It looks like there could be more Big Bang Theory coming our way — but not in the way you might expect!
The Hollywood Reporter reports that CBS is currently in the process of developing a Big Bang Theory spinoff that would center around none other than Sheldon Cooper.
According to THR, co-creators Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady are both set to be involved in the new spinoff, which would center around a younger version of Dr. Sheldon Cooper.
Jim Parsons currently plays Sheldon Cooper on TBBT, and while he may be too old to portray his on-screen counterpart in the aged-down prequel, he’ll reportedly still have a bit of a hand in the spinoff. Instead of starring in it, however, THR reports Parsons will executive produce the project.
As of right now, no one involved with either CBS or The Big Bang Theory have commented on THR’s report, but it’s definitely exciting to hear that it’s a possibility.
Sheldon Cooper has grown to become one of the most beloved characters in pop culture since TBBT was first introduced to the world 10 years ago. As much fun as it’s been watching Sheldon grow over the course of the last 10 seasons, we think it’d be equally as amusing to see how he would have fared as a brainy high school student!
The Big Bang Theory airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. on CBS.
