"We are forever grateful to our fans for their support of The Big Bang Theory during the past twelve seasons. We, along with the cast, writers and crew, are extremely appreciative of the show's success and aim to deliver a final season, and series finale, that will bring The Big Bang Theory to an epic creative close", Warner Bros. Television, CBS and Chuck Lorre Productions said in a joint statement.

The Big Bang Theory's final season will premiere with a special broadcast on Monday, September 24 at 8/7c on CBS. There's another brand new episode that week as the show returns to its regular night time period on Thursday, September 27 at 8/7c.
