Young Sheldon’s story will continue to be told at CBS even if the original The Big Bang Theory arrives in the spring after 12 seasons on-air. The representatives of the station announced the renewal of the title with two new seasons, 3 and 4, respectively, joining the same title signed by Chuck Lorre, Mom, who previously received a similar order.
With an average rating of approx. 14.5 million viewers and considered to be the next comedy # 1, Young Sheldon is currently the second most watched sitcom from CBS, with The Big Bang Theory being the first.
The new CBS comedy starred young Sheldon Cooper, the new adventures showing him alongside his family in East Texas as well as moments of his high school life at the age of just nine. For a boy who manages to find meaning for everything, Sheldon has difficulty understanding his religious and loving football family. The episodes feature narrator Jim Parsons, Cooper’s interpreter in TBBT.
