Young Sheldon Series Finale: Iain Armitage Marks End of Production on Big Bang Theory Prequel — See Photos

That’s a wrap on Young Sheldon.

After seven seasons, the Big Bang Theory prequel finished filming its series finale Tuesday — and emotions are running high. As the stars of the long-running CBS comedy say goodbye, several cast members are sharing behind-the-scenes photos from their final hours on set.

“Today was our last day of filming @YoungSheldonCBS,” leading man Iain Armitage wrote on Instagram. “What a joy, honor and a privilege.”

In a subsequent post shared Wednesday, Armitage reflected on his very first day on set in 2017:

“This is eight-year-old me getting ready to film the very first scene I did as Young Sheldon,” he wrote. “@MelissaPeterman recently asked what I would go back and tell my younger self. Maybe I wouldn’t tell him anything and I would just let life unfold as it does, but I think he’d be so surprised and happy to see where we are now. I sure am. I don’t think this kid could have anticipated what it would feel like to film our final scene all these years later. Thank you, amazing crew, past and present, and those who have been there the whole time. I love you all so much!

Armitage’s TV sister also documented her last day on set: A video on Raegan Revord’s Instagram story shows Revord (Missy) and Annie Potts (Meemaw) hugging it out. Her caption reads, “My emotional state at the moment.”

Recurring guest star Melissa Peterman (aka Brenda Sparks) also marked the end of production with a selfie in front of the Young Sheldon stage at Warner Bros. Studios:

Young Sheldon director Alex Reid, who helmed the spinoff’s swan song, posted a heartfelt remembrance of his own. “I can’t express how much my time on this show has meant to me,” he wrote. “To watch these actors evolve through the years felt like watching my own family grow and change. Right now I have no words but in the coming days I’ll post some of my photos from the 36 episodes I was fortunate enough to direct. This is from this afternoon, before we shot our last scene.”

But perhaps no post was more jarring than this one shared by Montana Jordan — aka Georgie — who took a video to show that the Young Sheldon set had already been dismantled by Wednesday afternoon:

As previously reported, Young Sheldon‘s one-hour series finale (airing Thursday, May 16 at 8/7c) will feature cameos by Jim Parsons and Mayim Bialik, who will reprise their on-screen roles as Drs. Sheldon Cooper and Amy Farrah Fowler for the first time since Big Bang Theory‘s 2019 series finale.

The Big Bang franchise will then continue in the fall with the first of two planned spinoffs: CBS’ as-yet-untitled Georgie and Mandy spinoff starring Jordan and Emily Osment. Series co-creator Chuck Lorre is also developing a Big Bang Theory offshoot for streaming service Max.
