Since The Big Bang Theory tapes in front of a live studio audience, CBS knew that the story of two of the main cast members finally consummating their relationship was too big of a secret to keep. To head off the news breaking through audience members, CBS decided to go ahead and officially announce that Amy and Sheldon Cooper will be having sex. Executive producer Steve Molaro released the following statement.
After over five years of dating, we felt the time was right for Sheldon and Amy to finally consummate their relationship. And we’re so excited for the audience to see the journey over the next several episodes.
The episode where Amy and Sheldon consummate their relationship will air on December 17, 2015. Of course, current viewers of the series will know that Amy and Sheldon are presently broken up. Given this announcement, we can only assume that some form of reconciliation is on the way.
The Big Bang Theory airs on Thursday nights at 8 PM ET on CBS.
