The Big Bang Theory: the reasons of the closure
Now, thanks to EW, there are reasons why she has come to this decision, or rather the will of the star of the series, or Jim Parsons, who plays Sheldon Cooper, to leave the hit sitcom.
With a fee already close to $ 1 million per episode, Parsons – along with four co-star original Kaley Cuoco, Johnny Galecki, Kunal Nayyar and Simon Helberg – would have also been able to negotiate with CBS for a total amount over $ 50 million if he agreed to stay on TBBT for a further two years.
But Parsons was now ready to greet the sitcom that made him a household name in the world for other projects. Given that there would not be the show without Dr. Sheldon Cooper, the decision was inevitably the one to enact the very end of the series.
Twelve years in a series are a really long time for an actor, even if the show of which we speak has brought, among the various awards, four wins Emmy and a Golden Globe. But Parsons deserves the right to leave, especially in a time in which his character has probably done and said everything.
“We are eternally grateful to our fans for their support of The Big Bang Theory in the last twelve seasons. We, along with the cast, writers and crew, we are extremely grateful for the success of the show and want to give you a season finale and a series finale that will bring The Big Bang Theory to an epic closing,” said WBTV and Chuck Lorre Productions in a joint statement.
The series will conclude, therefore, after season 12, bringing the total number of episodes at well-279. This will make The Big Bang Theory, the sitcom, multi-camera (shooting mode that now seems to be also abandoned in favour of single-chamber) and the longest in the history of television. In the course of its history, The Big Bang Theory has been nominated for 52 Emmy awards, winning a total of 10.
The show has also spawned a spinoff, Young Sheldon, whose second season will arrive in autumn.
The premiere of season 12 is scheduled for Monday 24 September at 20:00.
