Big Bang Theory Star Mayim Bialik Hints at Secret Reasons Why the Show Really Ended

The Big Bang Theory was in its twelfth season and was a ratings juggernaut when the makers of the show abruptly announced that it was set to end. The news caught many by surprise. Over time, it was revealed that the main reason for the cancellation was Jim Parsons’ desire to move on from the role of Sheldon Cooper. In a new interview with Us, Mayim Bialik who played Amy Farrah Fowler on the show hinted at secret factors that led to the cancellation of the series.

“The way that I described the show ending was there are a lot of factors that the public doesn’t get to know about, about what goes into the decisions behind why a show doesn’t continue. I think, as someone who was grateful to work alongside Jim and eager to see the rest of what all of our lives held for us, I think there was a general feeling like it was time for us to move into something different.”

The cast and crew of The Big Bang Theory had always presented a united front. It was believed that once Parsons decided to move on, the general sentiment behind the scenes was that no one else could play Sheldon as well as him, and the show would not be the same without the character that Parsons had played to such great acclaim. In a past interview, Parsons had explained that the recent death of his dog, as well as various personal factors, had created a desire within him to explore roles other than Sheldon Cooper.

“I had this moment of clarity that I think you’re very fortunate to get in a lot of ways, of going: ‘Don’t keep speeding by’. You know? ‘Use this time to take a look around’. And I did. If you told me that, like my father, I had six years left to live, I think there’s other things I need to try and do. I don’t even know what they are, but I can tell that I need to try.”

Since The Big Bang Theory ended, Jim Parsons has made good on his decision to explore new avenues, producing and starring in a range of television and movie projects including Hollywood, A Kid Like Jake, and The Boys in the Band. Meanwhile, The Big Bang Theory continues to enjoy a vast global audience on streaming platforms. For Mayim Bialik, the show is best remembered as a celebration of those who live on the fringes of social norms.

“I would like our show to be remembered as a show that really demonstrated how the other half lives or how most of us live, which is kind of on the outside in some way. I think everyone has a little bit of outsider in them. And I know that Big Bang Theory is often credited with kind of making nerd chic a thing. But for those of us who kind of have those kinds of friends and revolve in those kinds of circles, I guess it just kind of is what it always has been for us. It’s just the way to think and live and play in many cases.”
