Default Young Sheldon (Season 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, Star Cast, All Episodes)



Story, About
It's 1989 and 9-year-old Sheldon Cooper has skipped four grades to start high school along with his less-intellectual older brother. As he struggles to be understood by his family, classmates and neighbours, his mother arms him with the best tool she can come up with: reminding bullies his dad is the football coach and his brother is on the team. His twin sister doesn't share his exceptional mind, but she has a much clearer vision of what life has in store for the young genius. Jim Parsons, who plays the adult version of Sheldon on "The Big Bang Theory (2007)," narrates.

Unknown Facts/Interesting Facts
  • Zoe Perry is the real life daughter of Laurie Metcalf from The Big Bang Theory (2007). Over 20 years earlier she also played the younger version of her mother in episodes 5.7, Roseanne: Halloween IV (1992), and 7.19, Roseanne: All About Rosey (1995) of Roseanne (1988). Now she again plays a younger version of her mother's character over 20 years later.
  • Lance Barber, who plays George Cooper Sr, is the same actor who played Jimmy Speckerman, Leonard's (Johnny Galecki) high school bully in one episode of The Big Bang Theory (2007) in 2011
  • Iain Armitage (Young Sheldon) said he was committed to his role of Sheldon thanks to Jim Parsons (Adult Sheldon) coaching him and explaining who Sheldon is.
  • The pilot finally explains why Sheldon (Jim Parsons) doesn't have a Texas drawl. In narration, he explains that he switched to a mid-Atlantic accent because people with Texan accents "don't win Nobel prizes", despite this being inaccurate.
  • Annie Potts cites Dolly Parton as the basis for her performance and depiction of Meemaw.
  • In The Big Bang Theory (2007), Sheldon (Jim Parsons) has revealed that his father died when he was fourteen. Therefore Lance Barber, who plays George Snr, could potentially have to leave the series in as few as five years.
  • The idea of the show first came to Jim Parsons. At first, he did not discuss it with Chuck Lorre because he thought that Lorre must have considered it before. But when Jim finally consulted him, Chuck liked the idea and had not thought about it before.
  • In The Big Bang Theory (2007), episode 4.18, The Big Bang Theory: The Prestidigitation Approximation (2011) Sheldon (Jim Parsons) makes reference to when he was a child, and got into trouble with Federal agents after shopping for uranium to generate electricity. What happens is shown in this series, in episode 1.2 Young Sheldon: Rockets, Communists, and the Dewey Decimal System (2017).
  • Steve Burns, the writer & performer of the theme song, is Steve from Blue's Clues (1996).
  • Premiered just one day after the 10th anniversary of its parent series The Big Bang Theory (2007).
  • Meemaw's house is the same "house" used as the "Partridge Family" house located on the Warner Bros. Ranch back lot. The major change is the addition of the front porch.
  • Each episode's name in the first season contains three random things that happen in said episode. In the second season, this would be reduced to two things.
  • The show's intro is a parody of Walker, Texas Ranger (1993).
  • The series begins in 1989, when Sheldon Cooper (played by Iain Armitage) is nine years old. Parsons was around 16, around the same age as the high school students.
  • In The Big Bang Theory (2007) Mary (Laurie Metcalf) describes Missy (Raegan Revord) & George Jnr (Montana Jordan) as "dumb as soup."
  • Melissa Tang, who stars in the role of Ms. Fenley, appeared in Season 9 Episode 1, The Big Bang Theory: The Matrimonial Momentum (2015), of The Big Bang Theory (2007) as marine biologist Mandy Chow.
  • Billy Sparks, the school yard bully played by Wyatt McClure, is talked about twice in The Big Bang Theory (2007), in episodes 3.5, The Big Bang Theory: The Creepy Candy Coating Corollary (2009), and 5.12, The Big Bang Theory: The Shiny Trinket Maneuver (2012).
  • Dan Harmon (co-creator of Rick and Morty (2013)) had a small part to play in the writing of Young Sheldon.
  • At least one episode opening per season is slightly different from the usual opening of Sheldon walking up, taking a superhero stance, then moving over slightly due to an approaching cow. In season one, a tumbleweed rolls by, making him jump out of the way. In season two, the camera does a 360 around him.
  • Sheldon's "meemaw" (grandmother)'s name is revealed, via a PA system announcement at the bowling alley she frequents: Connie Tucker.
