Given that Lorre still has Big Bang Theory, and that his comedy Mom is expected to be renewed for a second season, Young Sheldon will be his third series that is now on CBS.
What's more, "Jungle Book" director Jon Favreau is set to exec produce and direct the first episode!
After almost 10 seasons on CBS, numerous Emmy Awards wins, and untold millions of dollars, The Big Bang Theory is now getting a pint-sized prequel series spin-off, Young Sheldon.
The Big Bang Theory has been one of the top sitcoms on television since it debuted and with a cast of characters that are all equally interesting, it makes sense that CBS would be interested in potential spin-off series.
Jim will also act as an executive producer on "Young Sheldon", with child actor Iain Armitage nabbing the lead role. Showrunners at CBS, however, are already preparing to get more out of the franchise, and they've greenlit a spin-off series focusing on a young Sheldon Cooper before he was roommates with Leonard Hofstadter.
As previously reported, 9-year-old Iain Armitage will play the boy genius, and Zoe Perry will play his mother Mary.
When The Big Bang Theory started Sheldon was colder than ice and his personality wasn't "human" at all. It's the first pickup of a new show for CBS this development season.
Another key detail is that Parsons will narrate the show as "Adult Sheldon". Interestingly the actress' real-life mother Lauri Metcalf plays Sheldon's present-day on Big Bang.
The new series, Young Sheldon, will follow the boy Cooper as he grows up in deepest Texas. Not because of his acting ability (the kid is genuinely pretty good) but more because he's only NINE years old! Considering that the upcoming comedy was actually the brainchild of Lorre, there is a pretty good chance that the new comedy would be just as amusing as the Big Bang Theory. CBS is targeting a premiere during the upcoming 2017-2018 primetime season.
New additional cast members have been added to the half-hour series.
