The Big Bang Theory narrated a vast number of stories over its 12-season run, featuring many characters that became memorable for the sitcom's fans. However, some vanished without a trace, leaving fans wondering what happened to them.
The Big Bang Theory is regarded as one of the most successful sitcoms in recent decades on television. Created by Chuck Lorre and premiered in late 2007, it aired for twelve seasons until its conclusion in May 2019 on CBS. Over its long career, it earned critical acclaim and immense support from legions of fans worldwide. With so many memorable characters, it seems odd that some stories inexplicably disappeared.
The series starred Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg, Kunal Nayyar, Mayim Bialik, Melissa Rauch, and Johnny Galecki, portraying a group of friends named Sheldon Cooper, Penny, Howard, Raj, Amy, Bernadette, and Leonard respectively. With each of their antics, they gifted viewers many happy moments in the 279 episodes that aired.
The sitcom may have been one of the most successful in all that time, but The Big Bang Theory reached its end without explaining the sudden absence of two characters who were significant in some of the stories told on the show, specifically involving Rajesh Koothrappali. These characters simply disappeared from the program without any explanation.
The Big Bang Theory fans got to know Raj, a shy astrophysicist who had serious difficulties interacting with the opposite sex, except when he was under the influence of alcohol. Although most of his screen time was spent as a women repellant due to his extreme shyness, there was an episode where a woman became interested in him.
Who are the characters from The Big Bang Theory that vanished from the sitcom without any explanation?
One of these women was Issabella Maria Concepción (Maria Canals-Barrera), who worked at the same University as Raj. The two had an interesting encounter on a date during episode 8 of season 10 of The Big Bang Theory, titled “The Brain Bowl Incubation”. Despite Issabella being crucial to Kunal Nayyar's character's storyline, she was never mentioned again, and the show didn't drop any further hints. Another character The Big Bang Theory stopped mentioning was Cinnamon, the little Yorkshire Terrier that was the light of Raj's life. A pet he constantly spoiled with treats and gave an extravagant lifestyle and all the repressed love and affection he so desperately wanted to pour out on a girlfriend.
The Big Bang Theory was one of the most popular series in the history of television, with 12 complete seasons on air, totaling 279 episodes. Undoubtedly, it would require secondary characters to flesh out each story, and while it may seem strange that some endings have no explanation, it's something necessary to continue with what works best.
