The Big Bang Theory: Where are they now?

The Big Bang Theory graced our screens for twelve entertaining seasons and we can never forget how a theoretical physicist and his three nerd friends were able to make us laugh out loud with their epic hijinks! To top that, we gushed over their beautiful neighbour who later turned out to be one of the most important characters of the cast.

Jim Parsons (Sheldon Cooper), Johnny Galecki (Leonard Hofstadter), Kaley Cuoco (Penny Teller), Simon Helberg (Howard Wolowitz), Kunal Nayyar (Rajesh Koothrappali), Mayim Bialik (Amy Farrah Fowler) and Melissa Rauch (Bernadette Rostenkowski) were seven of the most interesting people that we wanted to be friends with! The series ran on CBS from September 2007 to May 2019 and the show could easily be termed as one of the most-watched sitcoms in history.

The cast took up different projects ever since The Big Bang Theory concluded in 2019. Let us take a look at what the cast has been up to post the iconic series:

My favorite character is Penny. She is beautiful. Survey said that female models are number one choice for dates like female doctors. And she is a great actress also. Physics I can do on my own, read books or speak to other guys.
