The Big Bang Theory has 9 Emmy Awards to its credit and it appears CBS is so thrilled with the success of the show that the network is reportedly developing on a spinoff series.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, CBS is working on a spinoff about the life of young Sheldon Cooper. The new show would reportedly focus on a teenage version of the quirky theoretical physicist and comes from Big Bang co-creators Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady along with showrunner Steve Molaro, however none of the current cast is involved.
E! contacted CBS, yet the network had no comment on the potential new sitcom.
Sheldon (played by Emmy winner Jim Parsons) was a child prodigy who graduated from college summa cum laude as a teen, and then went on to earn his doctorate (and several other degrees).
As for The Big Bang Theory itself, CBS President Glenn Geller told reporters in August that he is set to keep the award-winning on the air for as long as possible, there's no end in sight.
"We are very confident that everyone involved wants more Big Bang past year 10 and I know Warner Bros. will make those deals," he told reporters in August, later adding, "We'll put it on for as long as everyone wants Big Bang on the air. I hope it lasts forever."
