All things must come to an end, and love it or loathe it, hit show The Big Bang Theory is one of those things. After more than 10 seasons of dumb blond jokes (poor Penny), tone-deaf cracks at Raj’s accent, and, more recently, the revival of that terrible trope of men being jealous about their wives’ work success and colleagues of the opposite sex, we now know when the sitcom will probably tie off its storylines and ride off into the Netflix archives.
The show, of course, has only been renewed for one more season following its current eleventh reincarnation, so the end of season 12 is a pretty natural point for Big Bang Theory to wrap up. On Saturday at the Television Critics Association’s winter tour, Johnny Galecki, who plays Leonard, gave a hint that appears to confirm the above.
“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 said. “But I think at this point everyone’s very comfortable with 12 seasons being a good time to go home and see our families.”
The show, according to TV Line is TV’s “top-rated, most watched comedy,” so it might be a little bit of a blow to CBS. Luckily, its cast is pretty much set for life: The lead actors are now reportedly taking home $1 million per episode. Now that’s some Friends money right there.
