Young Sheldon will say goodbye on May 16 with the end of the seventh season. Nothing remains. To whet your appetite, the official account of the series has uploaded an original promotional video: an unforeseen collaboration between Iain Armitage, who plays Sheldon Cooper as a young man, and Jim Parsons, who gave life to the physicist in The Big Bang Theory.

“It seems like there’s a new filter that shows you what you’ll be like when you’re older,” says Armitage, 15, looking at the camera on his phone before covering it. “I don’t know how accurate it will be but let me try it,” he warns. And what happens when she uncovers? That appears, of course, Parsons, 51 years old.

“Mhm… I’m not sure about this,” says the winner of four Emmy Awards for best television comedy actor when he sees himself on screen. “Oh, it also changes your voice,” he comments skeptically before blurting out that he doesn’t like the app.

With these images, which were taken on the set of Young Sheldon (there are the sets in the background as confirmation), we finally have the first images of the outcome of the prequel to The Big Bang Theory after it was announced that both Jim Parsons like Mayim Bialik, his wife in fiction like Amy Farrah Fowler, will be in the chapter.

Of course, the adult Sheldon Cooper already explained in an interview what it had been like to return in front of the cameras to play the character he physically fired in 2019 in The Big Bang Theory, although he has been participating since then only on a vocal level as narrator of Young Sheldon. .

“The Big Bang Theory was always a series with a live audience and Young Sheldon was a single-camera series,” he explained about the format change that meant that, when he was in the prequel, there was no audience to react to. his jokes. This seemed strange to him and, luckily, coinciding with Bialik allowed him to feel more comfortable.

“It was the icing on the cake of the whole experience and I was very grateful that they asked us to do it,” he said about his participation in saying goodbye to his character. Now it remains to be seen if Armitage will reprise her role in the Young Sheldon spin-off centered on the characters of Georgie and Mandy, the roles played by Montana Jordan and Emily Osment.
