    The Big Bang Theory‘ and its prequel that came after the iconic sitcom came to an end, ‘Young Sheldon‘, are both some of the most loved sitcoms to exist. While the original series has been expanding its fan base even after its end, its prequel is also a fan favorite.

    Young Sheldon‘ explores the childhood of the character Sheldon Cooper, and is scheduled to air its final episode on May 16 on CBS. While Parsons and Bialik have lent their voices to narrate the show throughout its seven seasons, this cameo marks the first time that any of the original cast members will physically appear in ‘Young Sheldon’.

    The series follows a 9-year-old Sheldon Cooper, played by Iain Armitage, as a child prodigy navigating high school in Texas. CBS announced in November 2023 that ‘Young Sheldon‘ would conclude with its seventh season.

    The decision to end ‘Young Sheldon‘ was gracefully accepted by the executive producers, Steve Holland, Steven Molaro, and Chuck Lorre, as they also expressed appreciation for the fans’ support throughout the show’s run.

    “Being able to tell the origin of Sheldon Cooper, and expanding the story to include the entire Cooper family has been a wonderful experience,” they said in a joint statement to PEOPLE last month. “We are grateful to our fans for embracing this chapter of the Coopers these past six seasons, and on behalf of the entire Young Sheldon family, we’re excited to share this final season with you,” the statement added.

    Iain Armitage, who has played the title role since the beginning, also spoke up about his experience with the series. “It’s been half my life, which is kind of wild to think about, but just so fun, so wonderful, and I couldn’t have asked for a better way to grow up,” he said during an interview last month. “Every single person I get to work with, I feel so honored to get to be working with and get to be their costar or … get to be part of their work and part of their livelihood.”

    As the series comes to an end, Armitage shared his hopes of incorporating some of Sheldon’s unique traits into his own life. “It’s funny, because I always sort of joke about like method acting [which] seems so silly to me … But it is weird. I really do kind of feel like half-Sheldon, half-Iain,” he explained.

    I would like to keep the brains. I would like to keep the once-in-a-generation genius part, but in lieu of that, I think the way he approaches the world is funny and unique, and I always hope to approach the world and people as uniquely and really focused on each person as I can,” he added.

    Fans of both ‘The Big Bang Theory‘ and ‘Young Sheldon‘ can look forward to the upcoming series finale on March 16.
