Young Sheldon Season 7: Reba McEntire Returns with Melissa Peterman

Will Reba McEntire grace us with her presence on “Young Sheldon” before the show wraps up in May? That’s the burning question. Steve Holland, the executive producer, is crossing his fingers.

“Related Stories” pops up, teasing us with juicy tidbits. Like, did you know “Young Sheldon” just cracked a “Big Bang Theory” mystery wide open? And there’s chatter about a big reunion. Jim Parsons and Mayim Bialik are coming back for the finale. How cool is that?

“We’d absolutely love to have her back,” says Holland to TVLine. But, it’s not a done deal. Reba’s juggling a lot right now, including another sitcom pilot and her role on “The Voice.” Timing is everything, and it’s a bit up in the air.

Imagine ending “Young Sheldon” without a Reba and Melissa Peterman (Brenda Sparks) reunion. Holland gets it. He wants it too. It’s all about making the schedules work.

Ads pop up, but let’s skip those.

Remember when McEntire first showed up in Season 3? She played June Ballard, Dale’s ex. She’s been in a handful of episodes but missed Season 6, now on Netflix.

There was this one episode in Season 4. Brenda got a haircut, channeling Reba Hart vibes. Yet, June and Brenda never crossed paths. Missed opportunity?

Holland shared in a previous chat that Melissa Peterman is keen on sharing scenes with Reba. Their friendship is a big reason why Reba joined the show. Melissa made sure the producers knew Reba was a fan.

“Young Sheldon” airs Thursdays on CBS. The one-hour series finale is set for May 16. It promises a “Big Bang” reunion with Jim Parsons and Mayim Bialik. Next season, get ready for a Georgie-and-Mandy spinoff.

So, are you hoping Reba McEntire returns as June Ballard? It would be a sweet nod before the “Big Bang Theory” prequel bows out.

And hey, there’s a spinoff in the works for Georgie and Mandy. Curious? There’s a list with all the details.
