Fans are having a tough time saying goodbye to their favorite sitcom and characters they have grown up watching over a decade.
Does Sheldon Cooper and Amy Farrah Fowler win a Nobel Prize? Does the elevator get fixed? Does Raj Koothrappali find love in Anu? There are a lot of questions that need answers and the finale episode of The Big Bang Theory is finally out. After 12 long years, the hit sitcom is finally bidding farewell to its fans, with a bang. As reported by People. It was aired on Thursday, and we know many might still be waiting for the weekend to catch up -- so we will try to keep this as spoiler free as possible.
The longest-running multi-camera sitcom had series regulars Leonard Hofstadter (Johnny Galecki), Sheldon Cooper (Jim Parsons), Penny (Kaley Cuoco), Howard Wolowitz (Simon Helberg), Amy Farrah Fowler (Mayim Bialik), Bernadette Rostenkowski-Wolowitz (Melissa Rauch), Rajesh “Raj” Koothrappali (Kunal Nayyar), and Stuart Bloom (Kevin Sussman) all featuring in the finale, getting their own versions of their happily ever after.
There were other recurring characters like Beverly Hofstadter (Christine Baranski), Bertram “Bert” Kimbler (Brian Posehn), and V.M. Koothrappali (Brian George) who made their final appearances in the episodes.
And ever since the finale was aired, fans are having a tough time saying goodbye to their favorite sitcom and characters they have grown up watching over a decade. It all happened last August when Chuck Lorre, The Big Bang Theory‘s co-creator, announced that the show would be coming to an end after its 12th season.
“We are forever grateful to our fans for their support of The Big Bang Theory during the past twelve seasons,” he said in a joint statement. “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.”
Even the series stars Kaley Cuoco and Kunal Nayyar have expressed their sadness and how they really can't picture their lives after the series finale.
“I actually can’t, to be honest,” Cuoco, who plays Penny told PeopleTV. “I can’t really picture it. And I don’t think there really will be my life without it — I think it’ll always be there, I think it’ll always be running, I think we’ll always have those fans. It’s always going to be a part of me.”
Meanwhile, Nayyar added that the ending would be “very sad.” "I grew up on this show — I was a kid out of grad school,” he said. “I don’t even know how to comprehend that.”
