No surprises here.
The Big Bang Theory spinoff Young Sheldon is going to series -if there is any surprise it is that CBS will skip a Pilot entirely.
Iain Armitage, currently appearing on Big Little Lies, will play young Sheldon Cooper, while Jim Parsons is narrator and an executive producer.
The cast includes Zoe Perry (The Family) as Sheldon’s mother, Lance Barber (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia) as his dad and Raegan Revord and Montana Jordan as his sister and brother.
The single-camera show, reportedly aiming for something akin to Malcolm in the Middle in terms of tone, is created by Chuck Lorre and current showrunner Steven Molaro.
Young Sheldon is now set for the 2017-18 Fall season.
