The Big Bang Theory to end after 12 seasons

The Big Bang Theory is to end after 12 seasons on the air. 

The cast and creative team behind the hugely successful sitcom announced last night (August 22nd) that the show will be coming to an end in 2019 when its 12th season finishes its run. 



The sitcom starred Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, Simon Helberg, Kunal Nayyar, and Kaley Cuoco and followed the lives and loves of four brilliant but socially awkward scientists as they try to function in society and build relationships. 

The series began in 2007 and, by the time it finishes its run in the spring of 2019, will have been on the air for 279 episodes, making it the longest-running multicamera comedy in TV history, taking the previous record from Cheers

The show has been a consistent success for producers Warner Brothers, attracting more than 18 million viewers every year since its sixth season aired in 2012, but it has been costly to produce, with stars Parsons, Galecki, Cuoco, Helberg and Nayyar making around $1 million per episode in the show's final years.
