The Big Bang Theory (CBS)
Premieres: Monday, Sept. 22 at 8/7c
Where We Left Off: Penny and Leonard got engaged and are planning to live together, which shook up Sheldon's world. After he's unable to change his field of study and the comic book store burned down, Sheldon left town on a train after sharing his first kiss with Amy. Raj and Emily had sex, while Stuart ended up as Mrs. Wolowitz's caretaker.
What's Next: Sheldon's whereabouts will be revealed in the season premiere. When he'll return is being kept under wraps, but don't worry about him and Amy. "I would argue that they do have their own weird brand of happiness right now. That kiss on the train is pretty indicative of that," executive producer Steve Molaro says. Stuart will still be Mrs. Wolowitz's caretaker, while Penny will leave acting behind to be a salesperson at Bernadette's company, which causes problems between her and Leonard. But don't expect a Save the Date any time soon. "Penny's first goal is to put the date far enough in the future so everyone knows she's not pregnant," Molaro says. Regina King will also return as Janine Davis, and yes, there will be a new comic book store!
