Big Bang Theory had a good run on CBS with 12 series and the show sadly came to an end in the summer of 2019. Although rumours of a new series have been officially put to bed by the creators, fans are hoping one of the underrated characters will get his own series. Stuart Bloom owned the comic book store the gang always used to visit and over the series he became a full-time cast member.
In the series, Stuart Bloom runs the Comic Center of Pasadena, the comic book store which features prominently throughout.
Stuart is friends with the main characters, including Sheldon (played by Jim Parsons) and the gang regularly visit him to grab the latest comics.
He first appears in season two of The Big Bang Theory and becomes known for his extensive knowledge of the comic book world.
Stuart acts as a safety net for his friend Raj and the pair start to become good friends in season six, substituting for Howard (Simon Helberg) when he leaves to go to space.

During season six his character was added to the main cast and he was credited at the beginning of each episode, up until episode 16.
He then went back to having a recurring role until the start of the eighth series, when he appeared almost as many times as main character Amy (Mayim Bialik).
Fans have fallen in love with Stuart as he is always willing to help others and he is a kind soul, but many feel sorry for him as he is overworked and underpaid.
His work means he is not able to get out as much as his friends, and often feels stuck in a rut, struggling with depression.
