The ‘Big Bang Theory’ Cast Opens Up About The Series Coming To An End

Guess which cast member is most emotional!

After 12 years on the air, “The Big Bang Theory” will be coming to an end this year. The cast — Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg, Melissa Rauch, Kunal Nayyar and Mayim Bialik — recently stopped by “The Ellen Show” to talk about the last few episodes of the show and how they’re feeling.

When asked who was the most emotional of the bunch, they all pointed to Kaley Cuoco. Cuoco admitted that she broke down crying while working on an episode last year.

“Out of nowhere, I just started bawling,” she said. “The crew, all the camera guys and everyone, came out and they were like, ‘We’re so glad you cried, because we’ve been waiting to cry.’ And then they all gave us this huge group hug and we all just cried for, like, 10 minutes.”

Watch a clip of their appearance below:

One cast member who hasn’t become emotional over the show’s ending is Jim Parsons, who plays Sheldon Cooper. It was Parsons who reportedly decided it was time for the series to end. Parson recently explained his reasoning for walking away from the hit CBS sitcom to Entertainment Weekly.

“It’s both as complex and as simple as just feeling innately that it was time,” he told the magazine. “It felt like we have been able to do this for so many years now, it doesn’t feel like there is anything left on the table.”

Parsons explained that the move felt right to him, personally, at this moment in his life, even if he doesn’t know what will come next. “It’s not like there is something specific I am aiming for,” he continued. “I’m firmly in my middle age now. I don’t know how much longer I can wear [the T-shirts] without looking really long in the tooth. In a way, it’s exciting.”

The final episode of “The Big Bang Theory” is scheduled to air in May 2019.
