The fourth season comes to a close with Sheldon drafting an all-new roommate agreement.

The series stars Johnny Galecki as Leonard, Jim Parsons as Sheldon, Kaley Cuoco as Penny, Simon Helberg as Wolowitz and Kunal Nayyar as Koothrappali.

Recurring cast members to appear in the season finale include Melissa Rauch as Bernadette, Mayim Bialik as Amy, Carol Ann Susi as Mrs. Wolowitz and Aarti Mann as Priya.

Guest stars for the finale include Brian George as Dr. Koothrappali and Alice Amter as Mrs. Koothrappali.
Over the course of the last season, Leonard has been dating Raj’s sister, Priya, who has proved to be nothing but consternation for Leonard’s roommate, Sheldon. Where Sheldon once trumped Leonard’s behaviour with rules from the once-binding “Roommate Agreement,” Priya unraveled its bonds, rending the long-winded list of rules inert.

In the episode, “The Roommate Transmogrification,” which airs Thursday, May 19 at 8pm ET, Raj squirrels his way into Leonard’s position as Sheldon’s roommate once Raj catches wind of his sister and Leonard indulging in a “Star Trek” bedroom fantasy.

When the “Standard-Examiner” spoke to actress Aarti Mann last week, she said that in the season finale, her character’s romantic relationship with Leonard finally comes to a head… and she’s not so sure of the result.

“I would love to come back and see where it goes with Leonard and Priya,” says Mann, “but no contracts have been signed. I think we'll know by June or July.”

Also in the season finale; Bernadette receives her Ph.D., making her hubby-to-be Wolowitz the only member of the gang without his doctorate.  While the finale marks the end of the show’s fourth season, the series has already been signed up for three more seasons, and will at least be around well into the year 2014.

Viewers may have noticed an influx of actresses on the series this season, which is mainly because of Kaley Cuoco’s horse riding accident that caused her to break her leg. Since the actress could no longer walk, her character Penny was only seen from the waist-up, and doing lots of “bartending” at her job at the Cheesecake Factory.

By the way, did you know that Penny’s last name has still never been revealed on the show?

Don’t forget, you can watch all of the CTV season finales online in the “Season Finale Screening Room.”
