A Meemaw Like No Other

Young Sheldon launched in 2017, three years before The Big Bang Theory ended, with all members of the Cooper family seeking out new ways to many this clearly gifted child – usually in hilarious fashion. While Sheldon shares unique bonds with all members of his family, the one he shares with his Meemaw (Annie Potts) is special. As filming on the popular family series begins, Armitage took to Instagram to share a heart-warming message for his on-screen Meemaw as we head towards the final season. It reads in part, “It has been a joy being Moonpie to Ms Annie’s MeeMaw. Season One I was delighted to discover that we were neighbors who both lived near the studio. It felt like having a relative who lived right down the street. Ms Annie is always up for adventures and capers. When I was little we would go on walks and she’d let me put the bugs I collected in her pockets. That’s just the kind of MeeMaw she is…. She’s one of my very favorite people! ❤️It’s all been a dream, MeeMaw!

The final season of Young Sheldon arrives on February 15, 2024.
