No one is as upset about The Big Bang Theory ending as Jim Parson — despite what the media may say.
It was announced on Wednesday that, after 12 years on the air, the scientific comedy would be coming to a conclusion following its forthcoming season.
A report by Entertainment Weekly had alleged that Jim, who plays the incorrigible yet lovable Dr. Sheldon Cooper, was responsible for the series ending as CBS and Warner Bros. Television were looking to pick up the show for two additional seasons before he chose to walk away.
In response, the 45-year-old posted a message on Instagram which conveyed his heartbreak over Big Bang embarking on its final season:
“It is hard (nearly impossible, actually) to really accept that this is a picture of the first of the final 24 episodes we will shoot for The Big Bang Theory,” he wrote in the post which thanked the show’s fans, crew, cast members, and writers. “I feel very fortunate that we have another 23 episodes to shoot this season because I am hopeful that with each and every one, my level of REALLY accepting this fact will sink in.”
Sounds like a good hypothesis.
