In the series finale of CBS's Young Sheldon, Jim Parsons and Mayim Bialik, who are known for their roles as Sheldon Cooper and Amy Farrah Fowler, respectively, from The Big Bang Theory, will make an appearance. No one knows what the episode is about or how the actors will be involved until Thursday, May 16, when it airs. 

Young Sheldon and The Big Bang Theory crossover details

Naturally, Parsons has been an integral part of Young Sheldon since the start, both as a producer and as the show's narrator. On two occasions, Bialik has provided her voicing talents to the Young Sheldon series. However, this marks the first onscreen appearance of their characters—the grown-up versions of Sheldon and Amy—since The Big Bang Theory series finale in May 2019.


The Big Bang Theory debuted in 2007 and ended in 2019, while Young Sheldon debuted in 2017. The announcement that Parsons and Bialik will be appearing on Young Sheldon follows a day after CBS said that the Big Bang Theory/Young Sheldon universe will continue with a spin-off starring Montagna Jordan as Sheldon's brother Georgie and Emily Osment as his wife Mandy. CBS officially ordered the 2024–2025 broadcast season of that show.

Young Sheldon: A television phenomenon

Chuck Lorre and Steven Molaro created Young Sheldon, featuring Iain Armitage as Sheldon Cooper, the younger version of Parsons' character from The Big Bang Theory. Beginning the 2017–2018 television season as the most popular new comedy, the show has maintained its position as the most viewed primetime laffer in television history. The off-net episodes of Young Sheldon have also become a streaming powerhouse, with viewers able to enjoy them on Netflix and Prime Video in India.

Young Sheldon features Armitage, Zoe Perry, Annie Potts, Montana Jordan, Raegan Revord, Emily Osment, and Parsons, who voices Sheldon. Chuck Lorre, Molaro, Steve Holland, Nick Bakay, Parsons, and Todd Spiewak are the executive producers of the sitcom, which is one that he produced in association with Warner Bros. Television.

Producers reflect on the journey of Young Sheldon

In a joint statement last November, Holland, Molaro, and Lorre stated that it has been a wonderful experience being able to tell the origin story of Sheldon Cooper and expanding the story to include the entire Cooper family. These past six seasons have been an incredible journey for the Coopers, and they can't thank our fans enough for supporting them.

Perhaps Parsons and Bialik will have more opportunities to be together in the future. Thanks to Lorre's overall relationship with Warner Bros. Television, another The Big Bang Theory spinoff could be in the works at Max. People think that one will be an hour-long series with a mostly new cast, while some familiar faces from the series might make cameo appearances.
