young sheldon said goodbye Thursday night, making his final farewell after seven seasons.

Big Bang Theory The prequel series ended with a two-part finale. The penultimate episode, “Funeral,” naturally focused on the death of Sheldon’s father, George Cooper (Lance Barber), as each of the Coopers prepared to say goodbye to their football- and beer-loving patriarch.

But it was the final episode, “Memoir,” that dropped some major revelations about the characters viewers have come to know and love.

Some of the revelations were relatively minor, such as Sheldon agreeing to be baptized into the church despite his “well-established atheism”, for the sake of his grieving mother. Some were hilariously unexpected, like the fact that when the finale ended he appeared as an adult Sheldon (Jim Parsons) and his wife, Amy Farrah Fowler (Mayim Bialik), it was revealed that the couple’s children did not seem to follow in their cerebral footsteps.

On the one hand, his daughter has become interested in acting. “I told you we should have never let Penny babysit,” Sheldon grumbles to his wife.

Even more surprising is that his son, Leonard, is an avid athlete.

“That’s why I wanted to wait until cloning was a possibility,” Sheldon tells Amy. “Because the natural way got us a hockey player!”

However, the biggest reveal of all came early in the episode, when it was confirmed that Parsons’ voiceover throughout the series was actually that of an adult Sheldon writing his memoirs, and also stalling while arguing. with Amy for attending one of Leonard’s meetings. hockey games.

The final scene was the end of Sheldon’s story for now, but the beginning of a completely different adventure for the beloved character.

Armitage’s Sheldon arrives at the CalTech campus and takes it all in as he prepares for his new studies.

“You lost?” asks a passerby.

“No,” he replies. “I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be.”

ET spoke with Parsons about returning to his Emmy-winning character for the young sheldon final, and said the experience was “beautiful.”

“We’re older and we haven’t seen these people,” he said of the future Sheldon and Amy he and Bialik emoted in their scenes. “It just felt different, but it was very, very sweet.”

“It was even more beautiful than I expected,” he added. “One of the reasons I was excited to do it is because what they wrote is so sweet and I think they incorporated Mayim and I into that show so beautifully. I hope everyone agrees.”

As for Armitage, he reflected to ET about growing up in the program and what he hopes his Sheldon legacy will be.

“In 20 or 30 years, or maybe 10 or 20 years, I hope that people who watch this show (who are now) my age or a little older, watch it with their kids or say, ‘Oh, remember young sheldon? That was fun. I always liked that,'” she shared. “I would like it to be a piece of nostalgia and a show of comfort.”

However, the show’s universe will continue, as CBS ordered a spinoff of the spinoff, focusing on Sheldon’s older brother Georgie (jordan mountain), his wife, (Emily Osment) and his young family.

ET spoke with Jordan and Osment on upcoming series to be called Georgie and Mandy’s first marriageand the duo admitted that their enthusiasm helped dull the pain of saying goodbye to Young Sheldon.

“I’m grateful and blessed to have been given this opportunity,” Jordan said of the spinoff, which will start shooting this summer. “It kind of helps you distract yourself a little bit.”

“Yes, yes,” Osment agreed. “We’re lucky in that sense because we have something sweet to look forward to.”
