Jim Parsons has revealed the reasons behind his decision to leave The Big Bang Theory in a recent interview. The actor, who played Sheldon Cooper for over a decade on the hit CBS sitcom, explained that he felt "exhausted" due to work pressure and personal incidents.
Parsons admitted that he had a suspicion about leaving the show when he signed on for the final two seasons. The final push came when Parsons experienced a series of emotional events, including the death of his beloved dog and breaking his foot. These incidents prompted him to reevaluate his professional life and make a change.
