Will "Young Sheldon" come full circle with "The Big Bang Theory" if it reaches 14 seasons?

Recommended Posts

The pilot episode is dated 1989, and the flashback episode of TBBT where Leonard first met Sheldon is dated 2003.  If "Young Sheldon" achieves longevity, I wonder if the writers will incorporate their friendship into the finale?  Although, 14 years is a rarity, and "The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet" still maintains that throne since 1966.  On top of that, Sheldon was nine years old in 1989, making him 23 in 2003, and coming-of-age sitcoms typically do not chronicle the lead character's life beyond childhood ("The Wonder Years," "Everybody Hates Chris," to name a few").  But, despite my doubts, I hope the writers will make an exception with "Young Sheldon."

Hmm I tend to agree with you on your point about sitcoms not chronicling a characters life beyond childhood. I was a little dubious about this show when I first heard about it, but have to say I really like it.

Maybe instead of going full circle to 2003, we might get an episode when Sheldon and Leonard come close to meeting, perhaps at a summer camp for gifted children.

If we do get to see this full circle their could possibly be an issue with is as we are told they meet in 2003 but then in an episode of The Big Bang Theory Sheldon complains about waiting in line for Star Trek nemesis which came out in 2002.This could possibly course an issue with the full circle if it was to occur.

However I would love to see how the young Sheldon we love evolves to become the Sheldon we had first fallen in love with. l also I think it could be a possible issue with George Sr's death as I think he is a large part of the show at the moment.

I like the idea of a possible encounter and the finale of Season 2 melted my heart, getting an insight into all the characters we have loved over the past 12 years as children is incredible. Maybe Young Sheldon could be the start of the path to finding out how the other beloved characters were as young children. It would be interesting to see the castings for the parents of them all.

I expect if we get may more seasons of YS it will deviate wide from TBBT. TBBT had consistency problems before YS was announced. To come full circle would seem very unlikely to me.
