Did Young Sheldon Just Reveal the Premise of Next Season’s Georgie and Mandy Spinoff?

In Young Sheldon’s Season 7 premiere, Mandy swore that she would never move back in with her parents. “She’s pretty adamant that she would never do it,” executive producer Steve Holland told TVLine at the time. “Although, six or seven people in one house, with one bathroom, can start to wear thin after a while” — especially when that bathroom no longer has a working toilet.

We ran that scenario by Emily Osment during our recent Q&A, at which point Osment let slip that Mandy has a change of heart. Her about-face came in “An Ankle Monitor and a Big Plastic Crap House,” which gave off serious backdoor pilot vibes — that is, if CBS’ forthcoming Georgie-and-Mandy spinoff centers on Georgie and his young family living under his in-laws’ roof. But is that a spinoff you’d want to watch? Let’s get into it….

In Season 7, Episode 8, newlyweds Mandy and Georgie returned home to discover that A) Meemaw’s illegal gambling room had been shut down and Georgie was out of a job, and B) the Coopers would have to rely on a Porta-Potty until George and Mary scraped together enough money to replace their septic tank.

Suffice it to say, the honeymoon was officially over.

Unwilling to do her business in the backyard, Mandy, along with Georgie and CeeCee, moved in with Jim and Audrey (played by recurring guest stars Will Sasso and Rachel Bay Jones). Mandy’s dad welcomed all three of them into his home with open arms. As for her mom, well… let’s just say she was thrilled to have Mandy and CeeCee there.

Georgie knew it wasn’t going to be easy to win over his mother-in-law, but he was determined. Relentless, even! After making breakfast for the entire family, Georgie insisted on handling the grocery shopping. After that, he took it upon himself to clean out the McAllisters’ gutters. Yet Audrey remained skeptical that Georgie was worthy of being a member of their family. It wasn’t until she saw him reading CeeCee a bedtime story that she began to have a change of heart.

The following day, Georgie got himself a part-time job at the supermarket. It was a temporary solution, he explained, until he found a full-time job to support his wife and daughter. At that point, Audrey gave Jim the go-ahead to offer their son-in-law a job at McAllister Auto & Tire — and need we remind you, Sheldon’s brother eventually goes on to open his own chain of tire stores, a future development first presented during Season 11 of The Big Bang Theory.
