We’re only a few hours away from the one-hour series finale of The Big Bang Theory (Thursday, May 16 at 8/9MT on CTV) and the cast is continuing to prove they’re just as distraught about the end of the BBT universe as we are. Kaley Cuoco has been sharing pics from the past 12 seasons for months, even announcing a coffee table book that will feature behind the scenes Polaroids the actor shot over the past decade. Now Melissa Rauch is diving into the vault with her own collection of candid images of the cast and crew to ensure that our emotions are at an 11 before Thursday night’s finale. Someone sing “Soft Kitty” to us.

Rauch has played Bernadette Rostenkowski-Wolowitz since Season 3, joining BBT the same year as Mayim Bialik, with both women quickly promoted to series regulars. Posting her first collection of pictures on Tuesday, Rauch wrote “Since we’re just a couple days away from the @bigbangtheory_cbs finale, thought I’d share some of my favorite pics from over the years. Get ready for some traffic on memory lane!” If the traffic is our tears then yes, it’s total gridlock.

Featuring both on-set and off-set pictures of the cast, Rauch’s images include a Thanksgiving episode and the cast winning an award.


The second gallery includes the famous big bear that Howard and Bernadette were gifted in Season 9 during Bernadette’s first pregnancy, as well as more award show pics. We may never get over how much cooler the cast looks when not in character. Except for Kaley Cuoco. She gets to be cool on screen as well.

Season 10, the show’s 200th episode, and Rauch’s real-life pregnancy all made for beautiful memories in the second gallery.

More memories from the lane…💗

Rauch went all the back to the beginning, her ‘big bang’ if you will, and shared a picture of her ‘lucky’ dress that she wore during her audition for TBBT, as well as her callback and table read. There’s probably some long scientific explanation of why ‘luck’ isn’t real, but if we got to do 12 seasons of anything successful you better believe we’re keeping that dress.


Rauch isn’t the only cast member getting sentimental today. Jim Parsons posted a simple black and white image of the cast in their pre-show group huddle, writing “I hope you get a chance to tune in and I hope you enjoy all of it. If you enjoy it even half as much as we’ve enjoyed (LOVED) creating this show for the past 12 years, then that’ll be a WHOLE WHOLE lot of enjoyment. All of us will miss seeing you in this format, but we will be around in all sorts of ways, I assure you… love love love.”
Love love love cry cry cry.

It was really hard to pick the right pic for this post, so here is a shot of us in a hug after we filmed the last group scene we would ever film for the series… and TONIGHT is THE NIGHT… it’s the series finale at 8pm EST and then there’s the Young Sheldon (season!) finale, and then a special behind the scenes show hosted by @kaleycuoco and @sanctionedjohnnygalecki and then the entire cast is on @colbertlateshow I hope you get a chance to tune in and i hope you enjoy all of it. If you enjoy it even half as much as we’ve enjoyed (LOVED) creating this show for the past 12 years, then that’ll be a WHOLE WHOLE lot of enjoyment. All of us will miss seeing you in this format, but we will be around in all sorts of ways, I assure you… love love love ❤️❤️❤️
