The Big Bang Theory Cast Performed an Unforgettable Final Flash Mob

As the final episodes of The Big Bang Theory premiere on CBS and the last weeks of season 12 arrive, both the cast and the fans have been preparing to say goodbye — but it hasn’t been easy. Thankfully, it looks like the cast has been aware of just how hard saying goodbye to a show as massive as this one really is, because the Big Bang Theory cast performed their final flash mob after wrapping earlier this week, and Kaley Cuoco shared the video of it with the world.

The TBBT cast has had a long-running tradition of performing surprise flash mobs in years past, so it wasn’t entirely unexpected that they would all come together after wrapping on filming one of the final episodes to bring some joy into the world. That said, this flash mob carried a bit more emotional weight because, of course, this is the last-ever TBBT cast flash mob that was performed on the TBBT set.

Cuoco posted multiple videos taken from different angles on Instagram on Wednesday. One of the posts actually includes multiple videos showing how the cast broke out into a choreographed dance to Backstreet Boys’ “Larger Than Life” that took them months to prepare. Cuoco posted a sentimental caption explaining how it all went down.

“Ok here it is! I give you (from many different angles!) our FINAL @bigbangtheory_cbs epic flash mob!” Cuoco wrote. “Our cast and crew surprised the writers, producers, and audience last night dancing to @backstreetboys Larger than Life (a song that thanks the fans).”

Cuoco went on to give her thanks to the folks that made it happen, writing, “Thank you @bricuoco @mandykorpinen @elizabethpetrin for choreographing this epic dance and for my crew who rehearsed for months and listened to me yap on and on about this endlessly! 🤪 it was worth it. enjoy!!! #thefinalseason (PS @sanctionedjohnnygalecki hurt his ankle but he was cheering us on from the sides!).”

Aaand now we’re all kinds of verklempt!

In addition to a handful of posts dedicated to showing fans the flash mob from every possible angle, Cuoco posted a sweet video showing TBBT creator Chuck Lorre on FaceTime watching the cast perform for a final time.

“Yes. Chuck Lorre was on location and didn’t wanna miss our flash mob, so he FaceTimed in to watch us dance. no words,” she wrote, going on to alert fans that more videos like these would be coming soon: “Beware lots of #bts and teary vids to come during last remaining shows of #BBT.”

With TBBT set to officially end in May on CBS, its moments like these that make being a fan of the show a bittersweet affair. We’re in awe of the flash mob this cast put together and, if anything, it’s a testament to how close they are that they were able to seamlessly pull it off.
