It's been a rough week for The Big Bang Theory fans with the news of it coming to an end after more than 12 years. Even actors After months of speculation, Warner Bros. Television and CBS announced on Wednesday that the upcoming season will be the series' last. With 279 episodes, it will be the longest-running multi-camera comedy in TV history, Warner Bros. TV said in a release. But it has only started to hit home now with its cast bidding their goodbyes. Earlier, Kaley Cuoco, said she's been "drowning in tears" over the past few days. And now comes a blow from the Sheldon Cooper himself!
That's right, Jim Parsons recently took to Instagram and shared a long, emotional letter about the end of TBBT and it's heart-breaking to be honest. Along with a group photo taken on set with co-stars Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg, Kunal Nayyar, Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch, the 45-year-old actor captioned it as "❤️Swipe for my caption to this picture which was too long to just write here (not surprising given the circumstances) ❤️." But the post goes on and it begins with,"It is hard (nearly impossible, actually) to really accept that this is a picture of the first of the final 24 episodes we will shoot for The Big Bang Theory. I feel very fortunate that we have another 23 episodes to shoot this season because I am hopeful that with each and every one, my level of REALLY accepting this fact will sink in."
He also expressed his feelings about the upcoming finale, loyal fans of the show and added, "…something else I feel grateful for—and this gratitude needs no time to ’sink in’ or become more ’realized;'[:] this grateful-feeling is always with me but is multiplied in this moment of us announcing our final season—but I feel such intense gratitude for our devoted viewers who are the ACTUAL reason we have been graced with the opportunity to explore these characters for 12 years of our lives." Parsons also thanked the crew, whom he said "are in many ways the real and steady heartbeat that keeps this body of work alive and breathing," and the writers, "who found ways to keep coming up with organic, entertaining ways to keep the life of this show going."
Parsons concluded, "I will miss all of you and all of this more than I can say and more than I can know at this time."
