Mayim Bialik is coming back to The Big Bang Theory. The series finale of the prequel Young Sheldon will air on May 16, and both Jim Parsons and Bialik will reprise their roles as Sheldon Cooper and Amy Farrah Fowler. While CBS is keeping details close to the vest, fans are undoubtedly excited to see the on-screen couple back together again.

Reuniting For The Young Sheldon Finale

Parsons has played the role of Sheldon throughout the Young Sheldon series as the adult voiceover. He also executive produces the show, which depicts the early years of Sheldon Cooper. This isn’t the first time that Mayim Bialik has had a guest role on the show, as she previously appeared twice via voiceover.

For The Big Bang Theory Fans

Of course, seeing Jim Parsons and Mayim Bialik back in person will be more meaningful for fans of The Big Bang Theory. Kaley Cuoco and Simon Helberg, who played Penny and Howard on the flagship series, have also previously appeared on the show. There’s no word if we can expect these characters or others to make a guest appearance in person along with Bialik and Parsons.

A Spin-Off Of A Spin-Off

While Young Sheldon may be coming to an end, CBS is continuing the franchise with a Young Sheldon spin-off that focuses on Mandy (Emily Osment) and Georgie (Montana Jordan). The spin-off will follow Mandy and Georgie as they focus on their marriage and raising their family in Texas. The spin-off will go back to the original format of The Big Bang Theory as a half-hour, multi-camera comedy.

A Fourth Spin-Off In The Works

Considering the subject matter of the Mandy and Georgie spin-off, it seems pretty unlikely we’ll see cast members of The Big Bang Theory make an appearance there. But, there are also reports that there is another spin-off of The Big Bang Theory in the works, though details about the spin-off are being kept under wraps. If the spin-off takes place after the original series, there’s certainly a chance we could see actors like Jim Parsons and Mayim Bialik make guest appearances as their characters again.

Since ending her role on The Big Bang Theory, Mayim Bialik became the co-host of Jeopardy! alongside Ken Jennings. Bialik earned an Emmy nomination for her hosting duties but was let go from hosting the syndicated version game show back in December. Executive producer Michael Davies revealed the decision was made because they wanted a single host but that the show hopes to possibly work with Bialik again in the future for primetime versions and spin-offs.

Call Me Kat

Along with hosting Jeopardy!, Mayim Bialik also starred in her own sitcom called Call Me Kat after the end of The Big Bang Theory. Call Me Kat starred Bialik as the titular woman, who decides to open a cat cafe. Call Me Kat’s third season aired in 2023, but it was canceled by Fox before getting a fourth season.

The Last Appearance Of Sheldon And Amy?

The Young Sheldon series finale is set to air on CBS on Thursday, May 16. Make sure to tune in if you want to see Mayim Bialik and Jim Parsons reprise their roles for possibly the last time. In the meantime, the next episode of the season will air on March 7.
