The Big Bang Theory is ending after 12 seasons and 279 episodes because Jim Parsons realized he didn't want to do it anymore, and the producers decided they'd rather end the show than keep going without a member of the ensemble. ("I couldn't wrap my head around the idea of going on without the whole ensemble — and the whole ensemble is why we succeeded," co-creator Chuck Lorre said.) Negotiations for a 13th season were starting to happen last summer when Parsons made his decision, and the four-time Emmy winner opened up to The Hollywood Reporter about his thought process in making that call. According to Parsons, the choice to say goodbye to Sheldon Cooper was a pretty intuitive one.

"It was the first time in my life of doing this show that it occurred to me that I might want to not do another contract after [season] 12 was up," Parsons said. "I don't know if it's because I'm an Aries or just because maybe I'm in touch with myself. Whatever it is, once I had that thought, I was like, 'Well, that's your answer.'" Pretty un-Sheldon-like thought process, if you ask us.
