THE BIG BANG THE­ORY

TV Plus (South Africa) - - BIG NEW -

The cre­ators and pro­duc­ers of nerdy com­edy The Big Bang The­ory (2007cur­rent, see more on p53) are mak­ing sure that it goes out with a bang at the end of the cur­rent 12th sea­son by link­ing it with cur­rent spin-off hit Young Shel­don (2017-cur­rent). Iain Armitage will pop up as a younger Shel­don in a flash­back by Big Bang’s Shel­don (Jim Par­sons) and he isn’t alone – Lance Bar­ber and Mon­tana Jor­dan will ap­pear as their Young Shel­don char­ac­ters, Shel­don’s dad Ge­orge and older brother Ge­orgie. The show hasn’t re­vealed which episode the flash­back will be in and pro­duc­tion com­pa­nies CBS and Warner Bros are keep­ing mum too, but it’s go­ing to be a wait – the episode films in April 2019 and should air in May. At the same time, Johnny Galecki (Leonard in Big Bang) has shot down other spin-off ideas, say­ing that “with­out Jim, it’s sim­ply not hap­pen­ing”.

Young and older Shel­don will share a screen for the first time.
