Scoop: Coming Up on YOUNG SHELDON on CBS - Monday, December 25, 2017 On the episode "Pilot" - 9-year-old Sheldon Cooper is a once-in-a-generation mind capable of advanced mathematics and Science but learns that isn't always helpful growing up in East Texas, a land where church and football are king, on a rebroadcast of the special series debut of the new comedy YOUNG SHELDON, Monday, Dec. 25 (9:00-9:30 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Iain Armitage, Zoe Perry, Lance Barber, Annie Potts, Montana Jordan and Raegan Revord star. THE BIG BANG THEORY's Jim Parsons is an executive producer and narrates as adult Sheldon. (Originally broadcast 9/25/17.)

While the vulnerable, gifted and somewhat naïve Sheldon deals with the world, his very normal family must find a way to deal with him. His father, George, is struggling to find his way as a HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL coach and as father to a boy he doesn't understand. Sheldon's mother, Mary, fiercely protects and nurtures her son in a town where he just doesn't fit in. Sheldon's older brother, Georgie, does the best he can in high school, but it's tough to be cool when you're in the same classes with your odd 9-year-old brother. Sheldon's twin sister, Missy, sometimes resents all the attention Sheldon gets, but she also remains THE ONE person who can reliably tell Sheldon the truth.

Finally, there's Sheldon's beloved Meemaw, his foul-mouthed, hard-drinking Texas grandmother who is very supportive of her grandson and his unique gifts. For 10 years on THE BIG BANG THEORY, audiences have come to know the iconic, eccentric and extraordinary Sheldon Cooper. This single-camera, half-hour comedy gives us the chance to meet him in childhood, as he embarks on his innocent, awkward and hopeful journey toward the man he will become.
