"" plans a gay wedding, but there's a twist. CBS Entertainment Chairman Nina Tassler revealed that in the upcoming 12th season of the comedy series, Walden () and Alan () would fake a gay relationship as part of Walden's attempt to adopt a child.
"Walden is going to have a major health scare and it is going to give him a little bit of an existential crisis," Tassler told reporters at the TCA summer press tour after her executive session. "He wants to find a way to add more meaning to his life, so he decides he wants to adopt a child. In doing so, he starts the process and he realizes that it's very difficult, to adopt a child as a single, straight man. So, once and for all, he decides, 'I'm going to propose to Alan, we're going to get married and adopt a child as a gay couple.' "
