If you are not happy regarding the announcement that The Big Bang Theory is ending with Season 12, you are definitely not alone. Star Mayim Bialik opened about her thoughts surrounding the news, and she is just as sad about it as anyone else could be. In a blog post, Bialik puts words to her feelings, saying:

Am I happy? Of course not. This has been my job since Melissa Rauch and I joined the cast as regulars in season 4. I love my job. I love my castmates, and I feel such appreciation for our incredible crew, our brave writers, our entire staff, and our amazing fans. So many people are a part of our Big Bang family. This is hard. I love coming to work and pretending to be Amy. She's a riot. She's me, and I am her. And soon she will not be mine to create.

Mayim Bialik's heartfelt post on Grok Nation should come as a cathartic release to fans still stunned by the news of the series ending. It seems like just yesterday that CBS was saying they did not think the upcoming season of The Big Bang Theory would be the show's last. The reasons behind why the series is ultimately coming to an end aside -- Jim Parsons wanted out -- fans can focus on the whole new season that lies ahead.

While she opens up about her life off-screen in her post, Mayim Bialik dives back into talking about her feelings over The Big Bang Theory ending. Many fans will undoubtedly be able to relate to one of her points as the series' final season begins airing. Bialik said:

But my paying job---the one you know me for---is ending and yes: It's very sad. I fear it's going to be very hard to not cry every day for the next 23 episodes! But, as a cast, we love bringing joy to our viewers and we will continue to do that to the best of our collective ability.

Mayim Bialik says the cast is doing their best to please viewers with the show's final season, which offers yet another insight into why the sitcom's ensemble is a fan-favorite. The extended cast is just as great, too, and The Big Bang Theory is already off to a running start by bringing back Kathy Bates as Amy's mother for Season 12. So while there is sadness to be felt, there is also the fun of speculating where the final season could take its characters.

The possibility of Amy and Sheldon starting a family is chief among the questions that fans will have to tune in to learn the answer to. There is also the question of where the cast will turn up next in their careers. Will there be spinoffs beyond Young Sheldon to keep the show's universe spinning? And will any of the original cast return to anchor those potential follow-ups?

Whether another Big Bang Theory spinoff is involved or not, it will be interesting to see what the super-popular cast members get up to next, especially if it will involve another multi-camera sitcom. They have all enjoyed storied success with one, so as the adage goes, "if it is not broke..." In her post, Mayim Bialik also wonders where her career and life will go next. It is a question that many fans will be staying tuned to find out.

Yesterday, Mayim Bialik's co-star Kaley Cuoco shared her feelings surrounding the announcement of The Big Bang Theory coming to an end. Suffice it to say that the news has saddened both actresses. Along with sharing their sentiment, they both also spoke strongly about the impending season, which should be an emotional and fun ride that will hopefully give all of its characters a feel-good sendoff.

The twelfth and final season of The Big Bang Theory premieres September 24 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS. For new television shows set to arrive this fall, check out CinemaBlend's guide to TV's fall premieres. For other new content coming to CBS, you can check out the network's fall schedule here.
