Trailer : The Young Sheldon

Trailer : The Young Sheldon

CBS gave us our first look at Young Sheldon at CBS's upfront presentation Wednesday, the Big Bang Theory prequel centering around one of the sitcom's most distinctive characters.

Played expertly by Jim Parsons in "The Big Bang Theory", young Sheldon is nearly alarmingly similar as portrayed by Iain Armitage in the new series. The series starts in 1989 and follows him as a begins high school at age 9. His parents, twin sister and older brother are slightly tired of the Sheldon and treat him the same way that we see his present day roommate Leonard treat him with. Though his mother Mary (Zoe Perry) works really hard to be his advocate, protector and translator, even she doesn't totally know what to do with him, especially regarding his disregard for religion. Intellectually, he's perhaps overqualified for 9th grade, but socially he's completely incompetent. And Sheldon doesn't get along with his older brother George Jr. We also get to see his father George Cooper (Lance Barber), as well as his siblings played by Raegan Revord and Montana Jordan.

The Big Bang Theory has now been on the air for 10 years, and remains one of TV's most popular shows. Jim Parsons is also an executive producer with his partner in production and love Todd Spiewak.




"Young Sheldon" is a single-camera comedy, resulting in a show that's both aesthetically and tonally different from "Big Bang Theory", which is a mutli-cam series.

Young Sheldon has hints of late-80s nostalgia, and your feelings on the show will probably depend on how you feel about Big Bang Theory and Sheldon Cooper himself, who is rather polarizing among viewers and geeks.
