In the CBS series “Young Sheldon,” for 9-year-old Sheldon Cooper it isn’t easy growing up in East Texas. Being a once-in-a-generation mind capable of advanced mathematics and science isn’t always helpful in a land where church and football are king.

And while the vulnerable, gifted and somewhat naïve Sheldon deals with the world, his very normal family must find a way to deal with him. His father, George, is struggling to find his way as a high school football coach and as father to a boy he doesn’t understand. Sheldon’s mother, Mary, fiercely protects and nurtures her son in a town where he just doesn’t fit in. Sheldon’s older brother, Georgie, does the best he can in high school, but it’s tough to be cool when you’re in the same classes with your odd 9-year-old brother.

Sheldon’s twin sister, Missy, sometimes resents all the attention Sheldon gets, but also remains the one person who can reliably tell Sheldon the truth. Finally, there’s Sheldon’s beloved Meemaw, his foul-mouthed, hard-drinking Texas grandmother who is very supportive of her grandson and his unique gifts. For 10 years on “The Big Bang Theory,” audiences have come to know the iconic, eccentric and extraordinary Sheldon Cooper. This single-camera, half-hour comedy gives us the chance to meet him in childhood, as he embarks on his innocent, awkward and hopeful journey toward the man he will become.

“Young Sheldon” stars Iain Armitage (Sheldon), Zoe Perry (Mary), Lance Barber (George, Sr.), Annie Potts (Meemaw), Montana Jordan (Georgie), Raegan Revord (Missy), and Jim Parsons (Voice of Sheldon).

“Young Sheldon” is produced by Chuck Lorre Productions, Inc., in association with Warner Bros. Television. The series was created by Chuck Lorre and Steven Molaro. Chuck Lorre, Steven Molaro, Jim Parsons, and Todd Spiewak serve as executive producers. The comedy series is filmed in Los Angeles, Calif.
