Well we shall see if something comes up  before next year you never know what could happen they could even change their minds

I wouldn't hold your breath.  If Jim walked away from millions for additional seasons, I don't know what else they could offer to get him change his mind.

Problem is The Big Bang Theory  is too expensive now for CBS. 

And if it wasn't that expensive for more what, 2, 3 seasons and they started to be run out of good storyplots? Would be better keeping the show on air because the money even without much quality?

Personally I prefer they wrap the each character life stories before it sounds like without much to tell. Even it hurts a lot in my fan heart. That really hurt since yesterday but can understand Jim's decision though. Just my opinion :)

Idk ok I’m sorry I understand your point

No thank you 😊  

By reboot I mean the show🤨

Good to know. I don't. If the show ends, it ends, there's no reboot. There may be reunion or a movie, highly unlikely. But who knows The Brady Bunch did a couple of movies.

And they were worse than the show. And thee Brady Bunch was  already an awful show without them.  TV Sitcoms Made-For-TV Movies usually are not very good. The last one I can remember doing one was Growing Pains and it was okay.  Dramas TV Movie specials are usually better and that why you need to see more of them. I can't see this cast doing a Movie or any kind of special like that 

It depends on what kind of reunion special we are talking about. i could see the cast reuniting on a talk show in the future (like 10 or 20 years) to talk about their time  on the show. The Morning Shows do a lot of those with Classic TV Casts reunions. I like watching the Now  if we are talking about a them coming back and doing  Episode Special sometime in the future. No Thank.

But of course who knows? None of us know what the future will bring or what will happen in the future. Time will tell

I think she means with finding new TV and Movie Roles. Jim will have a hard time in finding a new TV Role as he now typecasted unfortunately but he will probably have  a solid career on Broadway.  And that most likely is just fine with him.  His heart is with broadway more than TV Acting. I can see Kaley doing another Show eventually.  Bit I think she will take time off from acting to start a Family. 

He’s free to do whatever he wants. He can self-produce. I’m sure he’ll be “attached” to projects in some creative and beneficial way. He is not at risk in any sense... so far as I know. Maybe from Mike Pence.

  • Lenny get pregnant. Kaley playing Penny pregnant would be good

Read an interesting take on Lenny in article on the ending from Screen Rant.  "Given that it will be TBBT final hurrah, fans of Penny & Leonard will nothing more than see the two's relationship progress. Since they got married it seemed like their story was cast aside to favor other character trajectories in the series - an odd thing considering that they are TBBT principal couple. It was the two's relationship that covered the romance angle in the series long before Howard and Sheldon got together with Bernadette and Amy. At one point the show even addressed their married life's lack of progress seeing that until now, they seem to not want to have a baby"

Interesting analysis

Spot on. And that was always the point of the show . Lenny were the main couple

For the people on social media saying that they’re glad The Big Bang Theory is ending and good riddance, why do they have to be so rude?! If they think that the show is not funny anymore and is boring, then don’t watch and comment on their posts. I personally still love the show and the cast. There are fans who are genuinely sad to see the show end so please be respectful! Geez. Who agrees?! I know a lot of people say that the show has gone downhill and not funny anymore but it’s been 12 seasons for crying out loud! They did pretty good for being on the air for so long. I know some people say the cast are not into it anymore, I don’t blame them cause it’s been many years. They want to move on. They wouldn’t have stayed for 12 seasons if they didn’t care. Lol. Trust me.

I am one of those people. IMO the writing of the show started to go downhill at the end of S7 and I wouldn't have minded if it had ended after S8, with that season having been written as the last one and not how it was actually written. However, I would never dream of being disrespectful or mean to Jim because of the decision he made. He's totally within his rights to do so. As far as I've known about him, Jim doesn't appear to be a stupid person, therefore I'm sure he has very good reasons for not wanting  to continue with TBBT.

My reason is crystal clear, and simple 🙂

1 he is making a remake of a British sitcoms 

2 broadway pays horribly 

1) And?

2) Do you really thin he needs the money? As a matter of fact, he could afford to work for free for the rest of his life if he so chose.

That has never been stated by Bill Prady and Chuck Lorre.

Quote

Where did the original concept come from?

Lorre: We were discussing two different ideas together. One was about a woman who’s pretty much getting her life started at the beginning of adulthood. And Bill was talking about the 80s and the genius computer programmers that he was one of. And they were such remarkable characters that it kind of took over and then we said “What happens if we put the two ideas together?” and then I think the big move was to get them out of the computer world entirely and make them quantum physicists. They’re not entrepreneurs. They’re scientists. That freed us up from a lot of clichés. No pocket protectors!

I also want a birthday party for Penny, planned by Leonard, of course. Also, I'm a sucker for holiday episodes, so a Halloween, Thanksgiving, and/or Christmas episode would be awesome! 


Yeah all good ideas. A Leonard bday party would be great. Callback to Season One, The Peanut Reaction. The one Leonard never got too see. Other than via Penny’s phone hahahaha. It’s about time Leonard got his due!

Another Halloween episode, or thanksgiving episode be good as well.

Somewhere between multimillion dollar weddings, private jet travel, beach houses, bi-coastal mansions Presidential suites,, 200k cars etc. - what else do they need.  The original cast is set for life (and their children’s lives) if they aren’t just stupid with money.  Now the producing stuff is different.  How long do they have studio deals once TBBT is over?  That stuff can be expensive.  Jim is pretty well set with tons of extra millions from Young Sheldon.

As far as being type casting goes- they all will have some real issues but they have all faced issues anyway.  Johnny is a hell of an actor and had a great opportunity coming off of Rosanne but being so short was a major casting issue (except for TBBT or if you are Tom Cruise. It will continue to be a casting issue.   Jim is not exactly leading man materiel in the conventional sense but look at what John Goodman did after Roseanne. Some of them will shed their TBBT character more easily than others.  It will be interesting to follow them.

What I would most like in season 12 is a Lenny pregnancy and maybe the birth but I can settle for her still being pregnant when it ends.

I would also very much like to see something happen with Raj, at least potential, something thay shows him going somewhere (metaphorically).

I'm not all thay keen to see Howard's dad. I'm satisfied with Howardette.

Shamy are fine, they could continue with Super Asymmetry. A plot where she is the center of attention and he struggles but supports her would be nice.

Penny's sister! I would like to see her more than Leonard's siblings. Maybe have the whole family. I do not care that much about their last name, it's kind of a running gag now. Maybe they could do an almost reveal and/or meta-joke about that.

None of those would totally surprise me but I don't want to see any of them personally.

There is no problem.  TBBT is ending.  Jim wants to move on.  I personally wish him the best and hopefully he has continued success on Broadway and his production company grows into what he envisions.  Projects he has now could certainly, grow, change, evolve.  I respect his decision and don't see any sort of problem here at all.

I wish the best for all the cast.  We don't know them personally or what their career, family, personal goals are.  At some point TBBT, the show had to end.  Good luck to them all!

Maybe now that they know they're ending, we'll get Penny's maiden name. They thought it would be bad luck after not giving it over time to have one. Bad luck, I assume meant they thought they'd be cancelled. No problem now :).

 

The same with the elevator. Gene Roddenberry specifically had the turbo lifts on the Enterprise (instead of beaming to the part of the ship you wanted to go) so the characters could have dialog. BBT used the steps. They could easily now use the elevator. They never fixed it because of the same superstition with Penny's last name.
