SPOILER ALERT: Do not read ahead unless you want to know the fate of Sheldon and Amy’s relationship. 

They finally did it!

After more than five years of dating, “The Big Bang Theory’s” Shamy — as they were first dubbed by Penny — will finally consummate their relationship this season.

“The Big Bang Theory,” which tapes in front of a live studio audience, filmed the seismic scene tonight on Nov. 17, which is scheduled to air on Thursday, Dec. 17.

The upcoming episode features Sheldon (Jim Parsons) and Amy (Mayim Bialik) consummating their relationship for the first time, although they are currently broken up. No word on whether the couple is officially reunited — or just engaged in the act.

Though the episode doesn’t air for exactly one month, since the show’s live audience witnessed the momentous scene being taped on set and plot rumors will undoubtedly begin to swirl on social media, Variety can confirm that coitus is, in fact, coming.

“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,” said executive producer Steve Molaro.

The couple shared their first real, romantic kiss on Valentine’s Day in the episode “The Locomotive Manipulation,” which aired in 2014.

“The Big Bang Theory” airs Thursdays at 8:00 p.m. on CBS. Sheldon and Amy’s big moment will air on Dec. 17.

    So, The Force Awakens and the big “bang” at pretty much the same time.

    Finally! I am so sick of them toying with this couple, if they will or won’t get back together, that I almost stopped watching! I almost stopped caring! I almost wrote them off and if this is not true I most likely will. This is not 5th grade and they need to take a HUGE leap forward

  3. mark says:

    Wondering what the title of the episode will be. Big Bang Theory and Bazinga come to mind.

  4. irene says:

    Not a good idea. Add Frasier to the list that went downhill after Niles finally hooked up with Daphne.

  5. Gabe says:

    I wanna see them back together

  6. Bella Shannon says:

    NOOOOOOOO! I had it in my head for the series finale and not before. They would fade to black and all you would hear Sheldon say “Bazinga” and it would be all over! Why?????????

  7. Sherie says:

    We love the show and are excited that they will finally “do it”!!!!! About time!!!!!!

  8. ChrisM says:

    Hope they haven’t “jumped the shark”. Too many good shows have been ruined by couples finally getting together! “Cheers”, “Moonlighting”, “Castle” and even “Rhoda” was a disaster before the divorce that made Rhoda single again. Guess we’ll have to wait and see but I must admit I’m not enthusiastic about the prospect.

    • Luka Naglić says:

      But Shamy isn’t a central couple. Plus, they’ve been working towards this, little by little, for five years of actually being a couple.

    • Bella Shannon says:

      You’re probably right. They shouldn’t air the episode, scrap it and do something else.

  9. Finally says:

    Well, I hope it was worth the wait for both of ’em!
