Kaley Cuoco Spoke About The Emotional Moment She And Johnny Galecki Found Out Jim Parsons Was Leaving “Big Bang Theory”
“That was the one thing we all agreed on — we came in together, we go out together.”
The CBS sitcom was huge and thrust its leading stars into the mainstream spotlight. It was so successful that the cast was even able to negotiate million-dollar-per-episode payouts from Season 8 onward.
However, it all had to come to an end at some point. But Cuoco and Galecki were left blindsided after being pulled into show creator Chuck Lorre’s office — where they thought they were about to enter into discussions about Season 13 — to be met with Jim Parsons announcing his departure.
The revelation that Parsons was planning on leaving left Cuoco “in a state of shock” and a meeting apparently followed where “everyone had their open feelings, and there were questions and tears.”
