The real reason the big bang theory is coming to an end

the_big_bang_theory_season_12

Something in the entertainment is inevitable: every three months there will be a new miracle in the universe and film in the cinema, a classic rock radio will travel every day, “don’t stop Believin” and eagle “hotel California”, each fall, seems to be from the beginning, there will be another new high on the big bang theory season.

The sitcom follows a group of nerdy geniuses, waitresses turned pharmaceutical company representatives Penny and their lives in their apartments and at Cal Tech. The show debuted on CBS in 2007 and has grown in popularity. The show is still a huge success, even into its 12th season (2018-19), which would make it the longest-running multi-camera comedy in U.S. television history. Shockingly, this is the final season of the big bang theory. How could CBS do that, or allow that to happen? Here’s why the big bang theory ended.

Jim parsons was a relatively successful character actor before playing the annoying super-genius Sheldon cooper on the big bang theory, known for commercials and a small role in the garden state. In 2017, he earned $27.5 million, Forbes reported. It also makes him a hot actor because he doesn’t have to worry about money and parsons can take on any project that touches his heart and soul. In recent years, he starred in HBO’s adaptation of Larry Kramer’s “The Normal Heart,” which tells a tragic story of The early stages of The AIDS crisis. In The summer of 2018, he starred In a Broadway revival of The classic “The Boys In The Band. Parsons has a lot on his mind, and after 12 years in one role, he’s ready to try out more roles. Amazingly, he even turned down $50 million to return for seasons 13 and 14.

When Jim Parsons said Bazinga, it meant I'm leaving

The big bang theory’s co-creator and executive producer Chuck Lorre has announced the series’ finale, according to Deadline. On August 22, 2018, after seeing an upcoming episode on a desk, Lorre summoned the cast to his office. When everyone was there, Mr. Lorre put star Jim Parsons in the room. In tears, he told his cast that the current 12th season would be his last. Lorre then tells the assembled cast that season 12 will be everyone’s last — he chose to end the show rather than continue without Parsons and Sheldon Cooper. Deadline also reports that parsons told lorre five days before the meeting that many executives had tried to get him to change his mind, but to no avail.

With parsons standing still, lorre decided to end the show rather than try to reinvent it and continue without any stars. In addition, he has other projects to do; He is the creator and author of the kominski method, which won the golden globe award for best TV series – music or comedy – in January 2019. While Jim parsons’ decision to leave the show — for $50 million — ends the official big bang theory of power rather than lasting at least two years, the show’s other leading man, Johnny Depp, hinted in January 2018 that he’s just ready to move on. At the 2018 television critics association winter press conference, galecki (Leonard hofstadter) sparked some early speculation — and even planted the seeds — that the big bang theory’s 12th season might be its last. “The only way actors talk about packaging is when that day comes, we all feel very sad,” galecki told television reporters. “But I think at this point, everyone is comfortable with 12 seasons and it’s a good time to go home and see your family.” And that’s what eventually happened.

Kaley cuoco (played by penny) has been Posting hot pictures of herself on Instagram after the news of her voluntary cancellation. All in all: she didn’t mind, but at the end of each performance she felt both grateful and sad. “The show fulfilled a dream and changed our lives,” Cuoco wrote under a photo of the cast dressed in street clothes that didn’t suit their characters. No matter when it’s over, my heart will always break in two. In tears, we promise you the best season.” Kunal Nayyar also Shared his feelings on Instagram. “No words can express what my heart wants to say,” he wrote next to a photo of the actors on the set. “My love for you all is boundless. Without you, without the fans, there would be no us.”

Mayim bialik (Amy farrah fowler) makes a similar point, but a little more explicit, on her blog grok nation. “Am I happy? Of course not, “Bialik wrote. “I love my job. I love my actors and I am so grateful to our wonderful staff, brave writers, staff and fans. After parsons’ decision ultimately led to the show’s planned bankruptcy, and producer chuck Lorre’s decision not to have more than a big bang Sheldon-free big bang, and actor Johnny Cuoco, and clan acting increasingly public, none of them seemed particularly angry that they would lose their jobs. Why is that? Well, they all make a lot of money for their work on the show, but maybe it’s also because they know what’s written on the walls of the writers’ room.

