to mention that it wasn’t an easy decision but the right one. (The right ones never are)
But does this mean we might never get to see Sheldon Cooper and the rest of the gang again?
No Theory For Future Big Bang?
While The Big Bang Theory might have come to an end owing to Jim Parson leaving, that isn’t reason enough to not expect something in the future. The gang could be back in a few years if the cast is feeling up for it Chuck Lorre has said.
The last season of The Big Bang Theory saw Sheldon winning the Nobel Prize he had been working so diligently towards since we first met him. Penny (Kaley Cuoco) and Leonard (Johnny Galecki) announced that they were expecting their first child and Raj was just as single as ever.
The next season could focus on Penny and Leonard preparing to welcome their first child and Sheldon and Amy enjoying their married life and Raj also might get married.
Well, whatever the makers of Big Bang Theory decide to show these characters doing the audience will be there to see.
