At the beginning of the season 9 finale, Penny makes a comment about who knew her second marriage would be to Leonard. Correct me if I'm wrong. But did they not have a Thanksgiving episode a few years back having her ex come and sign divorce papers? So the second wedding is truly her third?

(Flash back) before Leonard Hofstadter was Steven Yeun, Jim Parsons has not changed much in appearance might be fun to see Steven Yeun in a new episode but a flash back episode ? Or Garcia Penelope from (Criminal Minds) As Melissa Rauch aunt or sister they look alike. #bernadetterostenkowski #MelissaRauch #GarciaPenelope #BigBangTheory #CriminalMinds #CBS #Actress @sanctionedjohnnygalecki

Have just read that the whole cast except for Kunal (who is in London doing a play) will appear at the CBS presentation for ad buyers on Wed. May 18. Hopefully they will announce the extension of their contracts and the show for the rumored 3 more yrs.

It is good news if it is true that negotiations are in progress for 3 more years. This would then make BBT the longest running sitcom on TV with at least 300 episodes. As for this seasons finale it seems like it will disappoint again with no actual ceremony only a dinner segment and including a ridiculous scene with Howard getting pulled over for DUI and him Raj and Bernadette not at the dinner. However, I have read in THR that this could set the stage for next seasons premiere episode that will include the ceremony. This might be enough time to get Keith Carradine back and cast Penny's mother. Hope this comes to fruition

What was Penny's last name before she married? Do we get to see her Mother, sister, and the Brother who is jail? What happened to Sheldon's twin sister? Will we see more of Zack? (He's fun) What ever was, is happened to, with Amy's father? Any spin offs coming?

How come no Wyatt, Penny's Dad ? All the parents have never gotten together, or is something planned for Season 10.
Darryl Canada, 12:30 May 11 2016.
I find the dynamics of the show more engaging with a greater array of characters i.e. Zack, Leslie, Alex, Emily, Claire, extended family and various friends. Stuart and his dysfunctional life circumstances are usually very funny; Kevin Sussman's dry delivery and cynicism can be quite hilarious. Also, is Emily a psycho? What about her roommate? Conclusion of this story line could send a useful message about the necessity for caution when meeting strangers online. Just a few thoughts. Overall the show is quite good, but S09s quality is lower than previous seasons and I find I'm losing interest. It's coming across like Friends in too many respects. Personally, I think this is partly due to the fact that it's focusing too narrowly on the main characters interactions with each other. Just a few thoughts from a dedicated fan of the show.

3 more seasons ? NO WAY !!!!! Omg it's awesome !!!

I hope it does get renewed, but without Sheldon, maybe the could put in a home for gifted children and go visit him sometimes. the show would go on and still be very funny and warm without him. the rest of the cast could easily carry the show and it wouldn't be so obnoxious.

My 12 and 13 year old kids love the show. Still want to know who gets tener lol
