Some Young Sheldon fans might be upset about the coming changes, but stars of the sequel have now addressed the “completely different” choices.

Ever since the Young Sheldon sequel — focusing on Georgie and Mandy‘s home life — was announced by CBS, fans have had their doubts, particularly thanks to reports that the show will be filmed in a multi-cam format.

For fans of The Big Bang Theory, this shouldn’t feel too different from the main series, but the single-cam Young Sheldon begs to differ. After continued fan outrage, stars Montana Jordan and Emily Osment have addressed the upcoming changes to the Young Sheldon sequel.

“It’s just a completely different experience and a completely different form of comedy,” Osment explained to TVLine about filming in multi-cam format. “I’ve paid my dues with multi-cam… it’s so fun and my favorite part of that is the live audience.

“As much as we love our Young Sheldon crew — they’re all wonderful people to work around because they all laugh and they make us feel great — there’s something different about actually performing for people that are there to watch you.”

Osmet also said that she’s “excited” for Young Sheldon co-star Montana Jordan to experience working in a multi-cam format, something he currently has no experience with.

“It’s something I’ve never done before so it’s something I need to get used to,” added Jordan.

The pair also hint that baby Cece may no longer be a baby in the Young Sheldon sequel, with the multi-cam format perhaps fast-tracking her age to toddler status.

“Logistically, I’ve never worked with a newborn with a live audience,” Osment stated. “I think that could be tricky. I think toddler age is funny — but we’ll have to see.”

Young Sheldon Season 7 continues on CBS until May 16, 2024. Make sure to catch up with plenty more great TV shows to stream this month.
