If it tanks, I think they will not think about it for awhile. if it chugs along, I think they might consider it. That's not based on what I want. It's based on how I think the showrunners think. It will be interesting to see how Young Sheldon fares without the audience base provided by the 'mother ship'. There was already a drop off in viewer numbers between TBBT and YS and 'The Unicorn' doesn't look like anything special. I watched YS since it followed TBBT and have grown to appreciate the program. I'll DVR it and see how the next season goes but it obviously has a limited shelf life simply because we already know George Cooper is going to die and Sheldon is going to college at a young age. Any reboot of TBBT will be an absolute shocker to me. Jim Parsons has clearly moved on and I can't imagine him ever wanting to don the Sheldon persona in the future. The others will move onto other endeavors, but I think it will always be Parsons, and maybe Galecki, that will be the naysayer(s) that kill any TBBT reunion. I can understand Jim Parsons wanting to move on from Sheldon Cooper. Twelve years in super hero shirts would be enough for most people, and I cannot disagree with his belief that he had (or would soon) age out of the role in a way that the others would not. He has always been very open about his love for live theater and it's easy to imagine him being happier in the anonymity that New York offers to celebrities wanting to live something to close to a normal private life. TBBT had its run and from a quality point of view it probably ran too long. I can certainly see how some of the actors and production crew might have liked to see it continue as it provided them with a steady income and secure employment. TBBT made the big three quite wealthy. Less so for the other five main characters, and most likely none of them will ever be considered the 'star' of any program in the future. No doubt they'll all find work as there are so many programming holes to fill these days it and will be hard for them to sit idle unless it's by choice and, for the near future, there will be projects that will want them for the name recognition they carry from TBBT. From what I've seen everyone involved with TBBT has said all the right things about the show ending and no one has expressed anything but support for Jim Parsons but, the fact is, that for five regular cast members, some supporting cast members, and a whole lot of production staff, JP is the one that killed the golden goose. (I know there are some who will take issue with that last statement but that's how I see it. It's not meant as a criticism of Jim Parsons but the fact is that his decision impacted the lives of a lot of people in a major way and, the industry being what it is, some of them will never again regain what they lost when TBBT ended.)
