Default CBS' "Young Sheldon" (Season 2)

CBS has officially ordered Young Sheldon to series for the 2017-2018 TV season. Young Sheldon will be a prequel of sorts to The Big Bang Theory focusing on the 9-year-old genius Sheldon Cooper as he grows up in Texas. Jim Parsons, who plays Sheldon on TBBT, will be the narrator of the show, which will star Iain Armitage as young Sheldon. Armitage is currently on the HBO miniseries Big Little Lies. Zoe Perry will play Sheldon's mother. Perry is the daughter of Laurie Metcalf, who plays Sheldon's mother on TBBT.



Lance Barber will play Sheldon’s father, and Raegan Revord and Montana Jordan will play his siblings. The first episode will be directed by Jon Favreau.

Be interesting to see if the kid will be able to pull off Sheldon's mannerisms.

This sounds truly awful. Though the casting of Laurie Metcalf's real-life daughter as his mom is pretty cool.

This won't go well. Sheldon was funny in bursts as he played off of other characters, but his (and his mom's) personality by nature is aggravating. There's only so much narcissism that can be had before it becomes annoying. To have a show all about him will be overkill and overbearing.

It'd be like if they made a FRIENDS spin-off with nothing but Joey.

On the plus side, Jon Favreau's directing. Might make an okay pilot.

No doubt I will check it out, since I love The Big Bang Theory, but I'm not crazy about it being a single-camera show. I would have preferred a traditional sitcom to keep the style of TBBT.

I've only seen a handful of TBBT and didn't think it was at all funny, so I'm not watching this... but is it actually needed? Like, is there some kind of backstory everybody needs to see or are they just trying to milk the franchise for more money?

What is going on with Hollywood ? Are they deliberately trying to release garbage ?

If I wanted to see a little kid rip on everything, I'd prefer an Al Bundy prequel...although we're about 25-30 years late for that.

I used to love TBBT but a show centered entirely around Young Sheldon doesn't sound that great. Plus, the writers of TBBT have had some issues with continuity in the past and I feel this show could be plagued with that

I still think TBBT is the best sitcom on TV, but fully agree on the rest.
