In an interview with USA Today, Kaley said, "When we heard the news, I went through a terrible week. I was so upset. I cried every single day." TBBT was initially planned run for another two seasons, but the announcement in August brought the impending finale which was far off in the distant future much closer than one could ever expect.
“The first few days were very emotional. I think it was an adjustment for all of us,” said Steven Molaro, TBBT's longtime executive producer. A few moments after the news was announced a few of the cast members took to social media and posted their reactions.
Steve Holland also added that the cast and crew, just like the fans, felt a major loss, too. “This has been such a big part of their lives, so there were definitely tears,” he said. "But everyone wants to make this last season great. The next day we had a run-through, and everyone came to work to make the best show. I think in some way it’s really energized everyone to put everything out there and make this last season incredible.”
As reported earlier, Kaley will be voicing Harley Quinn in the new DC Universe series.
'The Big Bang Theory' is the longest-running multi-camera series till date and Kaley has played the role of Penny since the show’s beginning in 2007. She stars alongside Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, Mayim Bialik, Melissa Raunch, Kunal Nayyar and Simon Helberg.
