The Big Bang Theory's Final Table Reading Will Move You To Tears

"The Big Bang Theory" is remembered as one of the most memorable shows to debut in the 2000s. The sitcom first kicked off in 2007 and ran on CBS for over a decade, resulting in 12 seasons consisting of over 270 episodes. During its acclaimed run, the series nabbed 10 Emmys, solidifying its place in television history.

"The Big Bang Theory" focuses on roommates and scientists Sheldon Cooper (Jim Parsons) and Leonard Hofstadter (Johnny Galecki) as they navigate their intertwined careers and personal lives. Joining them on their journey of self-discovery are their neighbor, Penny (Kaley Cuoco), and various other friends and co-workers they come across. Most of the series takes place in the apartment building, where they assemble to watch movies, play games, and chat.

"The Big Bang Theory" gained considerable traction for diving deep into the nuances of geek culture and featured a number of notable cameos from various cultural pockets of society over its run. Despite parodying the lives of geeks and nerds, the series was an absolute juggernaut in the ratings department — the finale drew in 18 million viewers on CBS (via Deadline). Over its decade-plus run, an entire generation of fans grew into adulthood alongside the main roster of characters, making the finale a bittersweet experience for everyone on both sides of the television screen.

To celebrate the accomplished run of "The Big Bang Theory," CBS released the final table reading featuring the show's cast and crew, and it's an absolute tearjerker that'll leave you reminiscing about the time spent in Apartment 4A.

The Big Bang Theory cast read the final moments of the series

"The Big Bang Theory" has its curtain call on May 16, 2019, with a two-part wrap-up, with the final episode titled "The Stockholm Syndrome." In the finale, Sheldon heads to Sweden to receive the Nobel Prize alongside his friends. Following the typical hijinks that fans have come to expect, Sheldon closes the series with a heartfelt speech about the impact his friends have had on him throughout the years. After the emotional monologue comes to a close, audiences are taken back to Pasadena, California, where they see the characters enjoying each other's company in Apartment 4A for the last time.

If the finale brought you to tears, the final table reading of "The Big Bang Theory" will leave you sobbing. The emotional table read sees the cast members running their lines for the final time, without the expectations to fully perform, allowing them to engross themselves in Sheldon's final words. Cast members Mayim Bialik, Kaley Cuoco, Johnny Galecki, Simon Helberg, Melissa Rauch, and Kunal Nayyar are all seen crying as Jim Parsons reveals the final moments of the series.

Though it's a bittersweet moment for the fans and cast of "The Big Bang Theory," Cuoco, at the very least, hasn't ruled out the possibility of a reunion special.
