Big Bang Theory Series Finale Set

They’ve set an end date for “The Big Bang Theory.”

It will wrap with an hour-long series finale on Thursday, May 16!

“Young Sheldon” will move back an hour that night for its second season finale. When the series ends, “Big Bang” will finish as the longest-running multi-camera series in television history with 279 episodes. After “Big Bang Theory” ends its run, CBS is hoping that “Young Sheldon,” which follows Jim Parsons’ character Sheldon Cooper as a child, can fill its massive shoes.
