She told US Weekly,
The way that I described the show ending was there are a lot of factors that the public doesn’t get to know about, about what goes into the decisions behind why a show doesn’t continue.
I think, as someone who was grateful to work alongside Jim [Parsons] and eager to see the rest of what all of our lives held for us, I think there was a general feeling like it was time for us to move into something different.
The actress also spoke about the legacy of the CBS comedy, saying:
I would like our show to be remembered as a show that really demonstrated how the other half lives or how most of us live, which is kind of on the outside in some way. I think everyone has a little bit of outsider in them.
And I know that Big Bang Theory is often credited with kind of making nerd chic a thing. But for those of us who kind of have those kinds of friends and revolve in those kinds of circles, I guess it just kind of is what it always has been for us. It’s just the way to think and live and play in many cases.
Mayim’s new remarks come after she recently discussed rumors of a reunion, indicating that the group will not be reuniting anytime soon. She said,
Because we just finished, it’s kind of hard to think about [a] reunion or reboot. I’m a happy Warner Bros employee, I have a production company there. Anything more Warner Bros would like, I’m pretty much available. So, don’t have to ask me twice!
The Big Bang Theory series finale aired on CBS on 16th May 2019.
