Jim Parsons Talks Potential of 'Big Bang Theory' Sequel to Reprise Sheldon Cooper Character

The actor, who brought Sheldon Cooper to life for more than a decade, reflects on whether he would ever step back into the brilliant yet peculiar shoes of the beloved physicist.

AceShowbiz - Only those who've lived under a rock for the past decade would be unfamiliar with Sheldon Cooper, the eccentric, socially awkward genius from CBS's "The Big Bang Theory". Played by Jim Parsons, Sheldon quickly became a fan-favorite character, spawning not just 12 successful seasons of the original series but also a prequel, "Young Sheldon". However, as fans clamor for more, the crucial question remains: Would Parsons ever reprise his role as Sheldon in a possible sequel or spin-off?

Recently, in an interview with E! News, Parsons addressed this pressing issue. When asked what it would take for him to don Sheldon's quirks and mannerisms once more, his candid response was both humorous and revealing: "Reincarnation," Parsons quipped. "Next lifetime." Expanding on that sentiment, he added, "Never say never to anything. Life is long, God-willing, but I don't think so."

Playing Sheldon Cooper for 12 seasons was no small feat. "It was very special to do that," Parsons reflected on his time portraying the character. Ending the original series was a bittersweet moment for him, and revisiting the world in "Young Sheldon" brought back those feelings anew. "The feeling today is kind of odd. It's the second time now because when we ended The Big Bang Theory it felt like this too, a little bit different, but you shoot that final episode and it's wrapped for you. And then a couple of months later it wraps for the rest of the world and it's a very weird feeling to flood over you again like that," he explained.
