It’s unclear what lies ahead for Constance at this point except for the idea that she will be treated the same way. The Big Bang Theory approached Howard and Bernadette’s kids.
speaking with tv lineHolland is asked if they will not show Constance’s face in Young Sheldon as they did with Hallie and Michael Wolowitz in the nerd-centric sitcom. The executive producer explains why they cannot do this in The Big Bang Theory prequel, and it has something to do with the show’s storytelling. Read his full quote below:
We can’t get away with that on this show! As much as I wasn’t looking forward to it, we’ve had a lot of babies on set the last few months. We shot the first episode with a baby before Christmas, then there was the holiday break, then we couldn’t use that same baby because the next episode took place immediately following [the next] one, and that baby was now a month older. With a newborn, a month is a lot, so we’ve got lots of babies coming in. I was worried about it, but honestly the babies have been great. It’s been kind of fun to shoot with them…knock on wood! That can go wrong at any moment!
What Constance’s Arrival Means For Young Sheldon Season 6
Despite existing in the same reality, there are so many inconsistencies between Young Sheldon and the nerd-centric sitcom. For starters, neither Mandy nor Constance is ever mentioned in The Big Bang Theory, raising questions about their whereabouts in the future. While this is a problem for continuity, it also has upsides because it means that CBS has a bigger creative wiggle room when developing Georgie and his growing family’s arc.

Meanwhile, it’s also safe to say that her birth will force Mandy and Georgie to finally figure out what their future will look like.
beyond Young Sheldon Season 6, however, it’s hard to say what will happen to Mandy and Constance. As Holland said, it’s difficult to get away with not showing the baby’s face in the family comedy because she is expected to play a big part in the narrative, unlike Howard and Bernadette’s kids in The Big Bang Theory, The recently released Young Sheldon season 6 episode 15 trailer backs this up as it shows her immediate impact on her parents’ relationship
