The Big Bang Theory spinoff prequel on Sheldon Cooper is ending with its upcoming seventh season, also marking the return of Mandy McAllister (played by Osment) and Mandy's mum Audrey, portrayed by The Good Doctor's Rachel Bay Jones.

Osment posted a since-expired picture of her and Jones hanging out on set to her Instagram Stories with the caption "working our butts off".

Jones first joined Young Sheldon during its sixth season together with Will Sasso, who plays Mandy's father Jim, though there's no word as to whether Sasso will also make an appearance in the new batch of episodes.

Meanwhile, the new season will feature Mckenna Grace and Wyatt McClure, returning in their respective roles of Paige Swanson and Billy Sparks for the grand finale.

Young Sheldon is led by Iain Armitage, who plays the younger version of the character portrayed by Jim Parsons on TBBT. Commenting on the spinoff coming to an end, Armitage looked back on his first days on set by posting a sweet snap with co-stars Raegan Revord and Montana Jordan.
