The popular sitcom 'Young Sheldon' has captured the hearts of viewers as they followed the young genius Sheldon Cooper on his quirky and heartwarming journey through childhood. We've seen him navigate family dynamics, pursue his passion for science, and ultimately begin his academic career at the prestigious California Institute of Technology (Caltech).

Despite the potential for further exploration of Sheldon's life at Caltech, producer Steve Molaro has confirmed in an interview with 'Glamour' that a Caltech-centered spinoff is officially off the table. Fans that were eager to see Sheldon's adaptation to a new environment away from his family and friends are left wondering what could have been. Molaro cites the show's current focus on the characters' healing from the loss of George, Sheldon's father, as a reason for not pursuing the spinoff.

 “I would not have been comfortable digging in on Sheldon at Caltech.    Now it’s really trying to be a weird pre-Big Bang.    That doesn’t get me excited.    Like, there’s the cafeteria set, but he hasn’t met Leonard yet.    I don’t know.    Weird.”

As for why they decided to end the series where they did in the first place, despite its huge ongoing success, showrunner Steve Holland revealed: “It felt like (a) good to go out on top.

  And (b) as we talked about it, sort of post-strike going into that last season, whether was there a future?

“We knew that George Sr. had to die, we knew that Sheldon had to go off to Caltech, and it just started to feel like you didn’t want to do the asterisk season.   You didn’t want to do the Happy Days without Richie season.   Those characters are all great, but to be back in that house where there’s no George and no Sheldon.   This is going to be as good as it has been.   It felt like we would’ve been doing it because we liked this world and this cast.   We would’ve been doing it for selfish reasons, and not for what was the best thing for the show.”
