First Look At Young Sheldon

 

It’s 1989, and we meet nine-year-old Sheldon Cooper, the beloved character from The Big Bang Theory, who has skipped four grades to start high school alongside his less-intellectual older brother.

We get a peek into the early years–with voiceover from Jim Parsons–of a genius who is misunderstood by his family, classmates and neighbors. His mother preps him with what she thinks is the only tool he’ll need to survive at his new school: remind bullies that his dad’s the football coach and his brother plays on the team. His twin sister, who’s happy to stay in fourth grade, has a better sense of what awaits Sheldon than he does.

Young Sheldon may understand Newtonian physics, but his blue-collar, church-going family only cares if that knowledge will help them win a football game.
