“This ride has been a dream come true and as life changing as it gets,” she wrote on Instagram in late August. “No matter when it was going to end, my heart would have always been broken in two. Drowning in tears, we promise to bring you the best season yet.”

She added: “To the fans, our crew, families, Chuck Lorre, Warner Brothers, CBS, and everyone who has supported us for so many years, thank you. We are going out with a bang.”

The Big Bang Theory airs on Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
