Annie Potts and Iain Armitage, stars of “Young Sheldon,” recently opened up about their feelings regarding the show’s cancellation after seven successful seasons. Speaking to Variety, Potts expressed her shock and dismay at the news, especially given the show’s immense popularity both on network TV and streaming platforms like Netflix. She described the decision as a “stupid business move” and admitted she felt completely unprepared for it.

Reflecting on the usual signs of a show winding down, Potts noted that there wasn’t the typical sense of decline or lack of stories leading up to the cancellation. Instead, she described feeling “ambushed” by the news, emphasizing the abruptness of the decision.

Armitage, who plays the young Sheldon Cooper, echoed Potts’ sentiments, expressing his belief that there was still plenty of potential for the show to explore. He shared his sadness at the thought of no longer working with Potts and the rest of the cast on a daily basis, highlighting the personal connections forged during their time together.

The decision to end “Young Sheldon” was announced by CBS in November, catching both the cast and fans off guard. Executive producers Steve Holland, Steven Molaro, and Chuck Lorre expressed gratitude to the show’s loyal fanbase for embracing the story of the Cooper family over the years.
