The Big Bang Theory director has warned fans not to expect an explosive “atomic bomb” ending.

Director Mark Cedrowski has revealed to Nellie Andreeva that even he isn’t quite sure exactly how the final season will wrap up. What he can say is that the ending will be left open and have the feeling that the character’s lives “will continue on.”

“I honestly don’t know that much,” Cedrowski told Deadline. “The final episode has not been written completely yet; it’s been outlined. I will say the one thing about how they’ve approached the whole season: When we learned that this was to be the last season … writers have approached it, not so much as the show is wrapping up and we’ll never see them again and the finality of it all. “

“It’s going to be the last episode and it’s going to end, but people’s lives still go on,” he added. “The characters will be giving the idea that their lives continue on. It’s not going to be an atomic bomb where things blow up and you never see anybody again.”

The final episode ever of The Big Bang Theory will air on CBS, May 15.
