The Big Bang Theory Producer Says They Never Seriously Considered Character Spin-Offs


“The Big Bang Theory” producer Steve Holland explained in Jessica Radloff’s book why there wasn’t much attraction to the idea of a spinoff. “I think we felt there was no winning with something like that. ‘Big Bang’ was this magical thing that we captured, and then to recapture it with any version of them that wasn’t the whole cast wasn’t something we really wanted to do,” he said.

Back in 2019, stars Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco both expressed resistance to a possible spinoff series. “I don’t think it would be a disaster, but it wouldn’t be ‘Big Bang,'” Galecki told The Hollywood Reporter. Cuoco added to that, “Uh, no! But if Chuck [Lorre] asked me I would highly consider it because I don’t say no to Chuck!”

Fans may remember that the beginning of the end for “The Big Bang Theory” was set in motion due to star Jim Parson’s decision to leave the show (via Us Magazine). Entertainment Weekly reported, at the time, that the fan-favorite comedy would conclude in 2019 (the following year), which it did. The sudden, surprising conclusion left many wondering if they’d see these brainy characters grace the screen again. That wasn’t to be, although the thought wasn’t entirely off the table at first. Holland admitted, “We joked about in the room, and people would toss out ideas, but it wasn’t seriously given consideration.”
