Press Release: Jim Parsons and Mayim Bialik will return as Sheldon Cooper and Amy Farrah Fowler in the series finale of YOUNG SHELDON, airing Thursday, May 16 on CBS, and streaming on Paramount+. Details of the appearance are being kept under wraps. The pair last appeared on screen together in THE BIG BANG THEORY series finale, which aired in May 2019.

Parsons serves as an executive producer and the narrator of YOUNG SHELDON. Bialik has also appeared in voiceover form in two episodes of the series.This will mark the first on-camera return of their characters.

Created by Chuck Lorre and Steven Molaro, YOUNG SHELDON centers on Sheldon Cooper, a once-in-a-generation mind capable of advanced mathematics and science, which isn’t always helpful in a land where church and football are king. And while the vulnerable, gifted and somewhat naïve Sheldon deals with the world, his very normal family must find a way to deal with him. For 12 years on THE BIG BANG THEORY, audiences came to know the iconic, eccentric and extraordinary Sheldon Cooper. This single-camera, half-hour comedy takes viewers through his childhood, as he embarks on his innocent, awkward and hopeful journey toward the man he will become.

The series stars Iain Armitage, Zoe Perry, Lance Barber, Annie Potts, Montana Jordan, Raegan Revord, Emily Osment and Jim Parsons (as the voice of Sheldon). Chuck Lorre, Steven Molaro, Steve Holland, Nick Bakay, Jim Parsons and Todd Spiewak serve as executive producers. YOUNG SHELDON is produced by Chuck Lorre Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.

Earlier this week, CBS announced an announced an untitled spinoff for the 2024-25 TV season from YOUNG SHELDON featuring Montana Jordan and Emily Osment.
