"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. Something else I feel grateful for-and this gratitude needs no time to 'sink in' or become more realised, this grateful feeling is always with me but is multiplied in this moment os us announcing our final season-but I feel such intense gratitude for our devoted viewers who are the actual reason we have been graced with the opportunity to explore these characters for 12 years of our lives. I feel grateful to our crew- many many of whom have been with us since day one-and who are the people who bring a sense of steadiness and dependability, who are so warm and kind and always quick to say hello and smile at us every time we come to the set and who even though you don't see them on TV, are in many ways the real and steady heartbeat that keep this body of work alive and breathing while we, like flailing arms and legs, act like jackasses and fools in attempt to make someone laugh. I am grateful to all the writers of our show-those with us now and those that have come in gone-because without them, there would literally be no Big Bang Theory at all, ever. The writers thought of this show, the writers created these characters and have found ways of keeping it entertaining. I will miss you all of you and all of this more than I can say and more than I can know at this time."
In an official announcement that was made on Wednesday, August 22, the head of CBS Entertainment, Kelly Kahl said that the show had been defining the comedy of its generation.
