Big Bang Theory
Young Sheldon Finally Brings Back Jim Parsons’ Narration (But With A Twist)
After weeks of absence, Young Sheldon season 6 finally brings back Jim Parsons' pivotal narration, but there's a caveat to its return.
Jim Parsons’ narration returns in Young Sheldon season 6, episode 18, but there’s a catch. As part of CBS’ attempt at taking advantage of The Big Bang Theory‘s popularity, the spin-off functions as the origins story for Sheldon Cooper. Focusing on his infamous childhood in Texas, Young Sheldon also features the rest of the Cooper family. While the prequel now gives each family member their respective storylines, the show previously prioritized offering explanations for some of Sheldon’s oddest quirks. To emphasize its ties to its parent series, each Young Sheldon episode also originally featured the voice of Parson as adult Sheldon.
