At an investor conference last week, CBS Corp. CEO Leslie Moonves said Young Sheldon will likely air behind Big Bang next season. That, of course, is contingent on securing the pending two-season Big Bang renewal, which Moonves said was “on the two yard line.”

On Big Bang, there have been clues about Sheldon’s childhood in Galveston, TX, with his older brother George; fraternal twin sister Missy; their mother Mary Cooper, an overtly devout Evangelical Christian played by Laurie Metcalf whose daughter Perry will portray her in the prequel; and father George Cooper, an alcoholic who was never around.
