YOUNG SHELDON is a comedy about 9-year-old Sheldon Cooper (Iain Armitage), who finds it isn’t easy growing up in East Texas.

Zoe Perry, Lance Barber, Annie Potts, Raegan Revord and Montana Jordan also star. THE BIG BANG THEORY’s multiple Emmy Award winner Jim Parsons narrates the comedy as adult Sheldon.
