Young Sheldon, a spin-off and prequel to The Big Bang Theory, recently concluded with its seventh season, with the finale seeing Jim Parsons reprise his role as the idiosyncratic theoretical physicist.

Despite returning to play the character, Parsons recently dampened the prospect of inhabiting the role again, saying: “Look, never say never to anything. Life is long, God willing. But I don't think so.”

“It was very, very special to do that,” he added in regards to his cameo appearance. “The feeling today is kind of odd, you know? It's the second time now, because when we ended The Big Bang Theory, it felt like this, too. A little bit different.

“You shoot that final episode and it's wrapped for you, and then a couple of months later, it wraps for the rest of the world and it's a very weird feeling to flood over you again like that.”

Young Sheldon airs on CBS in the US and E4 in the UK, while you can buy The Big Bang Theory complete boxset now on DVD and Blu-ray.
