It’s A Wrap, The Big Bang Theory Shoots Final Episode

After 279 episodes and 12 years, The Big Bang Theory is coming to an end on May 16th. The cast and crew got together for the final tapings yesterday, and as expected it was an emotional event. 

The two-part final episode was taped in two different locations. The first was performed live, like usual, in front of a studio audience. In between takes Kaley Cucoco took time to enjoy time with the audience, and Johnny Galecki even took time to goof around on stage playing air guitar and laughing. Galecki did address the crowd before the final scene was shot however, saying it was “a dream come true for all of us.” Shedding tears as he spoke, Galecki continued with “You’ve been the best fans for 12 years. You are a part of a family, and we love you very much.” Cucoco added ‘The Big Bang Theory will live on in our hearts forever. It’s so sweet and simple, and it’s so true.”

The cast then moved on to a sound stage at Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank to film the final episode. This of course will help prevent leaks from happening as to how everything ends up. It also could mean that the final episode doesn’t take place in the usual locations. We’ll just have to wait until May 16th to find out.
