What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the CBS television network, Young Sheldon stars Iain Armitage, Zoe Perry, Lance Barber, Annie Potts, Montana Jordan, and Raegan Revord, with Jim Parsons narrating. The single-camera sitcom comes from creators Chuck Lorre and Steven Molaro. The Big Bang Theory prequel unfolds in 1989 and centers on Sheldon Cooper (Armitage), when he was just a nine-year-old boy. Surviving childhood in an East Texas outpost — one dedicated to all things faith and football — will be no mean feat for this unique genius and his otherwise ordinary family.
Season One Ratings

Flying blind, my famished gut says this prequel to The Big Bang Theory will — like the original series — mock my hunger and score an early second season renewal. For now though, I’ll keep a hungry eye on the ratings and update this page with breaking developments. Subscribe for free updates on any Young Sheldon cancellation or renewal news.
