THE Big Bang Theory fans have been left crushed after social media flooded with fake season 13 announcements.
The hit CBS sitcom came to an end in May last year after 12 seasons.
However a post for season 13 started doing the rounds this weekend on social media, getting fans all excited that Sheldon and Co could be making a comeback.
The cast looked glam in the picture, with season 13 written across the top and the show's logo at the bottom.
Sadly it's a case of 'fake news', as there are no plans for the show to return any time soon.
Discussing the red herring on Reddit, one fan wrote: "I wish this was real".
Another heartbroken fan replied: "Same here."
A third added: "Everyone knows this can’t be true, they stopped because [they] did not sign for a new season and since then the whole crew has moved on.”
Jim Parsons, who played Sheldon, was reportedly offered £30 million ($50 million) to remain on the show for a 13th and 14th season.
However the actor and a number of his co-stars were ready to bid farewell to the show after 12 years.
The series 12 finale saw Sheldon win the Nobel Prize alongside wife Amy (Mayim Bialik) where he thanked his friends for their support over the years.
Meanwhile Penny (Kaley Cuoco) and Leonard (Johnny Galecki) revealed they were expecting their first child together and Raj (Kunal Nayyar) got a date with Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Sarah Michelle Gellar in a cameo).
