Iain Armitage as Sheldon.

We’re excited to confirm that Young Sheldon has been given the go-ahead for a second season.

Sheldon will return, another year older, and a whole lot smarter (if that’s even possible).

It’s a no-brainer really. The family comedy has had a global impact, not only for fans of the original Big Bang series.

The prequel has been labelled TV’s number one new comedy, with young star Iain Armitage stealing the show in every episode.

“Young Sheldon has staked out its own place in the TV universe, with a unique creative tone, brilliant writing and a gifted, multi-generational cast,” said Kelly Kahl, President of CBS Entertainment.

Production for the new season will begin this month, ahead of the U.S launch later this year.
