There's also a UCLA scholarship created by and named for the series to support undergrad study in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).

Cuoco who plays Penny, the girl next door reacted to the news on Instgram. 

Alongside a photo with her castmates she wrote: "This ride has been a dream come true and as life changing as it gets. No matter when it was going to end, my heart would have always been broken in two. Drowning in tears, we promise to bring you the best season yet. To the fans, our crew, families, Chuck Lorre, Warner Brothers, CBS, and everyone who has supported us for so many years, thank you. We are going out with a bang."
