As the 279th episode of The Big Bang Theory wrapped the greatest show of all time, fans have begun to binge watch Young Sheldon as it takes the audience back to the time when it all began.
- Young Sheldon’s story
- Sheldon moves away
- Season 4 confirmation
What is Young Sheldon all about?
The series that stars Iain Armitage as young Sheldon in lead revolves around the protagonist and his family’s lives in Medford, Texas. Unlike his twin sister and older brother George Cooper Jr., Sheldon, as one would call, is a quirky science geek.
Much like its parent show The Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon has proven to be well acclaimed by critics. The series is currently on its third season and so far the audience sees signs of how Young Sheldon could possibly be moving into The Big Bang Theory apartment.
The child genius, who skipped four grades, starts high school with his not-so-intellect older brother George Cooper Jr. The series unravels through Sheldon’s everyday life and his struggles of not being understood by his family, classmates and neighbors.
While his mother and grandmother A.K.A. Meemaw and his father- a football coach, try their best to understand him through their ways of showing love and compassion, and by accepting him for the way he is; his siblings are often quite embarrassed of how smart their brother is.
Not to forget to mention, Jim Parsons, who plays the adult version of Sheldon on The Big Bang Theory narrates the series.
The time when Young Sheldon moves away
In episode 16 of the third installment, Sheldon and his father visit Caltech for the first time. “I can see myself going here one day” says Sheldon to his father. In response to that George Sr. says “I think you’d fit right in”
Wait, didn’t Alex Dunphy from Modern Family also go to Caltech? Of course, she did. After all, the university is known to be one of the most prestigious institutes for students who want to study science.
Perhaps, if Sheldon and Alex were to have met, they would’ve been quite compatible for each other. But Sheldon was only meant to meet his best friends Leonard, Raj and Howard whom he works with at Caltech.
Fans Predict the End of Young Sheldon
In The Big Bang Theory we see Sheldon and Leonard living in an apartment which becomes the social hub for the characters who gather there for most of the show.
While fans continue to wonder how many more episodes will air, they definitely believe that Young Sheldon will move into the famous apartment. Now that TBBT isn’t filming anymore, this prediction just might be possible.
However, the producers of the series haven’t confirmed anything so far. Fans also feel that inconsistencies of Sheldon’s family as described by him in The Big Bang Theory and the kind that is shown in Young Sheldon might finally come together and make better sense.
Season 4 Confirmation
If we imagine a scenario where Sheldon’s dad does end up being a drunkard, his parents divorce each other and his siblings don’t see eye to anymore in the later seasons of Young Sheldon, Sheldon’s past as described by him in TBBT could all make sense.
Season 4 has already been given a green light and as far as speculations go, the new season might air sometime in September this year.
