When The Big Bang Theory (Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET on CTV) returns with new episodes on April 4, it will be the beginning of the end. The beloved comedy just passed Cheers as the longest running multi cam show in history and is set to air its one-hour series finale on Thursday, May 16. With only a few episodes left, both fans and the cast are beginning to get emotional about saying goodbye, but thankfully star Kaley Cuoco has plans on extending the life of The Big Bang Theory. You know, beyond the daily reruns that we look forward to watching for years.
Cuoco is the latest spokesperson for Shell, teaming up with the company to promote their new initiatives for cleaner fuel alternatives to help reduce carbon footprints. While discussing her partnership, Cuoco revealed that she’s been hanging on to a huge secret for the past 12 seasons. Pictures or it didn’t happen.
Speaking with AOL, Cuoco said that she has a collection of more than 2,000 Polaroids that she’s snapped since the series premiere of The Big Bang Theory back in 2006, featuring a behind the scenes look at the show that fans have yet to experience. The actor said she’s planning on releasing the private photos as a book that fans can enjoy. “I’ll wait about another year or two, but that’s the goal with the Polaroids. I think fans will love it. [Maybe] a cool coffee table book?” said Cuoco. “I have pictures that are unbelievable, like behind-the-scenes from the pilot that are just incredible.”
We have a feeling Shell isn’t going to be the only company Cuoco partners with this year. Expect to see Polaroid cameras have yet another resurgence.

Cuoco has shared a snapshot (pun!) of what fans can expect with her book, featuring candid shots of the cast, both on set and hanging out in their dressing rooms.
The actor, who boasts an Instagram following of 5.1 million, has been the most active cast member when it comes to sharing candid moments with the cast online, with Cuoco frequently posting shots from the final season.

We’ll miss these fake dinner scenes with real food.
For fans that are already nervously anticipating the cryfest that will come with the show’s finale (raises hand), Cuoco says that the cast feel the same. “We’ve definitely been more aware of our surroundings and keeping every moment in,” Cuoco told AOL. “It’s been 12 years and we’re all extreme basket cases right now. […] I still can’t believe the impact that the show has had on so many different people all over the world. It’s been an unbelievable experience, and I think it will be devastating to wrap it all up, but it’s also nice to kind of move forward.”
Where in the fan contract that we signed in 2006 does it say it’s okay for everyone to move forward? We finally got our spot on the couch just perfect.
