The Big Bang Theory is set to end after 12 seasons
Despite stories to the contrary, the CBS megahit The Big Bang Theory will end after 12 seasons, according to Deadline. The Warner Bros. TV show will air its final episode in May of next year, making it the longest running multi-camera series in TV history. It will end its marathon run with 279 episodes.
The show has had issues with female characters in the past, making them largely ignorant of geek culture, but as the seasons went on, things have changed. Adding female cast members, playing intelligent characters balanced out the show. The Big Bang Theory is produced by Chuck Lorre and stars Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg, Kunal Nayyar, Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch.
“We are forever grateful to our fans for their support ofThe 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,” WBTV, CBS and Chuck Lorre Productions said in a joint statement.
The final season of The Big Bang Theory will debut Monday, September 24 before taking over its regular time slot on Thursday, September 27.
