The Big Bang Theory season 12 spoilers: Kaley Cuoco RETURNS in new episode after show end

The Big Bang Theory has just a few episodes left before it ends for good.

It is not yet known how the series will eventually wrap up, but fans are surely in for a tear-jerker as hinted at by many members of the cast.

But thankfully, someone is looking out for Big Bang Theory fans, as the fun will not end once the final episode has been aired on CBS next month.

It has now been announced The Big Bang Theory will see a farewell special for the series immediately after the season 12 finale.

The special is titled: “Unraveling the Mystery: A Big Bang Farewell,” and will delve deeper into the show than ever before.

The special will supposedly follow Penny star Kaley Cuoco and Leonard Hofstadtler actor Johnny Galecki taking viewers behind the scenes of the show following its final recording.

Together, Kaley and Johnny will give a tour of the set and share clips of their favourite moments throughout the twelve seasons so far.

Alongside these features, the pair will also be showing interviews of other members of the cast and crew to discuss the series as a whole.

The special was announced on CBS’ Twitter account, which read: “The Big Bang Theory is going out with a BANG and with a new special!

“Don’t miss ‘Unraveling The Mystery: A Big Bang Farewell’ Thursday, May 16 at 9:30/8:30c!”

The final episode of The Big Bang Theory will be an hour long, and will be followed by the season two finale of Young Sheldon. Unraveling the Mystery will air after this.

Until then, the characters have a handful of episodes left to get through before their final ventures on screen.

And in the most recent episode promo Sheldon Cooper (played by Jim Parsons) and Amy Farrah Fowler (Mayim Bialik) are set to go up against their rival once again.

Dr. Pemberton (Sean Austin) is ready to return to the show, and is going to take on the power couple for their Nobel Prize.

And the promo shows off Dr. Pemberton taking on Sheldon and Amy in a hilarious fight scene at a restaurant.

It even includes Sheldon’s drink being tossed across the venue, prompting him to scream: “That was my iced tea!”

Fans of the show are ecstatic about the next episode, but are not looking forward to the show ending outright.

One fan recently posted on the Big Bang Twitter account: “Can’t believe The Big Bang Theory is ending so soon. My life won’t be the same. Thank you guys for the most amazing years.”

While another said: “It’s hard to believe that the end is really happening… I’m gonna cry, it’s like lost friends of mine.”

The Big Bang Theory airs Thursdays on CBS and in the UK on E4.
