Many fans grieved collectively as Big Bang Theory announced its end last August 2018, which has been running for 12 seasons.
The Emmy Award-winning sitcom's first episode aired in September 24, 2007 and has since followed the daily lives of friends Penny, Leonard, Sheldon, Amy, Howard, Bernadette and Raj, whom fans will have to sadly bid adieu to soon.
“We have a general idea of what we are aiming for with May and the finale,” Chuck Lorre, show creator and executive producer, said to Deadline.
“These days there’s a lot of melancholy in the background at all times. It’s been a 12-year project that has been really just a joy. It’s going to be very, very sad to let it go.” – Rappler.com
