A still from 'Young Sheldon.' (CBS Entertainment/File)
Sheldon Cooper, one of the most lovable and obnoxious characters to recently conquer television, will be getting his own TV show focusing on his childhood as a 9-year-old boy genius in an unintelligent high school world.
The announcement for the spin-off series was announced earlier this year in March and will be starring Iain Armitage as the 9-year-old version of the smart-alecky theoretical physicist of “Big Bang Theory”.
It appears that the show will focus on young Sheldon’s challenges on being a very smart kid in high school, as well as his family life. We also get to meet the younger version of Sheldon’s twin sister Missy who appeared in the episode “”The Porkchop Indeterminacy” and was played by Courtney Henggeler.
The final scene of the clip shows that despite being as annoyingly obnoxious as ever, young Sheldon does learn a little bit of the social norms and proceeds to bond with his family, to a certain degree at least.
Watch out for the first episode of “Young Sheldon” which will premiere later this year.
