Bazinga! 'The Big Bang Theory' Signing Off in 2019 After 12 Seasons
One of the most successful sitcoms ever is going out with a BANG.
The Big Bang Theory, which launches Season 12 on September 24 — before moving to its regular Thursday time slot on September 27 —will be wrapping its run in May 2019 as the longest-running multi-cam series in television history.
Warner Brothers Television and Chuck Lorre Productions announced the news Wednesday. The series will wrap its twelfth season with a record-breaking 279 episodes.
"We are forever grateful to our fans for their support of The Big Bang Theory during the past twelve 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," says Warner Brothers Television and Chuck Lorre Productions in a joint statement.
The series, which launched in 2007, has received 52 Emmy nominations and 10 wins to date (though never for Outstanding Comedy Series). The series has also garnered seven Golden Globe nominations.
The series stars Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg, Kunal Nayyar, Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch.
