How Long Sheldon And Amy Will Keep Living Together On 'The Big Bang Theory,' According To The Show's Executive Producer

Sarah Field

It has taken Sheldon and Amy many years to engage in any kind of intimacy on The Big Bang Theory. They copulated for the first time last season, and last week, chose to move in together after Amy's apartment became uninhabitable. While it's already Season 10 for The Big Bang Theory, this is the first time the living arrangements in that Glendale apartment building have really changed. Even after Leonard and Penny got married, she kept her place across the hall, and most scenes involved the adjacent apartments and the hallway in between.

But as of last week, it's Sheldon and Amy who have taken up residence in Penny's pastel-colored bedroom, while the married couple are staying up late to enjoy their new freedom without the quirky theoretical physicist. In a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, executive producer Steven Molaro revealed that despite Amy's initial frustrations, the living arrangements won't be returning to normal anytime soon. Fans can expect several more episodes with "Shamy" as roommates, even inviting friends over for brunch.

"It begins as a five-week experiment on the show, so [it will last] at least for that long. But what's great is it also functions as a creative experiment for us on the writing side.

"The beauty of Sheldon and Amy is so much is new to them. Even small, simple things like having people over for brunch for the first time can be an adventure. Which, incidentally, is something we will be exploring."

"I think Raj does a good job of filling in the gaps Howard has in the husband department. So having him around and invested may be as helpful as it is weird."
"Sheldon likes living with Amy, a fact that will probably surprise him at the end of the five weeks, and one that, just guessing, might lead him to suggest it become a permanent arrangement."

"If the relationship between Sheldon and Amy hadn't worked, then I'd wager that this would be a poorer show. That dynamic forced it to become about something a bit more than 'nerds doing nerdy things', and for better or worse it prolonged its creative life."
