What didn’t catch the audience’s eye was the fact that Big Bang Theory had a potential season thirteen. Yes! According to reports Jim Parsons rejected a 50 million dollar deal for the role of Sheldon Cooper for season thirteen of the Big Bang Theory. The entire cast as per reports did not want the thirteenth season. But why would a cast who’s loved by billions and is getting paid, reject such an opportunity? Jim Parsons during an interview explained why he rejected the offer. The cast did not want to make the same mistake as other shows. The mistake being; running the show for too long until the audience is bored and the show entails a low rating.
A wise choice
Experts characterize this as an amazing strategy. Ending the show on a high rating and happy audience would serve the directors best, rather than a long one. It still has more seasons than most sitcoms out there such as How I met your mother and FRIENDS. Even though you might be disappointed, the tactic has enabled the show to interest the audience for all 12 seasons rather than only a few. The thirteenth season would have been a mistake.
