Channel 4 has confirmed it’s to screen The Big Bang Theory spin-off and prequel, Young Sheldon which follows the life of a 9-year-old Sheldon Cooper “as he struggles to be understood by his family, classmates and neighbours.”
The thirteen part series will air on E4 next year and stars Iain Armitage (Big Little Lies), Zoe Perry (Scandal, The Family, Grey’s Anatomy), Lance Barber (The Comeback, Black-ish, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia), Annie Potts(GCB, Designing Women, Love & War) Montana Jordan and Raegan Revord(Modern Family, Grace and Frankie).
Jim Parsons narrates as Adult Sheldon.
For 9-year-old Sheldon Cooper, it isn’t easy growing up in East Texas. Being a once-in-a generation mind capable of advanced mathematics and science isn’t always helpful in a land where church and football are king.
And while the vulnerable, gifted and somewhat naïve young Sheldon deals with the world, his very normal family must find a way to deal with him!
