The new project is a prequel spin-off of the network's juggernaut comedy series, The Big Bang Theory.

The series will follow super-smart 9-year-old Sheldon and his family as he attends high school in East Texas. Fellow Big Bang Theory co-creator Bill Prady is not attached to the prequel series.

Young Sheldon also stars Zoe Perry, Lance Barber, Raegan Revord and Montana Jordan.

Iron Man director Jon Favreau will executive-produce and direct the first episode.

The show will be narrated by Jim Parsons, and will star Iain Armitage as young Sheldon.


Are you excited for Young Sheldon and the chance to possibly see the origin of "Bazinga"? Barber is reportedly playing Sheldon's father, Revord his twin sister, and Jordan his older brother.

During Big Bang's 10-season run, many references have been made to Sheldon's childhood, growing up as a gifted youngster in Texas with a religious mother.

Chuck Lorre, Steven Molaro, Jim Parsons and Todd Spiewak will serve as executive producers of the series, from Chuck Lorre Productions, Inc.in association with Warner Bros.

Since CBS has ordered the show straight to series, there is no need for a pilot.

The Big Bang Theory is already at its tenth season, and with the contracts for the actors about to expire, the show may be close to its end. CBS did not say when or where the show will launch.
