    Jim Parsons’s return as Sheldon Cooper for the ‘Young Sheldon’ finale is suddenly a pleasant surprise for the fans of the show. Based on ‘The Big Bang Theory‘ character Sheldon Cooper’s earlier years, ‘Young Sheldon‘ is set to conclude seven seasons. To give a fitting end to the show, Parsons will reprise his role on the show one last time.

    While the actor earlier said the experience of playing Sheldon Cooper was a bit weird for him, he has now stated that it has been a meaningful experience for the actor. Though his initial hesitancy made him doubtful about revisiting the character, Parsons said the way the finale was written culminated in a beautiful and fitting end to Sheldon’s character.

    Parsons, who is also an executive producer and the narrator for ‘Young Sheldon, said, “I felt a slight hesitancy when they first asked, just as I thought, I don’t really want to go revisit the character.”

    But the way that they wrote it in was I thought so beautiful that it ended up being like this little extra coda or whatever to my experience with the character,” he added while speaking to People.  “It was this gift of a second layer of losing it out in a way that I had never seen coming, and it was a real treat,” he added.

    Mayim Bialik, who played Amy Farah Fowler on ‘The Big Bang Theory‘, was also featured in the last episode alongside Parsons.

    Jim Parsons was also asked if he has any advice for Iain Armitage who played the role of a younger version of his character Sheldon Cooper. In response, Parsons expressed admiration for Armitage, praising his intelligence.

    Speaking of Armitage, who has been playing the role since he was 9, Parsons said, “It’s such a different experience for him, and he’s so smart. He doesn’t need any. He’s got good guidance. He and his mother, they’re just fantastic.”

    So, he’ll be fine. God knows what he’ll do,” Parsons said, adding, “He could do anything.”

    Meanwhile, Armitage himself said he plans on exploring diverse roles that are different than Sheldon’s. For now, fans can catch both Armitage and Parsons in the finale of ‘Young Sheldon‘ on May 16.
