Jim Parsons, better known as Sheldon on The Big Bang Theory, said on Live With Kelly and Ryan that “it’s possible” his hugely popular show may end after the upcoming season. Parsons explained that The Big Bang Theory’s cast members’ contracts end after Season 12, which is the season that will begin airing this fall.

However, the end is not a definite. Parsons said the cast and creator Chuck Lorre haven’t had a “come to Jesus conversation, which is what it would take” to end the show.

The audience of Live seemed saddened. One woman even shouted out Parsons’s character’s catchphrase, “Bazinga!”

The Big Bang Theory began airing in 2007 and has been a continued ratings success for CBS. It has even spawned a spinoff series, Young Sheldon.
