CBS is looking to expand the world of The Big Bang Theory. The network is reportedly in the process of developing a prequel to the hit comedy, following the younger years of Jim Parsons’ character, Sheldon. Now that it’s officially been ordered to series, more details about the project are beginning to surface. Here’s what we know about the The Big Bang Theory spinoff so far.
1. Jim Parsons will have a role
None of the original The Big Bang Theory cast is expected to be involved in the possible spinoff, with one notable exception. Parsons, who plays Sheldon on the flagship series, will reportedly have a role on the project — behind the camera. He is set to narrate the comedy as “Adult Sheldon.” He is also expected to serve as an executive producer on the spinoff, alongside Lorre and Molaro.
