CBS has released its 2016 fall schedule, which means viewers can plan accordingly when to tune in to their favorite shows — like “The Big Bang Theory.”
According to TVLine, audiences will want to make sure they’re sitting in their favorite spot on the couch Monday, Sept. 19, when the hit comedy series airs its Season 10 premiere. “The Big Bang Theory” will then return to its regular post-football lineup on Thursday, Oct. 27.
When the long-running series comes back for its 10th go-around, fans will get to find out if Leonard’s (Johnny Galecki) father Alfred (Judd Hirsch) and Sheldon’s (Jim Parsons) mother Mary (Laurie Metcaf) hooked up in the Season 9 finale.
“I know they were getting along quite well, and left to go to the same hotel for a nightcap, and turned off their phones. The details of exactly what happened, if we even ever find out all the details, will be left for the season premiere of Season 10,” executive producer Steve Molaro teased during an interview with Entertainment Weekly.
But that wasn’t the only cliffhanger that the Season 9 finale of “Big Bang Theory” left audiences with. Viewers were also waiting for Leonard and Penny (Kaley Cuoco) to exchange vows (a second time) and anticipating the arrival of Wolowitz (Simon Helberg) and Bernadette’s (Melissa Rauch) baby. Although fans will have to wait until the fall to find out what’s next for their favorite scientists, Molaro did promise audiences one thing: Amy and Sheldon won’t catch wedding fever just yet.
“I do not see any Sheldon and Amy (Mayim Bialik) surprise wedding in the near future," Molaro told the Hollywood Reporter.
But just because a Cooper-Fowler wedding isn’t in the Season 10 cards doesn’t mean it’s out of the question! Molaro revealed to Entertainment Weekly that “Big Bang Theory” has no incentive to wrap up after its 10th season, giving fans plently of time for a potential phsyics-themed wedding.
“The Big Bang Theory” will air its Season 10 premiere on Monday, Sept. 19, at 8 p.m. EDT on CBS before returning to its regular air time on Thursday, Oct. 17, at 8 p.m. EDT.
