AceShowbiz - Fan-favorite comedy "The Big Bang Theory" is soon to wrap its story in its current season 12. The series finale is set to air on February 21 on CBS, and executive producer and showrunner Steve Holland teased in a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight that the finale would be "emotional."
"It feels a little bit surreal," Holland said after "Stage 25" on the Warner Bros. lot in Burbank was renamed and dedicated to the hit series on Thursday afternoon, February 7. "We knew it was coming, but when they revealed the plaque and saw it for real -- it just feels amazing. I mean Casablanca was shot on this lot and now we’re now part of Warner Bros. history. It’s just incredible."
Holland further dished some details about the final season, saying that they are woking on the script of episode 19 right now. "We write everything in order and we're writing episode 19 right now and [the finale] is episode 24. We're shooting 17, writing 19, so it'll still be a few more weeks away before we get to that," he explained.
"But we know what the finale will be. We've known what the big pieces are for a while, but now we know what the smaller pieces are, as well, and what we're driving towards," he continued saying. "We have it worked out and we're excited and nervous and, like everybody who's watching, we love these characters so much and we want to give them a send off that they deserve."
As for reboot, Holland said, "That's above my pay grade," while chuckling. "Part of me thinks that this show is such a special thing that you maybe want to leave it as a whole piece, but if someone came up with a great take on it and people were interested to do it, who knows?"
As for now, he wanted fans to focus on the final season. "I hope they're prepared to laugh, I hope they're prepared to be sad and to be nostalgic and to have to, at some point, say goodbye," he said. "We don't want to just have a fan-service finale that's only upbeat, but we love these characters and we all wish them the best and want the best for them."
Season 12 of "The Big Bang Theory" airs Thursdays at 8 P.M. on CBS.
