Young Sheldon Season 1 Episodes

Season 1 Episode Guide

22 Episodes 2017 - 2018

The first season of "The Big Bang Theory" spinoff "Young Sheldon" introduces Sheldon Cooper (Iain Armitage) as a 9-year-old, the odd one out in a family whose other members display average intelligence. Sheldon attends ninth grade with his older brother Georgie (Montana Jordan), who has to deal with the embarrassment he feels about going to the same class as his younger brother. Sheldon is also close to his twin sister Missy (Raegan Revord), though they don't share the same level of intellect or interests. Both Georgie and Missy occasionally display jealousy towards Sheldon for the extra attention he gets from their parents Mary (Zoe Perry) and George (Lance Barber). Their grandmother Meemaw (Annie Potts) often serves as the bridge of understanding between Sheldon and his family. "Young Sheldon" also stars Ryan Phuong as Tam, Sheldon's only friend, while Jim Parsons narrates. Bob Newhart, Melissa Tang, Ray Liotta, Frances Conroy, and Elon Musk make special appearances.
