Her name will always be Hofstadter
Known as Penny Hofstadter (played by Kaley Cuoco) after her marriage to Leonard Hofstadter (Johnny Galecki), fans have never been told of her maiden name.
There is a reason why it has not been shared and it has been confirmed that fans will be left tormented forever and will never find out her maiden name.
The Big Bang Theory writer Steve Molaro revealed at WonderCon: “Eventually we got nervous and superstitious about giving her one.”
Molaro, alongside co-writer Tara Hernandez and executive producer Steve Holland, also revealed: “Her name will always be Hofstadter.”
With the show ending on May 16, fans will be left disappointed that they will never solve the conundrum.
One exasperated Twitter fan previously claimed: “If The Big Bang Theory doesn’t tell us what Penny’s maiden name is before the show ends, I’m rioting!”
Another added: “It still bothers me that the world doesn’t know what Penny from The Big Bang Theory’s maiden name is.”
Molero also revealed it would be “cool” if Jim Parsons, who plays Sheldon Cooper, was to join the cast of a future spin-off.
Penny star Kaley Cuoco has been vocal about the show’s ending, about how emotional it
