Young Sheldon Star Confirms George Dies In The Big Bang Theory Prequel

Young Sheldon actress Raegan Revord, who plays Missy, confirms that George will indeed die sometime soon on The Big Bang Theory prequel.

Young Sheldon star Raegan Revord confirms that George (Lance Barber) will eventually meet his end on The Big Bang Theory prequel. In an effort for CBS to capitalize on the popularity of the geek-centric sitcom, the network launched its first and only spin-off. Young Sheldon, as the title implies, revolves around the life of Sheldon Cooper while he was still living in Texas with his family. Given that, it only makes sense that the rest of the Cooper family plays a major role in the sitcom.

Unlike all of his other family members, Sheldon’s dad never appeared on The Big Bang Theory, because he was long dead before the show even began. Despite that, fans learned a lot about him, thanks to the socially-inept genius’ stories. Up until this point, there’s confusion as to why Sheldon described his dad so harshly in the original show when he’s a fairly decent dad on Young Sheldon. Nevertheless, Sheldon’s stories pretty much gave his dad a death sentence in the offshoot, revealing that when he was 13, he accidentally walked in on him having sex with another woman. The next year, George died without ever discussing the awkward incident with his son.

Young Sheldon has tried to dance around George’s downfall for a while now. So while it was established on The Big Bang Theory, some fans have been wondering if the prequel will follow the progression of events as told in the original sitcom. Now, however, on the heels of Missy and George’s heartwarming bonding on Young Sheldon season 5, episode 15, “A Lobster, an Armadillo and a Way Bigger Number,” Revord pretty much confirms that the Cooper patriarch’s death is coming.

Despite Sheldon’s story about his dad’s death, he never really got into specifics about how it was for the rest of his family. Georgie (Jerry O’Connell) shared on The Big Bang Theory that after their dad died, he had to step up and take care of his mom and sister, because Mary (Laurie Metcalf) was so consumed with grief. This was the reason why he got so mad at Sheldon for never appreciating his sacrifices for the family. But, there hasn’t been any word about how George’s death affected Missy, considering that she was the closest to their dad as evidenced by their many outings on Young Sheldon. Even when she appeared on the original sitcom, she didn’t really talk about her dad; she specifically didn’t mercilessly rag on him as her twin and mom did.

As Revord said, it’s safe to say that it would be heartbreaking to watch Missy deal with the death of George. The pair’s relationship at the start of Young Sheldon season 5 was quite shaky, because they were dealing with their respective problems. At one point, Missy even lashed out at her dad for inadvertently meddling with her love life. Luckily, Young Sheldon gave them the opportunity to bond, and hopefully, there are more of these moments moving forward before the Cooper patriarch meets his end.
