Fans Are Calling Jim Parsons Out For His “Shady” Behavior Post-Big Bang Theory, And They Aren’t Wrong

Since The Big Bang Theory came to an end, the cast has taken different paths. Johnny Galecki went off the map, while Jim Parsons has remained very active and hands-on with the franchise and Young Sheldon, despite being the one to end TBBT.

In the following, were are going to take a closer look at Jim's post-Big Bang Theory success, and why it isn't sitting well with certain fans. In addition, we are going to take a look at Kaley Cuoco and Johnny Galecki's lack of involvement on Young Sheldon, and why fans don't blame them for staying away from the TV series.

In conclusion, we will delve into the details of Jim Parsons reuniting with Mayim Bialik during the Young Sheldon finale.

Fans Are Upset That Jim Parsons Decided To End The Big Bang Theory, But Is Still Making Millions Off Young Sheldon

Not only were fans sad to see the show come to an end, but the same held true for the cast behind the scenes. Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco were particularly blindsided. The two crucial pieces of the show weren't warned beforehand. Suddenly, the show was ending, and there really wasn't anything they could do about it with Jim Parsons wanting off. Yes, it hurt the fans, but it also cut off Galecki and Cuoco's massive pays, which were among the top of all TV stars at the time.

Since then, Cuoco and Galecki have taken a backseat to Big Bang Theory-related content. However, the same doesn't hold true for Jim Parsons. Despite the actor ending TBBT, he's still making a fortune with Young Sheldon. This would lead to speculation of a blowup between Mayim Bialik, Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco and Johnny Galecki.

An insider revealed, “It's crazy how things have reversed in the six years since Big Bang Theory went off the air. Jim has become a key architect of the interconnected universe via his executive producing and narration role on Young Sheldon, which made him tens of millions of dollars beyond the vast fortune he built on the original show, where he made more than $25 million per year in the final seasons.”

Fans aren't necessarily praising Parsons for his continued success. Instead, it is very much the opposite. Fans can understand why Kaley Cuoco and Johnny Galecki might be bitter against their former co-star.

What did the fans say?

  • "Of course there's a rift. He quit TBBT to move onto other things and they decided to end the show because it wouldn't have been the same without him. Which cost Johhny, Kaley, Simon, and Kunal their salary of $1 million per episode and Melissa her $425,000 salary per episode. Then it's revealed that Young Sheldon won't be a short-lived series as originally thought so Jim would continue doing that for years to come and earning a supposed $1 million an episode salary on that too."
  • "It was pretty shady that Parsons was the one that ended the show only to continue on in the Sheldon universe, alone, while still raking in a lot of money. I'm sure the other actors were like No Thanks – when asked if they wanted some brief cameo in his show – no reason to validate his choice to rob them out of more years of money."

The report continued on, stating Galecki and Cuoco have distanced themselves from the show, while Bialik and Parsons continue to advance the franchise in different ways.

"During the same time period, Mayim had the profound epiphany that being a dedicated TV comedy actress, not a part-time game show host, was her destiny. And she, of course, sees a similar future to what Jim has enjoyed during the last few years as Warner Bros. seeks to make more shows set in this continuity. But today, in 2024, Kaley and Johnny aren't involved whatsoever," the insider revealed.

Once again, fans don't agree 100%, especially given that it was Parsons that decided to end the show in the first place. As of now, Cuoco has changed career paths, taking on film and serious genres. As for Johnny Galecki, his time in Hollywood has been minimal since TBBT ended. His focus is on family time and being a dad away from the spotlight in Nashville.

Reprising his Big Bang Theory role was "beautiful" according to Jim Parsons. Speaking with ET, the experience was better than expected for the actor.

What did Jim Parsons say about reviving Sheldon Cooper?

  • “It was even more beautiful than I expected it to be,” Parsons said.
  • “One of the reasons I was excited to do it is because what they wrote is so sweet and I think they worked Mayim [Bialik] and I into that show so beautifully. I hope everyone agrees.”

How did Mayim Bialik factor in?

  • "But also for us the way that they tape — because they’re a single-camera show and we’re multicamera — the whole look of the show was a really special experience. To get to go with Mayim, in a world we’re really guests and revisit these characters a little older, just a completely different circumstance.”

Parsons went on to admit that reprising the role wasn't as easy as he thought. The actor revealed he was a bit flustered at the start. But after a few hours, he was able to settle down and get back into his beloved character.
