A “Big Bang Theory” spinoff is in the works reports Variety, which would revolve around Sheldon Cooper’s character in his younger days.
Warner Bros. TV and CBS are in the early stages of developing a spinoff of the hit comedy series, with Jim Parsons who plays Sheldon also attached to the project as one of the executive producers.
The new show would focus on Sheldon’s early days growing up in Texas, with his colorful family and and childhood often referenced on “Big Bang Theory.” Actress Laurie Metcalf also received an Emmy nomination earlier this year for her recurring guest star role as Sheldon’s mother, Mary Cooper.
Now in its 10th season, the show is still television’s top comedy, with Warner Bros. and CBS expected to begin talks soon about renewing the show for another two or three seasons.
Although more seasons of the show would be good news for fans, at the moment the spin-off is still in very early development and just at the script stage say sources.
