A Lot Evolves Around Penny
San Diego Comic-Con has just drawn to a close and the executive producer of The Big Bang Theory was one of the many people to have attended the panel. Surprisingly he revealed some big news regarding the tenth (and final?) season of the hit CBS show. There are five main points to break down, including new family members being introduced and an exciting road trip for two characters. Steven Molaro has also spoke about the possibility of the show ending as the main stars' (incredibly high-paid) contracts are rapidly coming to an end.
1. Fans Will Meet Penny's Mother
As previously reported, fans will be introduced to Penny's mother for the very first time in the show. The actress Katey Sagal from 8 Simple Rules has been confirmed by Molaro. It has also finally been confirmed that we will meet Penny's mother in the very first episode of Season 10 on Monday, September 19th. But, will this be the first and last time we meet Penny's mother?
"We are finally going to meet more of Penny's family. 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" — Steven Molaro
2. Fans Will Also Meet Penny's Brother As Well As Her Mother
The actor Jack McBrayer has been officially confirmed by the show bosses to play Penny's hidden away brother. Not only have we been given exclusive details about him, we've also been told that his name is Randal. Just Randal. No surname as the show bosses (frustratingly) won't tell us their surnames.
"He's a drug dealer and he has just gotten out of prison. We needed to find the right person to get for this. I think we did a pretty good job on the casting. He's a little scary." — Steven Molaro
3. Is The Show Ending After Season 10 Or Not?
During the San Diego Comic-Con, a fan queried Steven Molaro on the potential future of the show. Steven Molaro has admitted to the public that it is too soon to be talking or even thinking about it. We all know that everyone's contracts are coming to an end next year. However, it is left confidential if the contracts are to be renewed. But, the main stars of the show including Jim Parsons and Kaley Cuoco have said they're keen to take on an eleventh season.
"I'm not gonna tell you. There's been a few thoughts that have floated around, but we don't really know how long the show's going to go on for, so I think it's a little early for us to be thinking about an end point." — Steven Molaro
Do You Want The Show To End After Season 10?
4. 'Fun With Flags' Is Getting Better!
Buckle up as "Fun With Flags," hosted by Sheldon and Amy, is taking a road trip in Season 10 of the show. Steven Molaro has confirmed to the public that Sheldon and Amy will go to what we know is a real-life flag convention. Imagine the excitement and happiness on Sheldon's face. "Fun With Flags" has had an amazing history. Guest stars have been on Sheldon's YouTube show, which he then emotionally ended. However, he realized that his YouTube fans loved the show and wanted it back. So that's what he did!
5. Penny's Career Will Go The Next Level Up
In Season 10 of The Big Bang Theory, Penny's career will be addressed to fans even more as a sales representative. We all know that Penny is an aspiring actress who then suddenly changed her profession back in Season 8. She is currently earning a lot of money, but she isn't actually enjoying her job as a sales representative.
"We're still figuring things out; I think she's in an interesting and relatable place. She's going to start to weigh her options."
So as you can see, the main focus of Season 10 is looking like it's all about Penny. But let's not forget that Bernadette and Howard are expecting their baby very soon. Molaro has said he doesn't want to rush into it and wants it to be as realistic as possible.
