Young Sheldon, it’s over! “There was a lot of real emotion mixed with character emotion” to film the final scene of The Big Bang Theory spin-off series.

SPOILER ALERT! This article reveals key elements as well as the ending of “Young Sheldon”.

On May 16, Young Sheldon aired its final episode on CBS in the US. In Season 7, Episode 14, titled “Memoirs,” The Big Bang Theory spin-off concluded, with a young Sheldon Cooper (Ian Armitage) heading to California to continue his studies at Caltech. The finale, which we know also marked the return of Jim Parsons and Mayim Bialik to the shoes of our original adult Sheldon and Amy Farrah Fowler, his wife.

In an interview with Deadline, the sitcom’s executive producer Steve Holland talked about this emotional finale, which unfortunately followed the original story we know from TBBT and saw that precious George (Lance Barber) disappear from Sheldon’s life.

When asked about the last scene they shot, Steve Holland replied: “It was a family dinner scene where Mary wants to baptize them. George’s chair is there with the setting of the place, but he is clearly dead at this point. So we wanted to end with a scene that contained as many characters as possible. And those dinner scenes were a staple of the series.

In the last episode, Mary (Zoe Perry) actually wants her children to be baptized. According to the producer, this is the result of Giorgi’s death and is a transition: we are leaving the city hall Young Sheldon on one of them The big bang theorywhich becomes more religious than it already was after this tragic event.

We always thought George’s death was kind of a lightbulb moment for a lot of these characters. I think for her, especially after losing George and realizing that anything can happen at any time, she turns to religion and it’s very important for her to know that her children’s souls are safe – especially for Sheldon, who is going to go out into the world. , where he cannot protect her. I think it’s very important for him to feel that he’s okay.

Last day of shooting

As for the atmosphere on the set, knowing that the series was ending then, Steve Holland He spoke about the last month of filming, filled with tears: an intense experience, between fantasy and reality.

It was really moving. I mean, honestly, it was the whole last month. It was incredibly emotional writing the funeral episode and the finale and realizing how this was the last young Sheldon script we were going to write. And then when we started production on these last three episodes, everybody knew that the show was coming to an end, and they were mourning in one way or another, and also mourning the death of a character. So there was a lot of real emotion mixed in with the character emotions. Tears were available for all, but it literally took weeks to say goodbye.

Jim Parsons and Mayim Bialik, the long-awaited return

As for the return idea Jim Parsons and Mayim Bialik, Steve Holland It turned out that this was what he and his colleagues had always wanted.

I think in the back of our minds, it was always what we wanted. Of course, Jim, because he told the whole story. As we got to the final episode, I think Chuck Lorre brought up the idea of ​​bringing back Mamie and Jimmy, which was really exciting and fun. But then it was a balancing act for us. We wanted to make sure we respected that casting and didn’t let the grown-up Sheldon and Amy dominate the final episode. I’m really happy with the balance we’ve found. I think Jimmy and Mamie are in it a lot, but I think the Cooper family still has their moment to shine.

A grown-up Sheldon writes a memoir about his childhood in Texas, which is nothing more than a series we’ve watched for 7 seasons – and one we wish never ended.

Bye Sheldon, good luck at Caltech! We have no doubt that your studies will be successful, and what’s more, you’ll make great friends… but who knows, maybe we’ll see the young character appear again in a spin-off centered around his brother George and his little girl. friend mandy So it’s not over yet…

The first 5 seasons of Young Sheldon in France are available on Netflix.
