CBS has ordered three more seasons of “The Big Bang Theory” prequel “Young Sheldon”, which will take it through the 2023-24 season (and seven seasons). The number of original episodes per season has not been confirmed.

“Under Chuck Lorre’s and Steve Molaro’s deft leadership, this superb cast and gifted writers have truly brought these wonderful characters to life,” said Kelly Kahl, President, CBS Entertainment. “’Young Sheldon’ dominates the broadcast comedy landscape by over +2.5 million viewers and is the lynchpin of CBS’ top-rated Thursday comedy lineup. The humor, warmth and heart exuded by the Cooper family is an undeniable hook for the millions of fans who tune in each week. We’re excited to see what the next three seasons have in store for a slightly older Sheldon and all the Coopers.”

Debuting in September 2017 and set in the late 1980s and early 1990s; “Young Sheldon” follows Sheldon Cooper (Iain Armitage) as a young boy attending high school, and now college, in the fictional town of Medford, Texas. He tries to fit into the world full of people, including his own family and friends, who do not quite know how to deal with his unique intellectual capabilities and social ineptitude.
