Bazinga! It's a crossover only Sheldon and Leonard can explain: Young Sheldon will cross paths with The Big Bang Theory. The space-time continuum will bed at the will of Sheldon Cooper.

Details about the crossover, which will see Young Sheldon's young Sheldon, Iain Armitage, his TV dad Lance Barber and TV bro Montana Jordan appear in character on The Big Bang Theory. How do they get there? That is the question only Sheldon Cooper can answer. Dream? An experiment gone awry?

The crossover was bound to happen with Big Bang Theory in its 12th and final season.
