Mayim Bialik has a few ideas in mind for the future of the “Big Bang Theory.”

In the latest installments of CBS’ hit series “The Big Bang Theory,” everyone’s favorite geeky couple—Sheldon and Amy—are on the rocks. Amy, played by Bialik, recently dumped her longtime beau Sheldon, and though he is trying to win her back, Bialik revealed she has some ideas for the pair if they stay split up.
“There’s kind of two sets of opinions on if Amy were to date--which way we should go,” Bialik told E! News. “Some people think we should go super hunky, really against type from what Sheldon is and from what we think of Amy, but part of me also feels like it's OK to keep it a little bit real in that someone like Amy probably would pursue someone—not that attractive people can't be intellectual—but pursue someone in her field, who generally speaking, might not be that concerned with appearance."
Bialik added with laughs, “I don’t think we will be seeing Ryan Gosling shirtless or really anyone shirtless. Everyone’s shirts tend to stay on in Amy’s world.”
And as far as her TV boyfriend is concerned, Bialik also has some ideas of who Sheldon (played by Jim Parsons) should end up with if he and Amy can’t work it out. One way to go, she noted, was to pair Sheldon with someone like Penny, who is married to Leonard on the show and is played by Kaley Cuoco.
“I don’t know who I would pick for Sheldon. I feel like on the one hand I would love something like the contrast of a Penny type. I think that would be really good for laughs and for comedy. But, as the person who plays Amy that would be hard too. I like that on our show we do show other female scientists besides Amy, and we show different kinds of female scientists.”
Bialik added that maybe someone like the female scientist character Bernadette, played by Melissa Rauch, would be a better fit.
“I think honestly that might be interesting to see Sheldon with more of a Bernadette type scientist.”
“The Big Bang Theory” airs Monday nights on CBS.
