‘The Big Bang Theory’ is the longest-running sitcom and Jim Parsons played the role of Sheldon Cooper in the series. He revealed that he had to go through an intense summer before the filming for season 12 and planned on quitting the show. John Shaffner said that the CEO had two more seasons and a contract was signed. This was before Parsons had announced his decision.
He stated that a chain of upsetting incidents had occurred during that time and he wanted to move on to try on new things. The Emmy winning actor said that he was shooting for the show, rehearsing for the play ‘The Boys in the Band’, and his dog’s health was also deteriorating. Things were exhausting and he had started to think about the death of his father. His father passed away at 52 and Jim is 47. He believed if he had only six years to live then he would want to try out different things. At the end of season 12, Parsons would be 46, which made him think a lot about his future. He was also afraid that his quitting would lead to the cast losing its job. With his dog passing away and his relationship with Todd Spiewak crossing 15 years, things got very overwhelming for him.
Chuck Lorre believed that if one member of the cast was to leave, the show had to end. Jim Parsons and Chuck had talked over this during his hiatus period and Parsons did not plan on returning back. The show ran for 12 years and portraying Sheldon was getting difficult as time passed.
