Multiple outlets speculate that the decision was made to end the show with the full cast in place to try and mush on without the gang is the core character.
The show also stars Kaley Cuoco, Johnny Galecki, Kunal Nayyar and Simon Helberg.
Reps for Parsons not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
