The CBS comedy series wrapped up its 276-episode run Thursday, May 16, with fans having to say goodbye to Sheldon, Leonard, Penny and the rest of the gang for the last time.
With the end of the show, the talented core cast are free to pursue other opportunities, as well as exciting things in their personal lives.

After saying goodbye to Leonard Hostadter, Galecki will continue to step into his iconic role of David Healy on the Roseanne spinoff series, The Conners, this fall.
Despite him saying he needed time before settling into a series regular role, he told TVLine he would "visit as much as possible" in the upcoming 19-episode Season 2.
Galecki is also preparing to welcome his first child, a baby boy with girlfriend Alaina Meyer.
"We are absolutely over the moon to announce that we will soon be welcoming a little one into this crazy and wonderful world," he wrote on social media after announcing the exciting news.
