Shamy fans rejoice! Jim Parsons and Mayim Bialik will reprise their roles from The Big Bang Theory, Sheldon Lee Cooper, and Dr. Amy Farrah Fowler, respectively, for the series finale of the Young Sheldon prequel series! Think again if we can share details about the couple’s reunion! The powers that be are keeping that business under wraps. Will they feature in a time skip? Does Young Sheldon (Iain Armitage) invent a time machine? The mystery remains.

The couple last appeared in the May 2019 series finale of The Big Bang Theory, which included a surprisingly emotional moment of self-reflection by Parsons’ Sheldon Cooper during a Nobel Prize acceptance speech. While Young Sheldon is beloved by Big Bang Theory fans, a reunion with Sheldon and Amy will surely gain significant attention for the forthcoming finale.

Iain Armitage stars in Young Sheldon as an adolescent version of Sheldon Lee Cooper, the neurotic genius who became the spokes-character of The Big Bang TheoryYoung Sheldon focuses on the child prodigy’s ’80s and ’90s upbringing in East Texas. Parsons narrated for the Young Sheldon series and brought the prequel spin-off to Big Bang producers before the show’s launch.

Young Sheldon‘s seventh and final season is currently on the air, with a back-to-back episode finale scheduled for May 16.

While Young Sheldon ends this May, a spin-off series centered on Georgie (Montana Jordan) and Mandy (Emily Osment) is coming to CBS. The untitled spin-off finds Georgie and Mandy “navigating the challenges of adulthood, parenting, and marriage.” 

“From The Big Bang Theory to Young Sheldon the world of the Cooper family has been incredibly special to us. We’re very excited to continue their stories through the eyes of Georgie and Mandy,” said producers Chuck Lorre, Steven Molaro, and Steve Holland in a joint statement.

Are you excited about Jim Parsons and Mayim Bialik reprising their iconic Big Bang roles for the Young Sheldon series finale? Will you tune in for the Georgie and Mandy spin-off series? Will Big Bang be the series that keeps giving for years to come? More than it already has, I suppose. Let us know in the comments section below.
