That's tonight, BTW! The hourlong episode is actually a two-parter consisting of episodes titled "The Change Constant" and "The Stockholm Syndrome". After 12 seasons and 279 episodes, The Big Bang Theory is about to reach its final conclusion.

"The Big Bang Theory" became a cult classic despite some who questioned the show's chances of survival after it debuted in 2007.

"The Big Bang Theory" ended its series finale Thursday night with one last big surprise. The series began about geeky physicist roommates portrayed by Parsons and Galecki and expanded to include their friends, girlfriends and then wives. It inevitably made being nerds and comic book lovers a cool phenomenon in pop culture.

As well as attracting millions of viewers each week, it has won seven Emmy Awards from 46 nominations, while Parsons has earned four Emmy wins and a Golden Globe for his portrayal of Sheldon.

Live on September 22, 2013. The couple waited anxiously by the phone while friends prank called them before receiving the actual decision. They wanted a way to bookend the final episode with a moment from the series' pilot where Leonard predicted his children with Penny would be "smart and attractive". "Little girls who dream about science" should ignore naysayers, she said.

For starters, fans can expect the finale to feature Sheldon and Amy awaiting some "big news", while Howard and Bernadette continue their growth as parents when they struggle to leave their children alone for the first time.

The cast kept their lips sealed on the final episode, but did reveal what they'll miss most about working on the show.

Cooper gives a heartfelt acceptance speech that, to fans who have been tuning in since the show's beginning, shows how much the character has grown out of his egotistical and selfish personality over the course of 12 seasons.

Parsons: It's a real rite of passage moment in your life.

As it turned out, though, the episode (rather sweetly credited to a dozen writers, including co-creators Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady) served as a conduit to showcase the way in which the show itself has changed - adding key female characters, marrying off the guys and graduating to more grown-up problems and issues, without giving up their passion for things like comic books and "Star Wars" movies.
