I think most folks assumed that season 7 would be the final season.

I don't think "cancelled" is the correct description. Seems like the producers are driving to close this part of the story, more than CBS is wanting to kill off a still popular show.

Either way, it's canceled. It was an ongoing show that's ending which means it has been canceled. Doesn't matter who made the decision.

That stinks...when the show got the renewal for 3 seasons at once (S5-7) I figured that would be the end. I will miss the show but glad they are wrapping it up before the quality suffers.

It's gotten to the point where the actor is aging out of the role. They can't realistically keep the character's age under 14 for much longer, so they would need to kill off the father on the show to be consistent with the prior continuity. I wonder if the series will end with the death of his father.

There's already got another Big Bang Theory spinoff in the works which will basically take the place of what could have been Young Sheldon season 8. With a new spinoff coming out, we won't have any gap in the Big Bang universe.

The beginning of the last season was already an adjustment as Iain Armitage's voice dropped big time between seasons.

They have to cover his Dad's passing.

No. Producer Steve Holland had said that the consideration for an eighth season was that the strikes would shorten the seventh season to the point where they could not deal with the father's death and the aftermath adequately.

Apparently, the spinoff will be about Georgie and Mandy.

It'll be a traditional 3 camera sitcom. No word on when it will take place in relation to YS or BBT. My guess would be it will take place at least 7-8 years after so the kid can be part of the show.

Darn, I was hoping it'll be "Middle-aged Sheldon" instead, oh well

If they don't skip some years, it would basically be a continuation of Young Sheldon without Sheldon and the dad. It was established in TBBT that Georgie resented Sheldon because he had to stay behind and take care of the family after their dad passed away.

I had no idea Young Sheldon brought in such big numbers.

Good for them. I like the show.

Jim Parsons and Mayim Bialik will be back on screen for the Young Sheldon finale. Also the Georgie/Mandy series is a go.

Jim Parsons and Mayim Bialik will reprise their roles as The Big Bang Theory’s Sheldon Cooper and Amy Farrah Fowler in the May 16 series finale of prequel series Young Sheldon.

Additional details about the onscreen couple’s appearance are being kept under wraps ahead of the series finale of the CBS comedy. Parsons, who exec produces and provides voiceover for Young Sheldon, and Bialik last appeared onscreen together in the May 2019 series finale of The Big Bang Theory, during which Sheldon and Amy won the Nobel Prize in physics.

Thus far, Young Sheldon has featured a number of references to Big Bang, with flagship favorites Kaley Cuoco (Penny), Simon Helberg (Howard) and Bialik (twice!) all previously appearing via voiceover.

News of Bialik and Parsons’ onscreen reunion comes a day after CBS officially confirmed that the franchise would continue with a Young Sheldon spinoff following Emily Osment and Montana Jordan’s characters, Mandy and Georgie.

I wonder if the greenlight for the Georgie & Mandy series means that George Sr.'s death will occur off-screen between the two series. They'll probably end Young Sheldon with the adult Sheldon mentioning something about and that was the last time my father and I yadda-yadda-yadda...

Maybe they'll go for a shock ending and the final scene will be Sheldon and Amy standing over his father's grave, and when they walk away the camera will pull back and we'll see a fresh grave for his mother. By this point narrator Sheldon has children so it's possible Mary could bite it. I mean, Chuck Lorre killed a whole mess of characters on Mom, so what's one more?

They should have all of Sheldon's family members who appeared on BBT appear with those actors. That would be his mom, Georgie, Missy, and Meemaw, I believe.

From tonight's episode, they finally handled the time that Sheldon caught his father "cheating" in the way I thought they might, or maybe I just saw that theory discussed somewhere.

Maybe COVID-19 got her because she wouldn't wear a mask, wouldn't get vaxxed, and kept going to church.

I got the same impression.

George Sr never cheated in the way we thought when BBT Sheldon said he walked in on it. Instead, he walked in on his dad and "Helga" never knowing that was really his mom all along.

I was hoping it wouldn't happen on Young Sheldon but instead mentioned on Georgie & Mandy's First Marriage as having happened a few weeks/months ago.
