Chuck Lorre opened up about the reason for no upcoming spinoffs.

The clip shows crew members dismantling the set where Galecki, Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg, and Kunal Nayyar filmed for 12 seasons.

"Breaking down the @bigbangtheory_cbs sets on Warner Bros Stage 25. Coincidental soundtrack apropos," Galecki captioned the video, which had a cover of the Beatles song "Help!" playing in the background.

"This morning was not an easy one. The final table reading for @bigbangtheory_cbs," he wrote. "So very said. So very grateful."
