Kaley Cuoco Has Just One Wish for The Big Bang Theory’s Final Season
The Big Bang Theory is headed into its 12th and final season this fall, and while fans undoubtedly have a lot of hopes and opinions about what should happen on the show, series star Kaley Cuoco’s wish is simple: She wants the elevator in the fictional building where her character lives to finally, finally be repaired.
“I would like the elevator to get fixed,” she joked on The Late Late Show With James Corden. “Simple request, right?”
The elevator in question has been broken since the sitcom’s pilot way back in 2007. Leonard and Sheldon destroyed it during an experiment-gone-wrong with rocket fuel, so they and the rest of their friends, including Penny (Cuoco), have had to use the stairs instead.
“The stairs have gotten more and more exhausting as our seasons have gone on,” Cuoco quipped to Corden. “Season 1 and 2 we were running up there. And now it’s season 12, we’re all a little bit older, [it’s] a little more difficult getting up those steps. So I’d like the elevator to work.”
On a more serious note, the actress opened up about the heartbreak she and the rest of the cast felt when they learned the show was ending.
“It was definitely tough. There was not a dry eye in the room. A lot of hysterical sobs,” she shared. “I think I wrote this on my social, it wouldn’t have mattered when it ended, we all would’ve been completely devastated.”
That said, the show has had a long run, and Cuoco and her costars are “very grateful” for the years they did have together. “It’s time to, I guess, move on to other things, which is so heartbreaking, you know? But it would’ve been heartbreaking no matter when.”
The final season of The Big Bang Theory will premiere on September 24 at 8pm ET/PT on CBS.

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
