Admit it or not, somehow you guys got scared when the production was put on hold when the lead actors were having a contract dispute. But all is well now — Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, Johnny Galecki and Jim Parsons will earn a million per episode and Season 8 will air on Monday, Sept. 22, 2014. (Kindly take note of the changes in the schedule.) Read on to find out what to expect on “The Big Bang Theory” Season 8.
In Season 7, Raj (Kunal Nayyar) and Emily (Laura Spencer) started to date, Penny (Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting) and Leonard (Johnny Galecki) got engaged and Sheldon (Jim Parsons) was last seen in the train station, although it was unclear whether he went on in the train or not.
According to TV Line, Season 8 will pick up 45 days after Sheldon’s “head-clearing, cross-country excursion.” Showrunner Steve Molaro teased that Sheldon’s belongings were stolen. Leonard will go to Arizona to pick him up. However, that is not the worse part. Amy (Mayim Bialik) is angry!
“Amy’s not pissed at him for leaving, but she’s certainly not thrilled that when he ran into trouble he called Leonard instead of her,” stated Molaro in the TV Line report.
Leonard, on the other hand, will come to realize that money changes everything as Penny decides to put her acting career in the backseat and focus on being a pharmaceutical representative.
Molaro explained that this new career for Penny will open a new chapter for her, and it will certainly change the dynamic between her and Leonard as she is now earning well.
Stuart (Kevin Sussman) will be Howard’s (Simon Helberg) mom’s caretaker, while we will be seeing a lot of Raj and Emily.
Meanwhile, the showrunner revealed that a baby is not coming yet for Bernadette (Melissa Rauch) and Howard.
“We’re not in any rush to have a baby on the show,” ended Molaro.
