The cast of The Big Bang Theory left their mark on Hollywood with a Handprint Ceremony at the Historic TCL Chinese Theatre.
On the heels of Warner Bros. Television’s blockbuster comedy The Big Bang Theory filming the final episode of its remarkable 12-season, 279-episode run last night, series stars Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg, Kunal Nayyar, Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch received one of the most prestigious honors in entertainment when they left their handprints in cement at the TCL Chinese Theatre IMAX® in Hollywood today.
The Big Bang Theory is the first television series in history to be honored with the ceremony. The show will sign off as the longest-running multi-camera series in television history with a one-hour series finale Thursday, May 16, 2019, at 8/7c on CBS.
The Big Bang Theory executive producer and co-creator Chuck Lorre, who was a featured speaker at the event, said:
“Having just wrapped the final episode the night before, we’re on a bit of an emotional roller-coaster. But we can definitely count this iconic handprint ceremony at the Chinese Theatre as one of the highs. We’d like to thank all of our viewers who’ve supported us over the last 12 years and made an unforgettable event like this possible.”
