Raegan Revord, who has played fan-favorite character Missy Cooper on “Young Sheldon” for the past 7 years, posted an emotional reaction on Instagram to the recent news that the hit CBS show will end after its upcoming 14-episode final season.
In the post, Revord expressed her profound gratitude for the “life changing” opportunity to be part of the beloved Big Bang Theory franchise, while also admitting how difficult it will be to film these final episodes knowing the show is ending.
“I will say more later, but right now I am feeling so so heartbroken, but also so grateful. Playing Missy Cooper for the past 7 years and getting so be a part of this beloved franchise has been life changing,” Revord wrote. “Filming these last 14 episodes will be so hard, but I am excited to get to opportunity to share this story with the fans and our Young Sheldon family.”
Revord went on to quote showrunner Steve Molaro, who apparently shared a quote from Winnie the Pooh with the cast upon breaking the cancellation news: “How lucky am I to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.”
“It truly is how I feel about this show, the family I’ve made and the people I’ve met because of it,” Revord added.
The prequel series to The Big Bang Theory has been a rating success since premiering in 2017. While fans will certainly miss “Young Sheldon,” Revord’s heartfelt words are a touching reminder of how much the show has meant to its talented cast and crew.
After 6 successful seasons, CBS announced earlier this week that the show’s upcoming 7th season will be its last. The final season will consist of 14 episodes and conclude with a special one-hour series finale airing on May 16, 2024. This news was not entirely surprising, as the current season 7 renewal was part of a 3-year pickup made in 2021.
