Johnny Galecki Teases Possible End For ‘The Big Bang Theory’

Leave a comment

The Big Bang Theory might be TV’s number one sitcom, but all good things must come to an end — or in this case, a big bang — and it might be sooner than you’d like.

During the 2018 Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour, Johnny Galecki, who plays Leonard Hofstadter on the show, took a break from chatting about his new comedy Living Biblically to talk about the beloved TV show that is Big Bang Theory. Sadly, it wasn’t all good news for fans of the nerd squad, because Galecki admitted that next season could be its last.

“The only manner in which the cast has discussed wrapping [the show] has been that we’re all going to be very sad when that day comes,” Galecki told reporters via E! News. “But I think at this point everyone’s very comfortable with 12 seasons being a good time to go home and see our families.”

Although this isn’t a confirmation one way or another that the comedy is coming to an end, it does have us wondering when the cast, which is also made up of Kaley Cuoco (Penny), Jim Parsons (Sheldon Cooper), Simon Helberg (Howard Wolowitz), Kunal Nayyar (Raj Koothrappali), Melissa Rauch (Bernadette Rostenkowski) and Mayim Bialik (Amy Farrah Fowler) will say goodbye forever.

On a positive note, The Big Bang Theory is currently in its 11th season and has already been renewed for season 12, so fans won’t have to let go of their favorite nerdy characters just yet. Whether or not CBS will move forward with the hit series after its 12th season, however, remains to be seen.

What do you think, TBBT fans, are you ready to say goodbye after next season? Sound off in the comments below on whether or not you think it’s time for the comedy to end.

The Big Bang Theory airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. on CBS.
