Young Sheldon, the Big Bang Theory spinoff centered around, you guessed it, a young Sheldon, is officially going forward to debut the 2017-2018 season. Jon "I Want That Big Bang Money" Favreau will executive produce and direct the first episode. The show is created by Big Bang co-creator/executive producer Chuck Lorre & executive produce/showrunner Steven Molaro.

The series, narrated by Jim Parsons as his Big Bang character, adult Sheldon, is described as being in the vein of Malcolm in the Middle. It follows The Big Bang Theory's Sheldon Cooper (Iain Armitage) at the age of 9, living with his family in East Texas and going to high school. Lance Barber will play Sheldon's father, and Raegan Revord and Montana Jordan will play his siblings, joining previously cast Zoe Perry, who plays Sheldon's mom.

The series will be a single-camera sitcom, in the style of Malcolm in the Middle, following a 9-year-old Sheldon Cooper and his wacky antics in his hometown of Galveston, TX. Sheldon's family includes his twin sister Missy, his older brother George, and his alcoholic father George, who abandoned his family.

We previously reported that Young Sheldon will focus around a 12-year-old Sheldon, but CBS one upped us and lowered the age to 9, ensuring the show will be even more annoying.
