That’s what Jim Parsons thinks about the end
For twelve years “The Big Bang Theory” made the fans laugh. One month after the end of the popular US sitcom, leading actor and fan favourite Jim Parsons talks about why he decided against a 13th season.
Hardly a day seems to go by without “The Big Bang Theory” flickering across the screens of German television. For twelve years, the American sitcom thrilled a broad audience all over the world and has long since transformed characters like Sheldon Cooper (Jim Parsons) into a cult figure that everyone knows. On May 16th, the US channel CBS broadcast the grand finale of the series, which finally ended after the 12th season. In an interview with “Variety “Jim Parsons tells why he decided against a 13th season and why he is satisfied with the end of “TBBT”.
The end of Sheldon’s journey
Parsons admits in the interview that his relationship with his TV character had reached the end of the 12th season final. While other actors could have played Sheldon for many more years, he felt that everything that was possible had been brought out of Sheldon – not from the show itself, but from this one character. Had there been another season, he might have left the show and “The Big Bang Theory” would have lost an important character. His decision to leave the show was not due to disagreements on set, but simply reached a point where he realized that his “TBBT” journey had come to an end and Sheldon’s story was over.
The Next Project
After the end of “The Big Bang Theory” Jim Parsons can devote himself to new projects and challenges. In July he will be in front of the camera for “The Boys in the Band”, based on the novel of the same name by writer Mart Crowley and published in 1968. “American Horror Story” creator Ryan Murphy is filming the drama for Netflix, for which Parsons was already on the Broadway stage in 2018. In addition to Parsons, Murphy was able to win over actors such as Zachary Quinto, Matt Bomer and Charlie Carver.
