After The Big Bang Theory signs off later this year, at least fans will still be able to get their Sheldon Cooper fix through Young Sheldon. The show has been a hit with fans and critics, who have had great things to say about Iain Armitage, the actor playing the title character. Jim Parsons, who plays “old” Sheldon and contributes voiceovers to the series, is also an executive producer on the show. He told us that when he and the show’s creators, Chuck Lorre and Steven Molaro, came across Armitage in the audition process, they realized right away they’d found something special.

Young Sheldon airs Thursday nights at 8:30/7:30c, right after The Big Bang Theory on CBS.
