Summary

  • A
    Young Sheldon
    spinoff was announced, featuring the characters Georgie and Mandy, filling the void left by the end of the show.
  • The spinoff will be multi-camera, returning to a more traditional sitcom format.
  • It is unclear if Sheldon Cooper will appear in his own spinoff, but the story will focus on Georgie and Mandy as parents.



Even as the show ends after seven seasons, a Young Sheldon spinoff has been announced which will continue the story of the Cooper family. Young Sheldon is itself a prequel to the wildly popular Big Bang Theory and follows the fan-favorite character of Sheldon Cooper as he attempts to adjust to life as a brilliant and quirky child in Texas. Much like its predecessor, Young Sheldon became a smash hit in its own right and has necessitated the continuation of the larger Big Bang Theory universe under producer Chuck Lorre.

The recently-announced Young Sheldon spinoff is not to be confused with the Big Bang Theory spinoff that Lorre also announced at the end of 2023. While details about that spinoff seem to be in limbo at the moment, details surrounding the Young Sheldon spinoff are much more firm and suggest the series is much closer to reaching the screen than the aforementioned Big Bang Theory continuation. Based on the information provided, the Young Sheldon spinoff might not feature the beloved character, which could truly test the overall appeal of the franchise.

After being announced in early 2024, the latest update sees the Young Sheldon Georgie and Mandy spinoff officially move forward at CBS. Though the fate of the continuation of the highly successful franchise was never really in doubt, the Georgie and Mandy sitcom has moved out of the development phase and has been given a series order by the network. Little is known about the project at this time, but it is slated to be part of CBS’ 2024-2025 TV season.

The Young Sheldon Spinoff Is Confirmed

The Spinoff Was Announced In January 2024

Unlike the spinoff of The Big Bang Theory that is still uncertain, the spinoff for Young Sheldon was officially announced in January 2024. In order to fill the major void that will be left behind on CBS after Young Sheldon goes off the air following season 7, the network is developing a spinoff that will feature the characters of Georgie and Mandy. The series will be multi-camera, bringing it more in line with the traditional sitcom format, unlike Young Sheldon which is single-camera. The series has Big Bang Theory and Young Sheldon alums Chuck Lorre, Steve Holland and Steven Molaro attached as producers.

Montana Jordan & Emily Osment Return


Since the spinoff will center on Georgie and Mandy, Montana Jordan and Emily Osment will return to their respective roles. At this juncture, it is unclear what other characters from the franchise will be involved, and it is uncertain if Sheldon Cooper (Iain Armitage) will even appear in his own spinoff. On the other hand, it stands to reason that any of the Texas-based Young Sheldon characters could return. However, one Young Sheldon star who will not be returning is Raegan Revord, who expressed her desire to get away from the Missy character and evolve beyond her years as a child actor.

While exact details about the spinoff’s story haven’t been revealed yet, it is known that it will focus on Georgie and Mandy as they embark on their new lives as parents. It has been confirmed that the Georgie and Mandy spinoff will introduce Mandy’s family into the equation, something largely absent in Young Sheldon. With most of the cast of the aforementioned Young Sheldon unlikely to appear, Mandy’s family will need to take center stage and fill in the gaps.


It is known from details revealed in The Big Bang Theory that Georgie and Mandy’s relationship ends in divorce, so it is unclear how the new spinoff will tackle such a dark storyline. Likewise, if it has any hopes of lasting as long as its predecessor, it will need to find a way to stretch the storyline out even if their relationship deteriorates. The Young Sheldon spinoff could flesh out the demise of their relationship, or it could do a bit of historical revision and change the established canon from TBBT.
