Here’s your first look at Big Little Lies star Iain Armitage as young Sheldon Cooper in Young Sheldon, a new show coming to CBS based off of Jim Parsons‘ The Big Bang Theory character.
The show will tell the story of Sheldon, a 9-year-old genius living with his family in East Texas and going to high school. 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.
Zoe Perry will star on the show as Mary, Sheldon’s mom.