The big bang theory has produced more than 200 episodes, which is a huge amount of time and space to explore several characters. Sheldon, Leonard, penny, raj, Howard, bernadette, and Amy don’t have much to do. They all (mostly) went from young, single, immature scientists to middle-aged, married, with children and many important achievements in their careers. Their arc is almost complete, so the big bang theory authors don’t have much to say at this point.

But there was at least one scene the actors wanted to see: the elevator was finally built in the apartment building where so many characters lived. “It was one of my last wishes,” parsons told entertainment weekly. “The elevator was fixed for at least a minute, and then we were stuck inside.” Co-star Kaley Cuoco added that the thought “would be a great ending for me!” When a show is only popular for a short period of time, or has only been on the air for a short period of time, the network has the right to cancel the show for commercial reasons. When a show like “the big bang theory” ends season after season, renewal for a season or more is automatic, but “the x factor” becomes a contract for the actors. In that case, the actors and their agents are in charge — the network needs all of them to start over, and will provide large sums of money to keep the show as complete and smooth as possible. Can stress be a tricky time network executive? For example, a famous actor friend gets $1 million (per episode) for the run shown at the end, just a little more than a $900,000 salary per week? Big bang’s Jim parsons, Johnny Cuoco, and kelly Cuoco will be dropped for the 2018-19 season.

In 2017, the actors signed a two-season deal that runs through the spring of 2019. CBS, warner bros. and the big bang theory cast are in talks, and sources say the show will end after season 12, so there’s no need to sign a new cast. After 2018, it’s time to renegotiate, adding uncertainty to the show’s future. While “the big bang theory” ratings don’t reflect that — in its 11th season, “the big bang theory” is the most-watched show on network TV — the show could become increasingly irrelevant. Now (or soon) may be the time to end the show, which is one of the few punchlines — sweet, bright, “recorded in front of a live audience” left on network TV. Even “Young Sheldon,” the prequel/spinoff of “the big bang theory,” was shot with a “single lens,” or movie-like. ‘The Big Bang Theory’ feels like a throwback to The past.

Some critics say the show’s subject matter, rather than its production style, is more harmful. Anti-sexual harassment campaigns in recent years have put the phenomenon under the microscope. Big bang theory? Is it “certainly only shown today in popular culture that one can escape sexual assault of a woman, which is considered comedy,” said Chris Newbould? State refers to a scene in which a character USES “remotely controlled cars equipped with webcams to photograph [their] neighbors’ skirts,” not to mention the plot using military satellite surveillance? The house of America’s next top model. In other words, the big bang theory has been having problems for a while, and people may be starting to notice.

In a January 2019 interview with entertainment weekly, the big bang theory star revealed more about why he ended the hit sitcom. In short? It’s just a matter of time. “There’s no negative reason to stop doing the big bang theory,” parsons explained. “It feels like we’ve been able to do this for so many years that there’s nothing left to talk about.” It’s a good way to show that the show has run out of ideas. “It feels like we’ve bitten the flesh off this bone.”

Parsons also thinks it’s a good time to be both cosmetic and personal… “Now that I’m middle-aged,” said the actor, who will be 46 when the show AIRS its final episode, he’s at least a little worried about the “really old looking” sports teen comic character’s T-shirt that Sheldon cooper likes to wear.

However, the end of “the big bang theory” doesn’t necessarily mean that Sheldon cooper’s character will disappear from the show’s first season, or even that Jim Parsons will leave his most famous role entirely. CBS will premiere season 2 of little Sheldon in the fall of 2018. The prequel follows the difficult childhood of Sheldon, a gifted teenager who lives in a small town in Texas where people don’t know what to do with him. Parsons is actually part of the cast of young Sheldon’s adventures (played by Ian armitage). Parsons will continue to play that role, at least for the near future.

Luckily for CBS, little Sheldon is a big hit (no. 10 in 2017-18), and it’s sure to satisfy big bang theory fans as they slowly break up with the show. Still, there’s a big hole in CBS’s lineup, because no network is ready to say goodbye to its most-watched series.
