19. The Big Bang Theory

The series finale for The Big Bang Theory took place just this week, meaning the entire series will soon be available to stream, but not on Netflix, unfortunately. Before we dive into the reason why the longtime running sitcom isn’t available on Netflix, let’s chat about what the comedy is even about.

The Big Bang Theory premiered just over 10 years ago on September 2017 on CBS. It stars Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco, and others. The comedy didn’t immediately click with audiences when it first aired, but it wasn’t long before viewers began to fall in love with the characters and the fun chemistry they shared with one another.

Initially, The Big Bang Theory only followed roomies Sheldon Cooper and Leonard Hofstadter, physicists at Caltech. Soon enough, due to their popularity and connection with audiences, supporting characters were promoted to starring roles.

By season 4, ratings climbed and now seven seasons of the show rank in the top ten TV rankings. The series has been nominated for many Emmys and Jim Parson has taken Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series four times.

In 2017, CBS debuted Young Sheldon, a spinoff-prequel to The Big Bang Theory. But as you may have already guessed, with CBS having its own streaming service, CBS All Access, there’s no way the network is sharing streaming rights with Netflix.
