Actress Kaley Cuoco, who has starred in the series since its premiere, confirmed the news on Instagram and revealed she is “drowning in tears.”
Despite rumours that the sit-com’s network, CBS, was considering a 13th season of the top-rating series, executive producer Chuck Lorre has decided it’s all over.
“We are forever grateful to our fans for their support of The Big Bang Theory during the past 12 seasons. We, along with the cast, writers and crew, are extremely appreciative of the show’s success and aim to deliver a final season, and series finale, that will bring The Big Bang Theory to an epic creative close,” WBTV, CBS and Chuck Lorre Productions said in a joint statement.
