Why Is ‘The Big Bang Theory’ Ending?

Our long, national The Big Bang Theory nightmare is coming to an end later this year, after 250-plus episodes, 12 seasons, and four nominations for Outstanding Comedy Series at the Emmys.

The CBS sitcom is still one of television’s highest-rated shows, but star Jim Parsons requested to leave once his contract expired, and creator Chuck Lorre decided to pull the plug “unless all key auspices were coming back” (Parsons is one of Bang‘s three leads, alongside Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco).
