We'll learn from "Young Sheldon", a spinoff of "The Big Bang Theory". Zoe Perry will co-star as his mother, a role previously played on "Big Bang Theory" by Perry's own mom, Laurie Metcalfe.

CBS Corp. CEO Leslie Moonves said the show will most likely be aired after The Big Bang Theory, providing the show gets renewed, which is said to nearly be a done deal.

The cast also includes Lance Barber (The Comeback), Raegan Revord (Modern Family) and Montana Jordan. Parsons will narrate the series, which unlike its laugh-track laden predecessor, will be shot in the single-camera format. Jon Favreau will direct the first episode of the new series.

In picking up the comedy to series, Young Sheldon has also released its formal logline, filled out its cast and set the pilot director. As the title suggests, the series will recount the days of Sheldon Cooper as a child, living back home with his mother. Barber is reportedly playing Sheldon's father, Revord his twin sister, and Jordan his older brother. Parsons will be an executive producer, along with "Big Bang" executive producers Lorre and Molaro.

A two-season renewal of The Big Bang Theory is imminent. Now it's just a show about guys who can't do what they love because their significant others say it isn't "normal".

In a Monday press statement, CBS confirmed that it ordered "Young Sheldon" to series.
