What to Expect From ‘The Big Bang Theory’-‘Young Sheldon’ Crossover
And Young Sheldon‘s titular star isn’t the only cast member dropping by Big Bang Theory, as Lance Barber (Sheldon’s father, George Sr.) and Montana Jordan (Sheldon’s brother, Georgie) are also set to appear.
“Sheldon and Amy are still down about their [Super Asymmetry] theory being disproven, but a VHS tape from Sheldon’s past inspires him not to give up,” the release reads. “Also, Bernadette turns into a pageant mom when she tries to help Wolowitz ace his Magic Castle audition.”
So what info can we glean from this short description? The introduction of a VHS tape is certainly a start, as it sounds like it will be the link between the present and the past. Popular in the ’80s and ’90s, VHS tapes were the staple when it came time to watch or make a home movie.
While the details are still a little fuzzy, the synopsis clears up any confusion about the two different timelines. And this isn’t the only exciting news we’ve learned about the episode: Making a return as Leonard’s (Johnny Galecki) mother Beverly is The Good Fight‘s Christine Baranski.
All of this and more will be part of the big crossover, so be sure to tune in!
