The Big Bang Theory Events Young Sheldon Season 7 Must Address

The final season of Young Sheldon has some catching up to do with The Big Bang Theory canon.

“Half a Wiener Schnitzel and Underwear in a Tree” - News of the tornado reaches Sheldon and Mary in Germany. Also, with the Cooper house in chaos, Missy steps up, on the season 7 premiere of YOUNG SHELDON, Thursday, February 15 (8:00-8:31 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network, and available to stream live and on demand on Paramount+*.

When The Big Bang Theory spinoff Young Sheldon debuted seven years ago, it seemingly tried to distinguish itself from the major sitcom that reshaped the TV universe. Sheldon ditched the live audience, lost the multi-cam set up, and went for more of a Wonder Years or Everyone Hates Chris vibe, focussing mainly on family values and 22-minute stories of morality. 

That’s not to say that Young Sheldon forgot where it came from, however. The show has borrowed several Big Bang story threads in order to create continuity and expand on Sheldon Cooper’s history. Yet there are some major holes that haven’t been addressed that fans of both shows have noticed. 

With Young Sheldon’s final season just around the corner, here are some of the biggest questions left unanswered in the Big Bang universe. 

Sheldon Starting at Caltech

It’s perhaps a forgone conclusion, but the narrative of Young Sheldon almost has to end when he begins his adventures at the California Institute of Technology a.k.a. Caltech. Granted, it’s unlikely that we’ll see Sheldon meeting his new family of Leonard, Penny, Raj, Howard or his eventual wife, Amy, but it would be hard to imagine going the entire final season without some kind of cameo from any combination of these characters.
