It all started with a big bang. But now, this supernova of a show is entering its final orbit
The Big Bang Theory, Thursday 21 February, 8pm, E4/HD (CH 106/145). Also available for 7 days in Catch Up > Channels > All 4
After 12 seasons, 279 episodes, 56 awards and 216 nominations, The Big Bang Theory is coming to an end. That’s no “bazinga!” – we’re deadly serious, people. No more “Fun with Flags”. Goodbye “Soft Kitty”. And after all the alive/dead debates, we guess we have to consider that this particular box has been opened and Schrödinger’s cat is well and truly deceased. (Soz.)
You might already be mourning the impending death of this comedy behemoth, but hold back the weepies for now. Leonard (Johnny Galecki), Sheldon (Jim Parsons), Penny (Kaley Cuoco), Howard (Simon Helberg), Raj (Kunal Nayyar), Bernadette (Melissa Rauch) and Amy (Mayim Bialik) are back on E4 for the final, final, final episodes. So, that means we have time to say goodbye to our favourite US sitcom properly.
Will Sheldon and Amy win a Noble Prize? Will Leonard and Penny have a baby? Will Raj and Stuart find happiness? Will Bernadette finally convince Howard to wear some looser slacks? These are the big questions that we hope will be wrapped up in a package tighter than those aforementioned trousers.
But while we wait for those answers, let’s take a look back with our A-Z of the facts and stats you need to know about The Big Bang Theory. Simply click/hover over each element on our periodic table to find out more…
