Jim Parsons, the star of The Big Bang Theory, is reportedly the reason behind the show's upcoming end. CBS and Warner Bros. TV recently announced that the series will conclude in May 2019.
Entertainment Weekly reported that CBS was trying to negotiate two more seasons, but talks ended when Parsons decided to walk away. Parsons, along with his original co-stars, was earning nearly $1 million per episode.
The Big Bang Theory will be the longest-running multi-camera series in TV history when it wraps up. The final season premieres on September 24th.
