'The Big Bang Theory': Leonard Has a New Job -- Find Out What His New Role Is!

The Big Bang Theory Leonard and Penny

A “new and assertive” Leonard Hofstadter is here – and he’s got a new job!

As The Big Bang Theory’s final season winds down, change is in the air for our favorite geektastic crew. In Thursday’s all-new episode of the CBS comedy, Leonard (Johnny Galecki) was looking to shake things up in his role at the university. 

Frustrated with his current job, Leonard revealed to Sheldon (Jim Parsons) and Penny (Kaley Cuoco) that he was going to meet with President Siebert (Joshua Malina) and "demand" to be in charge of a new plasma project -- or else he was going to quit. 

"I can't move," a worried Penny exclaimed to Leonard, "I just bought a six-month membership to Soul Cycle!"

"I'm not loving my job right now, and this is something that would make me happy. Don't you want me to be happy?" Leonard asked his wife. "I know this seems scary, but I put together a strong proposal. It’s good for me. It’s good for the university. They’re going to give it to me!"

They didn't.

But have no fear, Big Bang fans! Leonard still returned triumphantly from his new job quest and he is officially the new "co-lead on a photon entanglement team" and very happy about it.

With just four new episodes left, we have a feeling this is the beginning of many new changes coming ahead for our Big Bang gang. (FYI, here's everything we know about the final season!)

The Big Bang Theory's final season airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
