    Why Adult Sheldon Is Narrating 'Young Sheldon'

    From Redditor u/blazecoolman:

    Okay, so I have been watching Young Sheldon lately and I love the show. I was thinking of the reason why adult Sheldon would be narrating Young Sheldon in the way he does it.

    After a round of binge-watching, I realized that the narrative style is very autobiographical and I theorize that the string theory (particle symmetry?) idea that Sheldon and Amy recently published and became famous for The Big Bang Theory goes to on win some major prize, possibly a Nobel Prize in Physics.

    It is obvious that Sheldon is narrating his childhood at least a few years down the road from where we are on in Season 12 of BBT, due to his reference of his children at the Season 1 finale of Young Sheldon.

    Sheldon being Sheldon, it would take something major for him to sit down and work on an autobiography and I think it would be really cool if he won a Nobel Prize for his work since that fully completes his character arc and gives him everything that he always wanted in life.
