It’s been no secret for the last few months that there was a spin off of The Big Bang Theory in the works, but it’s now official.

It was announced today that the show will be a prequel about the life of 9 year old Sheldon Cooper, an idiosyncratic and neurotic genius growing up in Texas. Jim Parsons has played the role of Sheldon Cooper since 2007 and will be narrating the show, which will be called Sheldon and will also be executive producer along with Big Bang Theory producers Bill Prady and Chuck Lorre. 

Laurie Metcalf who plays Sheldons mother on Big Bang Theory will not be reprising the role in Sheldon, but her real life daughter, Zoe Perry, will instead play the young Mary Cooper.

Iain Armitage who can now be seen playing Ziggy on the HBO miniseries Big Little Lies will be playing the role of Sheldon.

No official release date yet but it should premier sometime this fall. Will you be checking it out?
