Season 8 ended with a huge shocker as Shamy (Sheldon and Amy) broke up during the anniversary of their fifth date. Leonard and Penny were also headed off to Las Vegas to get married. Howard and Bernadette try to drop hints that Stuart should move out while Raj deals with his own romance problems with his new girlfriend Emily.
When the show returns in September, Movie News Guide floated some fan theories that a Shamy reconciliation may not be easy so Sheldon may have to sweat a bit as Amy finds a new love interest.
Showrunner Steve Molaro was open to the possibility and assured that fans will be seeing a lot of Amy in season 9.
"We don't know exactly where they are but after five years, I think the answer is in the question. They have been dating, this is the fifth anniversary of their first date, and she can't even get through a make-out session without him thinking about television, so I understand her frustration. At the same time, I understand his side, which is: How much faster do you think I can go with this? It's an interesting place for them to be; it seems very real and I think it's exciting that we're shaking things up," he said.
He also said that while they still have not finalized what will happen from one of television's most adorable couples, he is sure that Sheldon cares too much for Amy not to do anything about it.
Molaro said that the breakup will affect the dynamics of the group, and Penny and Leonard will also have to work through their relationship problems eventually. He did not say whether they will successfully get married in Vegas or not.
Another exciting storyline is Raj, whose lack of communication skills with women often gets him in trouble. After he declares to Emily that he loves her, Molaro said that Raj would have to rely on his own strength to make the decision that is right for him.
As for Howard and Bernadette, Molaro said that Howard will have a difficult time dealing with his mother's loss but most of his storyline will be dealing with building a "home" with his wife.
Season 9 Release date : 2015/07/15
