In the USA the last episode “The Stockholm Syndrome” was broadcast on May 16. Subsequently, the trip to Stockholm for the ceremonial award of the Nobel Prize in Physics for Sheldon and Amy, played by Mayim Bialik, is imminent. On the flight, Penny alias Kaley Cuocoimmer has to fight with nausea again. Sheldon then has a panic attack, fearing that she is sick and could ruin his big day. The mood is in the basement, because Bernadette, played by Melissa Rauch, Howard, played by Simon Helberg, and Leonard also get to feel Sheldon’s moods, so that they want to leave right after their arrival in Sweden…
How does it continue?
TBBT fans can comfort themselves over the end of the series in various ways. On the one hand, CBS will show “Bye Bye Big Bang Theory – Das Special” on December 2 from 8.15 pm to 8.45 pm. In the documentary, the stars of the series, 33-year-old Kaley Cuoco and 44-year-old Johnny Galecki, offer an exciting and emotional look behind the scenes of the cult series. They take the viewer on a tour of the studio and recall stories from twelve years of “The Big Bang Theory”.
In addition, the nerds still have a firm grip on the station’s program. During the week, ProSieben shows three old TBBT episodes in the afternoon, which are repeated the following morning. In addition, four episodes of “The Big Bang Theory” will continue to be broadcast on Monday evening.
New episodes of “Young Sheldon”
With “Young Sheldon”, TBBT already has a successful offshoot, which has also been on show in Germany since January 2018. The series tells of Sheldon’s childhood and his life as a highly intelligent student of a high school where he is promoted several grades. Just like in his home country USA, “Young Sheldon” was very well received by fans of the quirky character, played by eleven-year-old Iain Armitage. On November 18, the series, which Jim Parsons is working on as narrator and executive producer, celebrated the finale of the second season on CBS.
