Exciting news for Young Sheldon fans!
The CBS series has officially been picked up for two more seasons, the network announced on Friday (February 22).
The single-camera comedy – a prequel to The Big Bang Theory – follows 10-year-old child genius Sheldon Cooper (Iain Armitage) as he tries to fit in with his family and classmates in East Texas.
Young Sheldon is the second most-watched comedy behind Big Bang, Variety reports.
Big Bang, meanwhile, will air its series finale this spring after 12 seasons.
“The Coopers are portrayed by an amazing cast, and we are looking forward to having the gifted writing staff mine even more of Sheldon’s hilarious backstory and the warm family dynamic that has made this comedy a favorite with audiences for the past two seasons,” said Thom Sherman, senior executive vice president of programming for CBS Entertainment.
