"The Big Bang Theory" engagement undoubtedly shocked many fans who have followed Leonard and Penny's love story which has been filled with several proposals and multiple break ups and make ups. After many failed attempts at getting hitched, "The Big Bang Theory" engagement is now the buzz of the web because with just one episode left of the season, there are still plenty of unanswered questions. As explained by TV.com Friday, after years of dating, Penny and Leonard have finally taken the next step in their relationship although it was one of the most awkward engagements in TV history.

"The Gorilla Dissolution" focused evenly on three pairings - Howard and Bernadette, Leonard and Penny, and Sheldon and Raj. Some savvy fans may have figured that an engagement was in the works after Penny lost her acting gig and was forced to reconsider her life choices.

"The Big Bang Theory," a television series that impressed in its debut a few years ago was expected to be a hit but no one could have imagined the success that it is generating along with the show's millions of fans. But there is sad news for fans of the show, "The Big Bang Theory" engagement follows comments made by producer Steve Molaro that are raising doubts about the continuity of the series beyond the ten scheduled seasons.

"The Big Bang Theory," which is about a group of friends who are science geeks, was recently commissioned for three more seasons. Actor Jim Parsons, who plays the character of a scientific genius with questionable social skills, has already won three Emmy Awards for his role as Dr Sheldon Cooper and the show has won a total of four Emmy awards.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, the producer of the popular CBS series, Steve Molaro, said..."You never know. I'm going to move forward along with [co-creator/EP] Chuck [Lorre] that 10 is the end unless we're told otherwise. These are decisions that are so far away I can't really even think about that. I have no choice but to move forward … it's so far away (laughs). The mindset is it's going to be the 10 and then we'll see what happens after that."

He added that he would be "okay" with the show ending in 2017, and that even though there was no official end date as of yet, it was all about knowing when to quit the show.

He continued with the interview saying..."I would be OK, yes, as long as we do it right. My concern is that we do it right and we end this show in a way that is as befitting of these characters that we respect and love. As long as we can have the opportunity to end it in a way that serves them all properly, that's my concern -- more than the number of seasons."

When asked whether the fact that many of the core cast don't have new contracts factor into the decision to end the season on a cliffhanger, he said...."Not at all. We're making the best episodes that we can come up with. I have to move forward assuming everyone is going to be there. I have no reason to think they won't be. That wasn't a factor."
