CBS has finalized the deal for a spin-off of "The Big bang Theory", titled "Young Sheldon", which will air for the 2017-2018 season. Perry, whose mother Laurie Metcalf played Sheldon's mother on The Big Bang Theory, will play young Sheldon's religious mother Mary Cooper in the prequel.

The Big Bang Theory debuted on CBS in 2007 and has proved a massive hit for the network. Other actors attached are Zoe Perry (who starred in the short-lived ABC drama, "The Family"), Lance Barber (who's had a recurring role on "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia"), Raegan Revord (who also appeared briefly in "Modern Family") and newcomer Montana Jordan. An additional appeal to the audience is that Parsons himself will narrate the show - which has most closely been compared to Malcolm In The Middle - that features Sheldon as a nine-year-old. Iron Man helmer Jon Favreau is set to direct the premiere.

Are you excited for Young Sheldon and the chance to possibly see the origin of "Bazinga"? Revord and Jordan will play his twin sister and older brother, respectively.

Malta's 'Azure Window' rock formation collapses into the sea
Numerous residents have witnessed what happened to the Azure Window as it collapsed into the sea. It added that about 80 percent of tourists to the island visited the famed rock formation.

Young Sheldon will center on Sheldon Cooper's rather awkward childhood experiences in Galveston, Texas. The Big Bang Theory now airs Thursdays at 8/7c on CBS. It was created by Big Bang's Chuck Lorre and Steven Molaro. It's the first pickup of a new show for CBS this development season.

Since CBS has ordered the show straight to series, there is no need for a pilot.

The casting news came in the midst of contract salary negotiations for BBT ensemble's two-year, 48-episode renewal.
