Fans of Supergirl know we met Winn’s (Jeremy Jordan) father in 2016 and now it’s time to meet his mother. This season, The Big Bang Theory’s Laurie Metcalf (a.k.a. Sheldon’s mom) will guest star on the superhero series.
Laurie Metcalf will star as the tech-savvy super friend’s estranged mother who visits us on the 15th episode of the CW drama. The show will not air until 2018, so there’s lots of time to catch up on Supergirl.
According to Vanity Fair, Metcalf took the role because her youngest daughter is a big fan of the show and loves Supergirl, Melissa Benoist.
Laurie Metcalf To Star On ‘Supergirl’
Aside from Supergirl, we’re likely going to see Laurie Metcalf a lot more in the next two seasons of The Big Bang Theory. As Sheldon Cooper and Amy Farrah Fowler prepare to get married, we’re also going to need to meet the in-laws.
Sheldon has already told his Texas mother that the wedding won’t be traditional, but it’s likely she’ll get her way on one or two items. As Amy starts to plan the wedding, we hope to see some comical moments between the two women in Sheldon Cooper’s life.
Hopefully, Amy will win over Sheldon’s mom the way that Penny eventually won over Leonard’s mom.
Sheldon’s Mom Meets Amy Farrah Fowler
At first glance, it would appear that Sheldon’s mom would truly love Amy. She dresses conservatively, and she’s good for Sheldon. If nothing else, she’s helping him move forward and live a normal life, despite his genius mind.
The only problem that Sheldon’s mom is going to have will revolve around the duo not being religious later in life. Sheldon’s mom can pray and pray, but it’s unlikely that her son and future daughter will ever turn to the church.
Instead, they’re going to do their best to live a good life and hopefully can pray for them. We always look forward to seeing comical moments with the gang and Sheldon’s mom, played by Laurie Metcalf.
When she’s not playing this Texas Christian, we can also look for her to star on the Roseanne reboot. On the original version, she played Aunt Jackie, alongside her fellow co-star Johnny Galecki, who played David.
