When Emmy-nominated CBS sitcom "The Big Bang Theory" returns to CBS on September 20, fans are going to get to find out if Kaley Cuoco's character, Penny, really got together with Kunal Nayyar's character, Raj.
"Yeah, last season was crazy. I think the writers have a lot of explaining to do," Kaley told Access Hollywood at Comic-Con in San Diego over the weekend. "[Producer/Showrrunner] Bill Prady said all the questions that you have will be answered, so that's a good sign."
In the season finale of the hit comedy about a group of geeky eggheads and their delightful neighbor, Penny and Raj woke up in the same bed, and Kaley thinks that left little to interpretation.
"I think they did [get together], but I don't know, maybe that'll change," she said. "It seemed that way, but you know TV, you never know what can switch around. But I know it's going to cause some strife between her and the guys."
And it will also cause strife for poor Leonard, played by first time Lead Actor in a Comedy series Emmy nominee, Johnny Galecki, who continues to hold a candle for Penny.
"I don't think he's going to be very happy," Kaley added.
But could things get physical on Leonard's part.
"I don't know, because it's so hard to get mad at little Raj. Maybe he will," she nodded. "Maybe there'll be some punching."
Beyond hookups, producers previously revealed there will be a wedding this season, but it likely won't be Penny and Raj.
"I think it's gonna be Bernadette and Howard," Kaley said, referring to the characters played by Melissa Rauch and Simon Helberg. "I'm assuming, which would be great. Season 5 -- that sounds about right for a show to have a wedding. I think that would be lovely. And what a blast."
And it allows Kaley a few more episodes without undergoing any TV nuptials herself.
"No, that's OK," she said when Access pointed out that meant no wedding dress fittings for Penny. "We can wait a little longer."
