The new show on the CBS block, Young Sheldon, focuses on a very young Sheldon Cooper as he enters high School.
This new promo gives us a glimpse into what happens when a 9 year-old genius enters high school.
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. – CBS
