Season nine for The Big Bang Theory will open with Leonard and Penny getting married in Las Vegas, but that doesn’t mean it’ll be smooth sailing for the couple.
According to the Inquisitr, this season is all about moving on and taking relationships to new levels, Star Wars tie-ins, and fans will find out whether or not Sheldon and Amy have a future.
Show creator Steve Molaro dished on what to expect this year, according to ABC News.
“It’s season nine and Leonard has been pursuing her since minute three of the series,” he told the magazine. “Even Penny, with all of her commitment issues, is in a mindset of, ‘Are we moving forward with this or not? What are we doing?’ And they do.”
In addition to overcoming their own issues, they must also deal with their living arrangements and what to do about Sheldon.
“Living arrangements are definitely going to be confronted in the first four episodes. It’s tricky, sure — Leonard and Penny need to move forward, but at the same time we have a broken-hearted Sheldon (Jim Parsons), who is sort of their little brother and child and it’s tough to ignore that for them,” he added.
The Hollywood Reporter says the team toyed with the idea of waiting until further in the season to show the wedding, but they thought it sent the wrong message to fans.
“Chuck and I had a long talk about [revealing the wedding before the premiere] and my fear was that it was going to start [sounding] like they didn’t [get married],” Molaro tells The Hollywood Reporter. “That was not a positive message — and we didn’t want fans to feel like, ‘Oh, they’re going to pull the rug again and not do it.’ There is so much more story beyond that moment that we decided to just let people know.”
As the season goes on, viewers will find out that they haven’t seen the last of Leonard’s deep sea conquest.
