AceShowbiz - The crossover that fans have been waiting for is coming! After CBS announced last year that "Young Sheldon", a prequel series of comedy hit "The Big Bang Theory", fans are wondering if they will ever get to see the two series having a crossover. Now, it's reported that it is happening!
"Young Sheldon" star Iain Armitage, who plays young version of Jim Parsons' Sheldon Cooper, is set to make a cameo in a December episode of "The Big Bang Theory". Also joining Iain in the crossover episode are fellow cast members from the single-camera spin-off Lance Barber (George) and Montana Jordan (Georgie).
While there's not much known about how the crossover is going to work, fans are definitely pleased over the news. Some fans assume it may be a flashback scene since Sheldon's dad George has been canonically dead since 1994 in "The Big Bang Theory". Eitherway, the crossover is perfectly timed as the current season 12 is the final season of "The Big Bang Theory".
The show announced the heartbreaking news back in August. "We are forever grateful to our fans for their support of 'The Big Bang Theory' during the past 12 seasons," said Warner Bros. TV, CBS and Chuck Lorre Productions in a joint statement. "We, along with the cast, writers and crew, are extremely appreciative of the show’s success and aim to deliver a final season, and series finale, that will bring 'The Big Bang Theory' to an epic creative close."
It was reported that Emmy-winning actor Jim didn't want to return for another season of "The Big Bang Theory". Creator Chuck allegedly then decided to pull the plug on the long-running series as the show would lose its charm without main Sheldon-Leonard-Penny dynamic that people love since the beginning.
"The Big Bang Theory" season 12 airs on Thursday at 8 P.M. with "Young Sheldon" following it up at 8.30 P.M. on CBS.
