We eagerly look forward to the next chapter in this beloved universe.”

Shortly after the news broke, Jordan weighed in on Instagram, writing: “Thank y’all for the support of Young Sheldon. I hope to deliver just what y’all are looking for in this new adventure!” Added Osment: “So thrilled to finally be able to celebrate this wonderful news I share with the best fake husband a girl could ask for….
