The Big Bang Theory left us with quite a cliffhanger last season. Will Sheldon and Leonard’s mom and dad hook up before the wedding? Are these two physicists destined to be more than just roommates? Chuck Lorre wastes no time answering that question, as the premiere episode picks up exactly where we left off. Sheldon is concerned Leonard’s father is doing unspeakable things to his mother, no matter how many times Penny assures him people their parents’ age probably finished doing the deed hours ago.
Who’s going to steal Penny (Kaley Cuoco) and Leonard’s (Johnny Galecki) thunder when The Big Bang Theory returns?

As The Big Bang Theory enters season 10, the focus has turned to the show’s future. Is the hit CBS sitcom and recent Poppy Award winner approaching the finish line or are there enough jokes to make about nerds to fill another season? For series star Kaley Cuoco, the question of an eleventh season comes down to one thing: money.
“It’s a very expensive question for a lot of people,” said Cuoco on Jimmy Kimmel Live Monday.
The Big Bang Theory’s return will be a family affair
In the season 10 premiere, Leonard (Johnny Galecki) and Penny (Kaley Cuoco) plan to renew their vows, which is made all the more difficult by the fact that Leonard’s dad (Judd Hirsch) may have slept with Sheldon’s (Jim Parsons) mom (Laurie Metcalf).
But Penny will have family drama of her own when her mother (Katey Sagal) and drug addict brother (Jack McBrayer) make their debut — and EW has the exclusive first look at the wedding family photo!
The Big Bang Theory’s slowest moving couple will be taking the next step in season 10.
After finally consummating their relationship last season, Amy (Mayim Bialik) and Sheldon (Jim Parsons) are on the way to cohabitation. “There are some big experiments in store for them and their relationship,” EP Steve Molaro tells EW, stressing that Amy and Sheldon living together is just an experiment for now. “A good way to trick Sheldon into doing things is by framing it in terms of science.”
With The Big Bang Theory heading into its 10th season — and contract negotiations for the cast looming — the big question is whether the juggernaut comedy will be back for more.
“We are very confident that everyone involved wants more Big Bang past year 10,” CBS chief Glenn Geller told reporters at the Television Critics Association’s press tour on Wednesday. “I know Warner Bros will make those deals.”
Breaking Bad star Dean Norris has landed a multi-episode arc on The Big Bang Theory, EW has learned exclusively.
Norris will play Captain Williams, a tough Air Force representative from the Department of Materiel Command, who’s interested in the boys’ quantum gyroscope for military applications.
The Big Bang Theory is one of the most popular and longest-running sitcoms on television right now, so star Simon Helberg is undoubtedly glad he didn’t follow his instincts to pass on the show back in 2007. Helberg stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to talk about what was almost a huge mistake for his career.
Katey Sagal has been tapped to play Penny’s mom Susan, while Jack McBrayer will portray her brother Randall on the new season of The Big Bang Theory, executive producer Steve Molaro revealed at the show’s Comic-Con panel on Friday.
“We are finally going to meet more of Penny’s family,” Molaro said. “We’re going to be meeting Penny’s mom and her brother in the first episode back. We’re super excited that Katey Sagal will be playing Penny’s mom.”
