“The Big Bang Theory” spans 12 seasons and chronicles some of the biggest events in Sheldon’s adult life, like his relationship with and subsequent marriage to Amy Farrah Fowler (Mayim Bialik) and the couple winning a Nobel Prize. The prequel series covers a very different time in Sheldon’s life, but one no less important or interesting.

“Young Sheldon” fans are introduced to the titular character in 1989 when he is 9-years-old and follow along on his journey as he attends high school as pre-teen before starting college at age 11. Sheldon will be 14 when the series ends. This is a really important age for him in the “TBBT” universe. Not only does he graduate from college and head to California, but it’s how old Sheldon is when his dad dies.

Based on the canon timeline, George is expected to die sometime between the end of February and the beginning of September if it happens before Sheldon starts at Caltech. The creators of “Young Sheldon” have promised the show will follow through with this storyline. “I don’t want to say what you will or won’t see, but things will get addressed. We are not beholden to every joke that was ever made on The Big Bang Theory, but we do feel beholden to the larger canon and the larger events that shape Sheldon’s life. We want to honor those,” executive producer Steve Holland confirmed to TVLine. With only a few episodes left to go before the series finale, this tragic storyline is coming up quickly.
