The Big Bang Theory has had a solid 11 years of television. Its cast has had a lucrative career than millions of actors would kill for. And yet, like all things, it was destined to come to an end. The announcement came a few weeks back, and the culprit behind it all was the show’s lead Jim Parsons, who felt it was time to leave the role of Sheldon Cooper behind.

With that, it was decided that Season 12 would be its last, and this coming spring would be the half-season to wind things down and put a capper on the whole deal. With such a big thing o the horizon, you’d think they’d have some seeds planted to be paid off in those last episodes, right? Well, according to co-creator Bill Prady…no, not really, as he revealed to US Weekly.

“We’re approaching the final season the same way we’ve approached the 11 seasons before: with no planning whatsoever. From day one, we have never planned an arc for a season. We don’t plan ahead, we just kind of just tell the next story.”

Translation: I wouldn’t expect the ending of this show to stretch beyond a few episodes, if that. For all we know, they decide to end things like any other episode (though I’d be surprised if they went that route). Unlike many other iconic sitcoms like How I Met Your Mother or Friends, I think this show is less about the characters and more about the laughs, than anything else, for better or worse. So maybe it’s a good thing that it’ll be planned when the time comes.
