CBS has given a full season order to Young Sheldon.
The news comes just two days after the Big Bang Theory spinoff debuted to an average of 17.21 million viewers and a 3.8 in the 18-49 demographic, becoming the most-watched comedy premiere on any network since 2011. The show also retained 98% of the Big Bang Theory audience.
Young Sheldon officially becomes the first new show of the season to receive a full season order. However, unlike Big Bang Theory, which does 24 episodes a season, Young Sheldon will get a more traditional 22 episodes for its first season.
The show follows a 9-year-old Sheldon Cooper growing up in East Texas.
The spinoff stars Iain Armitage, Zoe Perry, Lance Barber, Raegan Revord, Annie Potts, and Montana Jordan. Young Sheldon returns on Thursday, November 2nd.
