Fans of The Big Bang Theory cast have always wondered what their favorite actors are doing after the show concluded. With Kaley Couco's latest Hulu original series, Based on a True Story, it's time to catch up with the cast and see if they have any new projects coming out.

8 Kevin Sussman - Stuart Bloom

Stuart Bloom ( Kevin Sussman) is a comic book store owner whose place is the gang's frequent hangout spot. Stuart is often portrayed as socially awkward and lonely, as he struggles to connect with others. Despite this, he becomes a close friend of the gang and is often involved in their misadventures.

After The Big Bang Theory concluded in 2019, Sussman continued to work on various projects. He appeared in Little Fish alongside Olivia Cooke and Jack O'Connell. He also had a recurring role in the TV show, Utopia and appeared in an episode of The Goldbergs. Additionally, Sussman voiced several projects including

Star Trek: Lower Decks and Harley Quinn. He will soon appear in Apple TV+ Lessons in Chemistry as Walter.

7 Melissa Rauch — Bernadette Rostenkowski

Bernadette Rostenkowski ( Melissa Rauch) began her career as a server and Penny's coworker at The Cheesecake Factory, where she used her earnings to fund her graduate studies in microbiology. She's a bright, short-tempered, cutthroat, manipulative bully and an often ambitious young woman with a squeaky voice who can also be pleasant and friendly.

Bernadette is Howard's wife and best friend of Penny and Amy.

Rauch's work in the TV industry continues beyond The Big Bang Theory, with cameos in Robot Chicken, Animaniacs, and The Chicken Squad. She also co-starred in The Laundromat, a Netflix comedy-drama with Meryl Streep. Most recently, Rauch appeared in Night Court for 16 episodes and voiced Beth Bayani in an animated series, Firebuds for 8 episodes.

6 Kunal Nayyar — Rajesh Koothrapalli

Rajesh "Raj" Koothrapalli ( Kunal Nayyar

) works in the physics department at Caltech, investigating astroparticle physics, and is Howard Wolowitz's best friend. Raj is from an affluent Indian family and regularly speaks with his parents, Dr. and Mrs. Koothrappali, via webcam. Unlike his male friends, Raj has a lot of feminine interests, even though he can't speak to women for the first several seasons.

After the show finished, Nayyar continued to work in the television industry, appearing in shows such as Criminal: UK, Mira, Royal Detective, and Suspicion. Additionally, Trolls World Tour, Trolls Holiday in Harmony, and Tiny Diamond Goes Back to School

are among the productions he has voiced. His latest film, The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry, also gained recognition. Nayyar has three upcoming projects that are all set to be released in 2023.

5 Simon Helberg — Howard Wolowitz

Howard Wolowitz ( Simon Helberg) is a Caltech Department of Applied Physics aerospace engineer. Howard, unlike Sheldon, Leonard, and Raj, does not have a degree, and as a result, he is frequently mocked, particularly by Sheldon. Howard used to live with his overbearing, demeaning, and unseen mother until he marries Bernadette and becomes the first of the gang to marry.

Helberg returned to acting with a musical drama, Annette, after taking a break after The Big Bang Theory. Helberg also voices his younger self in the TV show's spin-off, Young Sheldon, alongside other original cast members. Helberg also starred as Nathan in As They Made Us, a drama written and directed by his former co-star Mayim Bialik. Most recently, Helberg made appearances in Poker Face and American Dad!

4 Mayim Bialik — Amy Farrah Fowler

Amy Farrah Fowler (Mayim Bialik) is a neuroscientist who studies addiction in primates and invertebrates, and she occasionally mentions addiction experiments.

She is Sheldon's love interest and, later, his wife. Penny and Bernadette are Amy's best friends. She is sweet and caring, yet she can also be stern and determined when necessary.

After the show concluded in 2019, Bialik starred in Call Me Kat and hosted several episodes of Jeopardy! following the death of Alex Trebek. Bialik has also appeared in several television episodes, including Little Tikes' STEM Jr., Vampirina, and The News Tank. Her newest project, The Inspector Chronicles, which is about a space traveler who can also travel through time, is now in development.

3 Kaley Cuoco — Penny

Penny (Kaley Cuoco) lives across the hall from Leonard and Sheldon. She is an aspiring actor who hails from a tiny town outside Omaha, Nebraska. Penny worked as a server and occasional bartender at the local Cheesecake Factory until season seven. She is kind-hearted and outgoing.

Cuoco's next project after The Big Bang Theory was The Flight Attendant, which earned her a Golden Globe nomination. She also voiced Harley Quinn in the two-season animated series of the same name. Other projects Couco took part in include

The Man From Toronto, Meet Cute, and most recently, a Hulu original series, Based on a True Story.

2 Johnny Galecki — Leonard Hofstadter

Sheldon's roommate and best friend, Leonard Hofstadter ( Johnny Galecki), is an experimental physicist with an IQ of 173. Unlike his equally nerdy friends, Leonard is interested in and skilled at forming bonds with others. Even though they can't stand each other, he acts as a brotherly figure to Sheldon. Leonard's true love is Penny, his across-the-hall neighbor, whom he pledges to marry the moment he sees her.

Following The Big Bang Theory, Johnny played David Healy in the television series The Conners. He has also appeared in many films, including Rings, A Dog's Journey, and The Master Cleanse.

1 Jim Parsons — Sheldon Cooper

Sheldon Cooper ( Jim Parsons) is a genius-level theoretical physicist at Caltech with an IQ of 187 and an eidetic memory. He has a fundamental lack of social skills, a shaky grasp of comedy, and a hard time discerning irony and sarcasm in others. Sheldon truly cares about his friends and family, despite his lack of social graces.

After the sitcom concluded in 2019, Parsons continued to work on voiceovers for Young Sheldon, a spin-off of The Big Bang Theory. Also, in Call Me Kat, Parsons served as executive producer alongside his on-screen wife, Mayim Bialik. Additionally, he frequently appeared in television shows like The Simpsons, Hollywood, and Pete The Cat and feature films like The Boys in the Band and Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile. Most recently, Parsons starred in Spoiler Alert, a comedy-drama, and will soon appear in Just by Looking at Him, which is now in pre-production.
