‘The Big Bang Theory’ Producer Explains Sheldon & Amy’s Upcoming Big Decision (SPOILERS)

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.
