Big Bang Theory Spin-Off Set for 2017 Premier
CBS has finalized the deal for a spin-off of "The Big bang Theory", titled "Young Sheldon", which will air for the 2017-2018 season.
The show will be narrated by Jim Parsons, and will star Iain Armitage as young Sheldon. Lance Barber will play Sheldon's father, Zoe Perry will play Sheldon's mom, and Raegan Revord and Montana Jordan will play his siblings. It will focus on his life while living in Texas as a child.
Jim Parsons came up with the idea for the spin-off, and will executive produce alongside Chuck Lorre, Steven Molaro, and Todd Spiewak. The first episode will be directed, as well as executive produced, by Jon Favreau.
CBS Corp. CEO Leslie Moonves said the show will most likely be aired after The Big Bang Theory, providing the show gets renewed, which is said to almost be a done deal.
