Jim Parsons is feeling grateful. The Emmy-winning star of The Big Bang Theory took to his Instagram to reflect on the show's landmark 12th and final season. CBS, Warner Bros. TV and Chuck Lorre Productions announced the upcoming season, which premieres Monday, Sept. 24, will be the last.
"It is hard (nearly impossible, actually) to really accept that this is a picture of the first of the final 24 episodes we will shoot for The Big Bang Theory. I feel very fortunate that we have another 23 episodes to shoot this season because I am hopeful that with each and every one, my level of REALLY accepting this fact will sink in," Parsons wrote, along with a photo of himself, Melissa Rauch, Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg, Mayim Bialik and Kunal Nayyar filming the first episode of season 12.
