Looks like Young Sheldon finally fixed its long-standing issue about its portrayal of Sheldon (Iain Armitage) and Missy (Raegan Revord). So stay tuned because we will give SPOILERS from the latest episode of the show’s sixth season.
Twins George (Lance Barber) and Mary (Zoe Perry) are busy trying to understand the series of changes in their home.
As their current arcs are now dictated by what’s going on with the rest of the family, Season 6 of Young Sheldon still finds a way to move forward with their personal stories. Including solving a growing problem with how they are presented in the series.
Series began to pay attention to this
In episode 2 of season 6 of Young Sheldon“Future Worf and the Margarita of the South Pacific“, Sheldon and Missy come up with ways to help their parents financially.
George and Mary lost their full-time jobs in the season 5 finale of Young Sheldon and while Mary has gotten work at the local bowling alley, George has yet to get another steady job outside of it doing part-time work with Dale (Craig T.Nelson).
In the course of your attempt to make money, the CBS incorporated some dialogue that addresses how much Sheldon and Missy have grown.
For wanting to keep it aloft, despite signs that the inevitable end of Young Sheldon is close, the network has been slowing down the passage of time in the series. So even though Iain Armitage and Raegan Revord are 14 in real life, they’re playing 12-year-olds in the movie. spin off in The Big Bang Theory. Something that is getting hard to maintain due to their respective puberty signs.
Sheldon’s voice, for example, has changed significantly. What was covered in episode 2 of season 6 of Young Sheldon, when Sheldon also recognized the change. He happily says that callers no longer mistake him for Mary when he picks up the phone.
Meanwhile, at the same time Missy was trying to get a job at the local comic book store, she was told that she must be 14 years old to be hired. To which she pointed out that, despite being younger, she actually looked that age.
Thus, Young Sheldon, admitting that the twins look older than their supposed ages, sends a message that despite all these biological changes, they are still 12 years old on the series. More importantly, this allows CBS a little more time to extend its narrative further.
What Adult Sheldon and Missy Mean to Young Sheldon
Before the season 6 premiere of Young Sheldon, executive producer Steve Holland has already confirmed that the current year will see Sheldon and Missy as full teens. That means CBS can continue to tackle more serious matters now that the youngest members of the Cooper family are no longer children.
Sheldon can handle more mature issues similar to Paige’s (McKenna Grace) Season 5 issues. Missy, on the other hand, can open up again to puppy love. Collectively, George and Mary no longer have to sugarcoat things for themselves when the family is dealing with something difficult.
Beyond that, however, Sheldon and Missy becoming teenagers is the biggest indication that George’s death is approaching. We can remember that the Cooper patriarch died when Sheldon was just 14 years old, based on his own recollection of The Big Bang Theory.
It is uncertain what the distant future will look like for Young Sheldon. For now, the family show is confirmed to run until season 7. This leaves plenty of time to further explore Sheldon and Missy as twins and individually.
Either way, the aging of the pair could be good for their narrative, as their plot could also evolve to become more complex as the Cooper twins grow older.
