    Reflecting on the crossover, Jim Parsons spoke about the dynamic of filming with Bialik, especially given the differences between the live-audience format of ‘The Big Bang Theory‘ and the single-camera setup of ‘Young Sheldon.

    Big Bang Theory was always a live-audience show and Young Sheldon is a single-camera show, and I got to do it with Mayim — we both played Sheldon and Amy from the series — and to do it in that situation, it was just different enough that it wasn’t creepy,” Parsons said during the interview.

    To do it in that situation, it was just different enough that it wasn’t creepy… Instead, it was really sweet. It felt like the nicest little coda to the whole experience, and I was very grateful that they asked us to do it,” Parsons said.

    Young Sheldon‘ has Iain Armitage in the lead role playing the younger version of Sheldon Cooper, with the story narrative revolving around the character’s adolescent years before ‘The Big Bang Theory.

    Though ‘Young Sheldon‘ is bidding farewell to its beloved audience, the ‘Big Bang Theory‘ universe continues to expand with the announcement of a spinoff around Georgie Cooper and his wife Mandy raising their family in Texas.
