“Big Bang Theory” ends its 12-season run tonight. Not only is it officially the longest-running multi-camera comedy in television history, but the CBS show has also won several awards and is beloved by fans. So, why would Jim Parsons, who stars as Sheldon, turn down returning for a 13th season?
In a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Jim explains that the decision was more simple than it sounds – there wasn’t a huge deciding factor that made him say “enough,” he was just ready to move on. “It was the first time in my life of doing this show that it occurred to me that I might not want to do another contract after [season] 12,” he says. “When you know, you know.”
Plus, he’s not really going away. He serves as the narrator and executive producer for CBS’s “Big Bang” prequel “Young Sheldon.”
