The fan favorite series may be off the air, but its footage will continue its legacy at Warner Bros Studios in Burbank, California.
The studio added the set of The Big Bang Theory to its tour where fans can visit and see where their favorite scenes were filmed. The set includes Leonard and Sheldon’s apartment, the broken elevator and the lunchroom.
And guess what? The elevator is still broken!
During an exclusive visit on the set before it opened to the public, a few of the cast and crew members made an appearance to discuss their time on the show. The stars included Wil Wheaton (Wil), Brian Thomas Smith (Zack), and executive producers Steve Holland, Steven Molaro and Chuck Lorre. They discussed the wonderful memories they shared on set as well as how successful the show became in the blink of an eye.
On the panel, Lorre said that he didn’t expect the show to become a hit so quickly. Only 17 episodes had aired when the cast and crew attended the Comic Con stage- little did they realize that a legend was just made.
“I told the cast before they went out on the stage, ‘Don’t feel bad if nobody’s there.’ It was wall-to-wall people,” Lorre said. “And [the cast members] were greeted like the Beatles. Something extraordinary was happening and it was really apparent right then.”
The actors also discussed some of their favorite moments. For Smith, it was when his character got to go to the comic book store in the Justice League recombination episode. This was a big moment for Smith because Zack was able to shine with the others.
“I was there with the four main guys hanging out with the dudes looking at comics and I kind of felt like part of the gang,” Smith said. “Then we get dressed up and go to a costume contest and I think Zack has never felt included with the gang as that episode. So that was a very special moment.”
Now all the fans can relive these special moments by attending the tour and reminiscing their favorite moments.
