Just two more days to go before the big season eight premiere of "The Big Bang Theory," and although spoilers have given fans an idea on the plot of the upcoming season, curiosity is still high.

Questions on how changes in their lives will affect the relationships of Penny, Leonard, Sheldon and Amy are also plenty.

It has already been established that Kaley Cuoco's character of Penny will change her career and start a very lucrative job as a sales representative in Bernadette's pharmaceutical company. This change in career is going to give her the much-needed boost to her morale, and make Penny confident in her relationship with Leonard.

And because Penny is going to earn more than Leonard, this brings a change in the dynamics of their relationship, which is expected to cause some friction between them. But the pressing question is if this will ultimately cause the newly engaged couple to go their separate ways.

As reported, "The Big Bang Theory" showrunner Steven Molaro told TVLine in an earlier interview that it's unlikely the recently-engaged couple will walk down the aisle in the upcoming season.

"I can't say for sure, but I doubt it," he shared. "They're in a great place. They're the kind of couple where they can be engaged for a while and that's fine."

"In the first episode back [on Sept. 22], she will embark on a brand new career, and that will be taking up a lot of her time and energy," reveals the EP. "Bernadette has helped to get her a job as a pharmaceutical sales rep at her company. She is going to put her failed acting career on the backburner for a while."

As for Amy and Sheldon, the first episode will see Sheldon robbed during his road trip, and he calls Leonard and not his girlfriend to help him out. "That hurts her feelings," Molaro told TVGuide.

"The good news is that it's a conversation that is had and addressed in a fairly sweet moment."
The showrunner also hinted that the Amy-Sheldon relationship will grow deeper, albeit in a slow manner.

Season eight of "The Big Bang Theory" airs on 22 September on CBS.
