The season 11 finale airs tonight for The Big Bang Theory and it’s an episode to remember. Amy and Sheldon are set to walk down the aisle and actress Mayim Bialik appeared on Live! With Kelly and Ryan to promote it. Bialik, who plays Amy, said that there is a huge lineup of celebrities appearing on the episode. Kathy Bates and comedian Teller play Amy’s parents, and Wil Wheaton plays himself, of course. Mark Hamill also appears on the episode and Bialik said that she is a major Star Wars and Star Trek fan.
The finale airs from 8 – 8:31 p.m. ET/PT and 7 – 7:31 p.m. ET/PT on the CBS network. If you would like to watch the finale episode, but you don’t have cable or can’t get to a TV, you can watch CBS online, via your phone or on another streaming device just by signing up for one of the following cable-free, live-TV streaming services. Each of them cost a monthly fee but all come with a free trial, so that you can watch tonight’s show at no cost:
Amazon Prime: If you have Amazon Prime or want to start a free 30-day trial of Amazon Prime, you can watch a live stream of your local CBS channel via the CBS All-Access Amazon Channel, which comes with a 7-day free trial. Once you’re signed up for both Amazon Prime and the CBS channel, you can watch CBS live on your computer via the Amazon website, or on your phone, tablet or other streaming device via the the Amazon Video app.
CBS All Access: This service lets you watch a live stream of your local CBS channel (most markets included), as well as all of CBS’ on-demand library. It’s ultimately the same as the above option, only you’re watching through CBS’ digital platform rather than Amazon’s. You can sign up for a free 7-day trial, and then you can watch on your computer via the CBS website, or on your phone, tablet or streaming device via the CBS app.

The season 11 finale episode of The Big Bang Theory is titled “The Bow Tie Asymmetry” and the official CBS synopsis of the episode reads, “When Amy’s parents and Sheldon’s family arrive for the wedding, everybody is focused on making sure all goes according to plan – everyone except the bride and groom.” And, with season 11 coming to an end, fans want to know when season 12 of The Big Bang Theory starts? Is there a premiere date set? When is the show coming back? Is it canceled?
According to Deadline, the show has been renewed for season 12, but no premiere date has been released yet. But, according to Bustle, the show usually airs its premiere during the last two weeks of September. With that said, there is a good chance that season 12 will premiere towards the end of September 2018, on a Thursday night, unless the CBS network chooses to switch its time slot.
Unfortunately for fans, there is a good chance that season 12 could be the last for the show, as cast member Johnny Galecki reportedly told TV Line that, “The only manner in which the cast has discussed wrapping [The Big Bang Theory] has been that we’re all going to be very sad when that day comes. But I think at this point everyone’s very comfortable with 12 seasons being a good time to go home and see our families.” Bustle has also reported that show runner Steve Holland seemed to imply that season 12 could be the end as well.
In an interview with Digital Spy, Holland said that, “I know we have next season, but I don’t know what happens beyond that. And it’s not my decision to make. So all I can do is go forward with next season and make it great … We’re not leaving anything on the table in season 12. If there are stories we want to do, we will put them out there and see what happens.”
For those who need to catch up on episodes of The Big Bang Theory, they are also available to stream on CBS and Amazon as well. So, for those who’ve missed some episodes, feel free to watch episodes you haven’t yet seen.