  • In the Thanksgiving-themed episode 9 of season 2, Missy says she is thankful for there being two Ghostbuster cartoons. Annie Potts, who plays MeeMaw, appeared in the two live action Ghostbuster movies and the 2016 reboot.
  • On re-watching the entire series run of "The Big Bang Theory", with new information on Sheldon's upbringing via the "origin story" prequel series "Young Sheldon", some of the later TBBT running gags and story arcs become more fleshed out, and the reasonings for some of Sheldon's reasoning, behaviour and eccentricities makes more sense. One of the more intriguing ones with hindsight is how Sheldon and Penny eventually bonded over the run of the TBBT series. It looks like it has similar parallels with young Sheldon's surprisingly close sibling relationship with his sassy twin sister Missy, and how he treats both Penny and (older) Missy, in both series. Up to season 2 of "Young Sheldon" we see Sheldon is actually close to Missy, a bond he seemingly would later repeat with Penny, as he can relate to Penny via his own twin Missy, possibly as an unintentional sibling substitute friend.
  • Twins Sheldon (Young Sheldon (2017)) & Missy (Raegan Revord) are shown to share a bedroom, however in The Big Bang Theory (2007) episode 7.18, The Big Bang Theory: The Mommy Observation (2014), Sheldon's (Jim Parsons) childhood bedroom is shown having only one twin bed. They may well have separate rooms later on when entering into adolescence since siblings/twins of different ***es often have different rooms as they get older.
  • Its possible that Vernee Watson's various appearances as medical staff in both Young Sheldon and The Big Bang Theory, are actually the same character in different stages of her in-universe career.
  • Annie Potts and Wallace Shawn , who play a couple on the series, previously co-starred together in Toy Story (1995). Zoe Perry's mother, Laurie Metcalf, also co-starred in the film.
  • Season 2 was commissioned on the sixth of January 2018.
  • The pilot episode was viewed by 17.21 million people and had a rating of 3.8 (adults 18-49). The total number of viewers (including DVR users) was 22.41 million.
  • The house Sheldon (Iain Armitage) lives in is not same one shown in The Big Bang Theory (2007) when Sheldon (Jim Parsons) visits his mother in episode 7.18, The Big Bang Theory: The Mommy Observation (2014).
  • Beginning with season 3, the opening switched from just having Sheldon walking to his spot to him walking up to the rest of his family, but dressed up differently in every episode but the first, leaving his other family members initially looking at him puzzled.
  • In the pilot, Sheldon wears mittens when holding hands to say grace. In the end, he mentions that he never touched his brother's bare hands until the invention of Purell (in 1996).
  • The pilot episode, Young Sheldon: Pilot (2017), went to air as a special preview of the series immediately after the season 11 premiere episode of The Big Bang Theory (2007), The Big Bang Theory: The Proposal Proposal (2017).
  • This series contains the first screen appearances of Sheldon's father, George Sr. (Lance Barber) and his older brother George Jr, played by Montana Jordan.
  • The song you hear a lot is "What I Like About You" from The Romantics.
  • As established on The Big Bang Theory (2007), Sheldon is portrayed as being a Star Trek fan. Wallace Shawn, who plays Dr Sturgis, appeared in the Star Trek franchise playing a recurring role on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (1993).
  • Most exterior and interior scenes of the Cooper's family church (First Baptist Church of Medford) are filmed at the First Christian Church, 4390 Colfax Avenue, Studio City, California, USA, a very popular filming location for decades of film and television shows.
  • Unlike The Big Bang Theory (2007), Young Sheldon (2017) is not filmed before a live audience, and does not have laughter on the sound track.
  • Sheldon, as a kid, did his classic knocking routine in only groups of two (three knocks/name, three knocks/name) . As an adult, he would eventually do it three times.
  • Contrary to what Sheldon has said on TBBT about him, Billy Sparks here is light years from being bully material. He's clearly a very low IQ person, but often cordial with Sheldon when they're together.
  • Iain Armatage (Young Sheldon) is the real life son of actor Euan Morton. Euan Morton plays the voice of the Sith Inquisitor in the video game Star Wars: The Old Republic. In the Big Bang Theory season 5, episode 19; The Weekend Vortex Sheldon and the others all stay in Sheldon and Leonard's apartment to play Star Wars "the online game" which can later be seen to be The Old Republic.
