Young Sheldon Headed to TBS


TBS has acquired the hit comedy series Young Sheldon from Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution.

Young Sheldon will premiere on TBS on September 27. The series is a spin-off prequel of The Big Bang Theory, and it follows young Sheldon Cooper as he embarks on his innocent, awkward and hopeful coming-of-age journey.

The show originally premiered on CBS in 2017 and was the most-watched comedy debut in 15 years. It recently concluded its fourth season and has been renewed by CBS for an additional three seasons.

Young Sheldon is produced by Chuck Lorre Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television, with Chuck Lorre, Steven Molaro, Steve Holland, Jim Parsons and Todd Spiewak as executive producers.

Brett Weitz, general manager of TBS, TNT and truTV, said: “The Warner Bros. Domestic TV library has been wonderfully successful for our networks, from Friends to The Big Bang Theory, and Young Sheldon is a natural addition that is going to enhance more opportunities for consumers to sit back and laugh.”
