With some big changes in store...
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, The Big Bang Theory showrunner Steve Molaro said that he's working under the assumption that the show will end with its tenth season in 2017. Here are highlights:
On the discussing of marriage for Leonard and Penny: "I think it's possible they could. We're enjoying shining a light on how many proposals there have been and how many there might be to come. As long as we own it, we'll be OK. In the last three episodes there is a lot of proposal discussion. Within all the characters, there will be at least one more proposal and there is also some discussion of potential living arrangements, but I'm going to be vague about the rest."
On the season seven finale: "It does end on something of a cliffhanger. The last three episodes, a lot of big moves happen. The final three episodes aren't necessarily building to a crescendo in the finale but there are big moves happening all over the place, including the finale. I'm pretty excited about it."
On if season is the end of the show: "You never know. I'm going to move forward along with [co-creator/EP] Chuck [Lorre] that 10 is the end unless we're told otherwise. These are decisions that are so far away I can't really even think about that. I have no choice but to move forward … it's so far away (laughs). The mindset is it's going to be the 10 and then we'll see what happens after that."
