The nerds of Big Bang Theory have finally reached adulthood as Sheldon and Amy lost their virginities sooner than expected, Leonard and Penny will finally be married, Howard and Bernadette are planning to have children and Raj finally landed a steady girlfriend! Will this mean that the series is nearing its end?
The ninth season of “Big Bang Theory” has revealed that the main characters have finally landed their ultimate goals as normal people – in the relationship aspect, at least. It was revealed that Leonard and Penny are bound to marry, Howard and Bernadette may reconsider having kids, Raj is finally engaged in a serious relationship, and for the best part: Sheldon and Amy said bye-bye to their virginities! It’s like watching kids grow up!
According to Hollywood Reporter, the series’ showrunner, Steve Molaro, “Big Bang Theory” will not only bid adieu to Sheldon’s virginity, the tenth season may possibly be the last as well. When asked about this possibility, Molaro stated, “I think so. I can’t speak to the future or on behalf of the cast or where we’ll be then but it’s certainly possible that it could go past that.” He added, “The reality is that maybe season 10 is the ending point. The real answer is I don’t know and all I can do right now is go episode to episode and try to make each one the best that we can. There’s still so many episodes to go. Even if hypothetically season 10 was the end, I wouldn’t be focusing on that yet. That seems like something that would be dealt with way down the line.”
On the other hand, series co-creator, Chuck Lorre, also had something to say about the possible ending. He stated, “I never imagined nine [seasons] and here we are. I’m not going to presume to know how many years this has because it’s ridiculous for me to guess. It’s already gone beyond my wildest dreams so anything beyond this… as long as everybody is having a good time and we’re making a show we’re proud of… then it’s worth continuing.”
In other news, Independent reported that season nine of “Big Bang Theory” showcased the loss of Sheldon and Amy’s virginity during a “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” special episode. The monumental event for the couple kicked off when Amy hinted on how similarly nervous she felt when she was anticipating the latest Star Wars franchise.
In fact, Sheldon revealed that he enjoyed the sex more than he thought he would. This episode was the eleventh of Big Bang Theory season nine which aired last December 17 on CBS. However, this said episode will be available in the UK earlier in 2016.
