Georgie & Mandy's First Marriage Will Bring Back Two Key Young Sheldon Actors

It looks like Georgie Cooper Jr. (Montana Jordan) and Mandy McCallister (Emily Osment) are going to bring a little bit of home with them as they move out on their own to raise a family. Deadline reports that "Mad TV" veteran Will Sasso and Rachel Bay Jones, who have played Mandy's parents, Jim and Audrey McAllister, on and off on "Young Sheldon" since Season 6, will have regular supporting roles on "Georgie and Mandy's First Marriage." Audrey's well known for being so overbearing toward her daughter that fans cheered when Mary (Zoe Perry) stood up for Mandy in a show of familial loyalty in Season 7, Episode 11. Jim, meanwhile, is far more easygoing and has become a "Young Sheldon" audience favorite.

They'll be the only characters so far besides Georgie and Mandy themselves who'll make the transition between the two sitcoms — aside, of course, from Mandy and Georgie's daughter, Constance, aka CeeCee. But that won't be the only big change coming to the twosome and their family when their spin-off show arrives.

Georgie and Mandy's First Marriage will be a multi-cam sitcom

Per TVLine, it looks like "Georgie and Mandy's First Marriage" will take the franchise back to its roots from "The Big Bang Theory." Instead of being a single-camera comedy sans live studio viewers, it will be a multi-cam sitcom performed before a live audience.

Emily Osment, who has much experience in working before a gathering of ticketed viewers after co-starring in sitcoms like "Hannah Montana," "Pretty Smart" — the sitcom that had Netflix subscribers falling in love for a while – and "Young & Hungry," told TVLine about returning to working in front of a live audience as opposed to performing with just a crew and one's fellow actors on set. "It's just a completely different experience, just a completely different form of comedy," she said. "My favorite part of that is the live audience and feeling like you're doing a new play every week. There's something different about actually performing in front of people who are there to actually watch you perform."

Montana Jordan, meanwhile, has never tried this particular brand of acting before, and he admitted it's something he needs to acclimate himself to. Viewers will see how quickly he gets used to it when "Georgie and Mandy's First Marriage" takes over its predecessor's timeslot this fall.
