The Big Bang Theory’s 11th season begins next week, and although we should be focusing on the exciting new stories that are about to air, we can’t help but think about when the show will end… especially now that Johnny Galecki has hinted that the end is in fact near.
On Wednesday (Sept. 20), Galecki, who plays Leonard Hofstadter on The Big Bang Theory, shared a fun photo from set alongside costar Kaley Cuoco, who plays Penny, and fans are sort of freaking out about the caption.
“Another blast of a live audience taping tonight on @bigbangtheory_cbs Just a small portion of our gorgeous audience in this shot by @a.ayers10,” Galecki wrote on the snap of him and Cuoco chatting with the live studio audience. “Only a couple handful of episodes left ever.”
While we are so happy that the cast takes the time to talk with its studio audience (Cuoco recently shared another photo talking with the audience, so it’s not a one-time thing), what is worrying fans is the last sentence of this caption. How can there only be a couple of episodes left ever… ever?!
Recently there has been a lot of talk about the end of the CBS comedy with Cuoco revealing she wants to “go out on a high note,” and Kunal Nayyar (who plays Raj) saying it’s going to end, “sooner rather than later,” but Galecki’s semi-cryptic post is making fans feel like the end is just around the corner.
The good news is that TBBT has been picked up for another season — in addition to the one that’s about to air — and there hasn’t been any sort of cancelation announced. The bad news is that the cast and creators are gearing up for a goodbye, and clearly so is Galecki.
Okay Big Bang fans, what do you think Galecki could mean? Is the end of the comedy really happening, or perhaps he’s just talking about the live studio audience portion of the show ending? Sound off below!
