‘The Big Bang Theory’ had a successful 12-season long run in the entertainment industry and so did its adorable counterpart series ‘Young Sheldon’. ‘Young Sheldon’ is wrapping up with season 4 this September, so is another spin-off on the cards? Let’s explore!
So as dedicated fans of this popular sitcom, we’ll always ask for more right? There are speculations that CBS wants to work on another spin-off series from the franchise called ‘Young Howard’. Are you excited by the idea of a little Howard Wolowitz? Read on folks!
- Will there be a spin-off series on Howard Wolowitz called ‘Young Howard’?
- What to expect from the ‘Young Howard’ spin-off series of ‘The Big Bang Theory’?
- Is ‘Young Howard’ confirmed by the makers?
Like all good things that come to an end, ‘The Big Bang Theory’ aired its last episode on 16th May 2019. The reason it went off the air was because actors Jim Parson and Johnny Galecki wanted to move on, and everyone felt it was the right time to end the show as well.
But that didn’t stop the makers from going ahead with its spin-off series ‘Young Sheldon’. Even Jim Parsons himself came forward to narrate in the show and is the executive producer of the same. Season 3 is currently airing and a new one will premiere soon in September.
So can ‘Young Howard’ be the next spin-off?
Since ‘Young Sheldon’ is coming to an end, there are chances that CBS might introduce another spin-off series for its loyal audience. After the end of its main show, Sheldon Cooper’s spin-off helped take the legacy of TBBT forward. So it’s possible that the television network can bring the childhood version of Howard Wolowitz to the limelight this time.
‘Young Sheldon’ season 2 gave us a glimpse of the younger versions of Sheldon’s future best friends – Raj, Leonard, Howard, Amy, Bernadette, and Penny. Amongst them, the mini version of Howard definitely stood out. He was shown playing video games while his mother yelled at him like she usually does.
His story has a lot of depth to explore, especially the toxic relationship between him and his mother. And from how he dealt with the separation of his parents to him discovering his passion to become an astronaut, his story definitely deserves a spin-off of its own.
What to expect from the ‘Young Howard’ spin-off series of ‘The Big Bang Theory’?
Another thing to look into is that the show if created, can avoid the hurdles of any potholes. TBBT did not speak much about the childhood of Howard, so making a spin-off on him will not be a complicated task for the writers.
‘Young Sheldon’ on the other hand had many unresolved potholes to deal with as Sheldon’s past was already spoken about in the main show. So while this issue could have been avoided, the character portrayals differ greatly in ‘Young Sheldon’ and ‘The Big Bang Theory’.
In this regard, ‘Young Howard’ leaves a lot of room for the writers to explore his character in detail. The idea sounds very promising to us fans, doesn’t it?
But is the ‘Young Howard’ spin-off confirmed?
There’s no confirmation on the launch of the spin-off, but there are speculations that the idea could be executed very soon. CBS has garnered a lot of attention for its ‘Big Bang Theory’ franchise over the years, and it might use this opportunity to rule the small screen again.
However, no filming has started yet so it might be a while before we get to see this next exciting series.
