Young Sheldon Series Order - Jon Favreau Directs Big Bang Theory Prequel

Katie RamirezMar 15, 2017

She's the daughter of Emmy-winner Laurie Metcalf ("Roseanne"), who plays Sheldon's very religious mother Mary living in Houston on "Big Bang Theory".

A full series of episodes is poised to air during the 2017-18 TV season and will see Iain Armitage star as the young Sheldon, whose older incarnation has previously been played by Jim Parsons.

CBS' "The Big Bang Theory" is still going strong, but CBS is moving on to another project called "Young Sheldon". The story will begin when the Caltech genius is 9 years old.

Jim and his partner Todd Spiewak are executive producing the series with Chuck Lorre and Steven Molaro.

The Big Bang Theory is now in its tenth season and has become both the biggest comedy and most-watched show on United States television.

The 9-year-old rising star appeared in Steve Harvey's Big Shots, and is now starring on Sky Atlantic's Big Little Lies, alongside Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon and Shailene Woodley. Parsons will narrate the comedy as Adult Sheldon. Barber will play Sheldon's good ol' boy father. "That will be the show probably on right after Big-Bang". Instead, it will be shot with a single-camera style akin to that of Malcolm in the Middle - only with a younger Sheldon as a lead. Armitage has shown the acting chops to portray the socially awkward but arrogant Sheldon Cooper as he struggles to fit in High School as well as his overly religious Texas Family. I'm a huge "Big Bang" fan, but I don't think I'll bother watching this one. If the cast members' offer will be approved, the actress will receive $450,000 per episode in Seasons 11 and 12. More information, including castings, trailers and a premiere date, are expected to be released over the next few weeks as the show enters into production.
