Sheldon’s childhood as a garage scientist
In addition, a prequel to The Big Bang Theory is now to be produced. According to media reports, the spin-off series is about the childhood and youth of Sheldon Cooper. It is already known from The Big Bang Theory that he spent his childhood with his family in Texas. There he grew up together with his very religious mother Mary, his older brother George and his twin sister Missy. As Sheldon often remembers melancholically, his father was an alcoholic and died some years ago.
Ordering uranium is not allowed Sheldon!
For the brilliant scientist Sheldon Cooper, his IQ of 187 in childhood was not always a blessing. In The Big Bang Theory he tells us that his parents had no interest in his scientific experiments. So he couldn’t understand why he wasn’t allowed to order uranium for a mini nuclear power plant he wanted to build in his garage.
Jim Parsons as producer?
As the Spiegelschreiben writes, the script for the series has not yet been written, but a pilot episode should be ordered in the near future. The big bang theory prequel could be oriented towards family sitcoms like “Malcolm in the Middle”. But then Jim Parsons would be involved in the series as producer not in front of the camera but behind it. The makers of The Big Bang Theory, Chuck Lorre, Bill Prady and Steve Molaro could also be involved in the spin-off.
