Warner Bros. Television announced today, (Wednesday August 22), the comedy’s 12th season will be its last.
The series finale will be out in May, and by the end of the latest series, The Big Bang Theory will have notched up a staggering 279 episodes.
The show was created by Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady and premiered in 2007.
Last year, Lorre revealed season 12 could well be the last. Season 11’s last episode featured a wedding between Sheldon (Jim Parsons) and Amy (Mayim Bialik), which many presumed would be the finale for the show as a whole.
The Big Bang Theory star was also wary of being in a show which overstays its welcome, claiming ‘no-one wants to see an old, fat Raj’ During its run, The Big Bang Theory has been nominated for a whopping 52 Emmys, with 10 wins under its belt. However, it has never won the award for outstanding comedy series.
