NO. Some of your favourite TV shows are coming to an end in 2019.

It’s not unusual to become attached to a television show.

As each season comes to an end, you close your laptop and begin counting down the days until the next season.

Until… you don’t.

A show ending can be as bad as a breakup. You’re losing some of your closest friends, after all. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

With that in mind… brace yourself and grab a tub of ice cream.

Here are all your favourite shows ending in 2019.

The Big Bang Theory.

It all started with a big bang, and ended with a... small sob.

279 episodes after beginning, The Big Bang Theory will be coming to an end in 2019, with the last ever episode airing in May.

The executive producer of the series, Chuck Lorre, was considering a thirteenth season, but has decided that they will bring the show to a “epic creative close” this year instead.

“We are forever grateful to our fans for their support of The Big Bang Theory during the past 12 seasons,” he said.

Game of Thrones.

Game of Thrones is the television show that quickly became a hit worldwide.

Based on the novels by George R. R. Martin, the show is rich with the royal sort of drama you can only find in fantasy series.

The final season will consist of six episodes, and is very anticipated.

The trailer teases a fiery war waging between fire and ice as a dragon and direwolf are consumed by ice, while a lion on the other end of the table is engulfed in flames.

One thing is for sure – a big, big battle is brewing between the Night King, the Lannisters, the North and Daenerys Targaryen.

Watch the trailer for Game of Thrones Season Six below. Post continues after video. 

According to Esquire, Vladimir Furdik, the actor who plays the Night King, shared that the final season is set to break television history.

“In the third part of the last season, there is a battle that the creators intend to be the biggest in television history,” the actor said.

“Almost the full episode will be about the battle, it will take about an hour.”

Yikes.

Broad City.

Broad City is coming to an end, with the fifth season airing in early 2019.

It's the show about two female friends living in New York. Except... it's so much more than that.

It’s crude and it’s feminist, and unlike any other show in the genre.

According to Rolling Stone, Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson have signed a first-look deal with Comedy Central’s parent company, Viacom, meaning we can prepare ourselves for some fresh content from the duo.

We will miss it a lot.

Orange Is the New Black.

Imagine 15 months in a minimum-security women’s prison... with your drug-smuggling ex-girlfriend.

The seventh season of the Netflix Original Orange is The New Black will be the final of the award-winning series.

Following 91 episodes, we will have to say goodbye to the funny and diverse show that women around the world admittedly binge-watched.

Grab your homemade shiv and cry your way through the final season.

Veep will be coming to a very sad end in 2019 as we enjoy the seventh season of the show.

The political satire follows the female vice-president of the United States, played by Julia Louis-Dreyfus, as she climbs her way up the political ladder, with her eyes on the Oval Office prize.

It's incredibly captivating and... everyone swears a lot.

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is the type of easy watching you desperately crave on a bad news day, but it's sadly coming to an end after four seasons.

It's hilarious and unbelievable, yet you find yourself completely in love with the naive protagonist, who has been living underground for fifteen years.

The show, which is produced by Tina Fey, is about Kimmy (Ellie Kemper who you might recognise from The Office) who escapes a cult after the leader (played by Mad Men‘s Jon Hamm), convinces her and three other women that the apocalypse has arrived.

She is a simple gal who has been stuck in an underground doomsday cult bunker for 15 years, and yet she brings a big smile to the party.

It’s brilliant, funny, and everything you could hope for in a rom-com-drama.

Jane the Virgin.

Jane the Virgin is coming to an end in 2019 after five brilliant seasons.

As the title implies, Jane is a... virgin. So when she finds herself pregnant she is more confused than Joseph and Mary.

When she realises she has mistakenly been inseminated by a semen specimen during a routine pap smear, the 23-year-old student decides to keep the baby.

Then she finds out the sperm donor is her... boss.

It's hilarious and heart-warming.

Transparent.

Transparent follows a Los Angeles family after they realise their father is a trans woman.

It's funny and it's honest, but the show was inevitably tainted by allegations against Jeffrey Tambor, who played the main character Maura Pfefferman. In 2018, it was announced the 74-year-old actor would have no further role on the show.

The fifth season on Stan will be the final airing of the show, and will be released in 2019.

Homeland.

Homeland is thrilling and intelligent, and will dearly missed by all its fans.

The television series will be finishing in 2019 with the eighth season.

Elementary.

This year Elementary is coming to an end.

Set in New York City, the drama is a modern day interpretation of the Sherlock Holmes novels.

The show is ending after its seventh season airs in late 2019.

The show will end after its fourth season in 2019... but will the pair end up together?
