A tweet from the show’s official Twitter account revealed that the hour-long finale will air on the US channel CBS on Thursday 16th May at 8pm Eastern Time.

E4 will air the episode at a later date in the UK.

The seven-time Emmy-winning sitcom starring Jim Parsons is coming to an end after 12 series, and his co-star Mayim Bialik recently spoke about the “grief” she will feel when bidding farewell to the show.

However, the show’s spin-off, Young Sheldon, was recently renewed for a third and fourth series.

Parsons will continue to narrate the series as Sheldon while Iain Armitage plays the younger version of his character on-screen.

In February CBS Entertainment president Kelly Kahl also hinted that another spin-off series could be considered.
