Almost four years ago, the last episode of the sitcom The Big Bang Theory aired. The fact that the ending didn’t go so smoothly has now been made public. The reason for this is Jim Parsons’ decision to leave the series.
Over three years ago, the sitcom The Big Bang Theory ended. Although the series was still very successful, the end must have come sooner than expected because Jim Parsons refused to renew his contract. Ultimately because he didn’t want to continue impersonating Sheldon Cooper. In fact, everything indicated that his co-stars took the surprising news well at the time. As it has now been announced, behind the scenes everything was less than harmonious.
Meanwhile, in the book The Big Bang Theory: The Definitive, Inside Story Of The Epic Hit Series, it was revealed that Johnny Galecki, who played Leonard in the series, was very disappointed with Parsons’ decision. There was also an unexpected conflict between Kaley Cuoco and actor Sheldon Cooper. Executive Producer Steve Holland recalled that Cuoco refused to make eye contact with Parsons during rehearsal. So that the series would not suffer, the feud was soon put aside.
Jim Parsons was surprised by the response
Now, interviewed by Jim ParsonsHe commented on his decision not to renew his contract: “It’s never good to hear you did something that made me angry or sad. But I did what I had to do and it was the best way to deal with it. Honestly, we weren’t the type of group that felt the need to have a group meeting beforehand.”
In the interview, Parsons also admitted that he was surprised by his colleagues’ reactions. He also explained that part of him would have been glad if The Big Bang Theory had continued without him. But the case did not happen. But even if the finale is associated with some turmoil, the sitcom certainly made television history. Everyone involved deserves a pat on the back.
