                            'Big Bang Theory' to end in May 2019 after 12 seasons and record-breaking 279 episodes

After a very successful run of 12 seasons on CBS, TV’s longest-running multi-camera series ‘The Big Bang Theory’ will go off air in May 2019. Warner Bros. Television and Chuck Lorre Productions will end the show — which stars Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco, Mayim Bialik, Melissa Rauch, Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar — after a record-breaking 279 episodes.

In a joint statement, Warner Bros. Television, CBS and Chuck Lorre Productions said, “We are forever grateful to our fans for their support of 'The Big Bang Theory' during the past twelve seasons. We, along with the cast, writers and crew, are extremely appreciative of the show’s success and aim to deliver a final season, and series finale, that will bring The Big Bang Theory to an epic creative close.”


The production for the final season 12, which will debut on Monday, September 24, has already begun and the photographic evidence of the same is available on the stars’ Instagram. A photo posted by Galecki revealed that Amy Farrah Fowler’s mom played by Kathy Bates will be making a comeback on the show.  

Last season we saw “Shamy” get married and one of the biggest celebrities was present at the ceremony. We are speaking of course of ‘Star Wars' star and American treasure Mark Hamill. Will Wheaton also reprised his role as a fictional version of himself on the show and also happens to be Sheldon’s frenemy. We are sure to see a lot more amazing celebrity cameos and brilliant storylines this last season, which will be aired every Thursday at 8/7c.


During its long and successful run, 'The Big Bang Theory' executive produced by Chuck Lorre, Bill Prady, Steven Molaro and Steve Holland, has received 52 Emmy nominations and 7 Golden Globe nominations.
