The Big Bang Theory star Mayim Bialik has opened up about the decision to end the show, admitting there were reasons at play that fans do not know about.
The hit sitcom came to its conclusion nearly two years ago, though in a new interview Mayim, who played Amy Farrah Fowler, explained that there were “factors” behind-the-scenes that viewers are unaware of.
“The way that I described the show ending was there are a lot of factors that the public doesn’t get to know about, about what goes into the decisions behind why a show doesn’t continue,” she told Us Weekly.
“I think, as someone who was grateful to work alongside Jim [Parsons] and eager to see the rest of what all of our lives held for us, I think there was a general feeling like it was time for us to move into something different.”
The star also reflected on The Big Bang Theory’s legacy, saying: “I would like our show to be remembered as a show that really demonstrated how the other half lives or how most of us live, which is kind of on the outside in some way. I think everyone has a little bit of outsider in them.
“And I know that Big Bang Theory is often credited with kind of making nerd chic a thing. But for those of us who kind of have those kinds of friends and revolve in those kinds of circles, I guess it just kind of is what it always has been for us. It’s just the way to think and live and play in many cases.”
Mayim’s latest comments come after she recently addressed reunion rumours, suggesting that the gang will not be getting back together anytime soon.
“Because we just finished, it’s kind of hard to think about [a] reunion or reboot,” she said. “I’m a happy Warner Bros employee, I have a production company there. Anything more Warner Bros would like, I’m pretty much available. So, don’t have to ask me twice!”
