CBS has released the first official photos from the anticipated Big Bang Theory spinoff on Wednesday -- and young star Iain Armitage, who plays young Sheldon Cooper, is absolutely adorable as the miniature version of the mathematics genius.
"Chuck Lorre, Steve Molaro are really heading it but they're always really sweet about asking, 'What would you think?' and I'm like, 'I think it's great,'" Parsons said of casting his role. "I kind of don't want to get in the way too much because whoever the kids is has to do his own thing. You know what I mean? If it's going to be special it has to be related to what's going on but also its own creature, you know? I'm excited about it though."
Young Sheldon premieres after The Big Bang Theory season 11 return on Monday, Sept. 25 at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT before debuting in its regular time slot Thursday, Nov. 2 at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
