Although officially it doesn’t exist The Big Bang Theory spinoff is moving forward with casting announcements.
Iain Armitage (Big Little Lies) has been cast as a young Sheldon Cooper alongside Zoe Perry who will play Mary Cooper Sheldon’s mother. The spinoff is described as single-camera family comedy centered on the child prodigy Sheldon (Armitage) character at age 10. He lives in Texas with his older brother George, fraternal twin sister (Missy), their mother Mary Cooper (Perry), an overtly devout Evangelical Christian; and father George Cooper, an alcoholic who was never around.
There are still ongoing discussions going on around the project between CBS and WBTV which means that the show has yet to be formally announced.
