One of the breakout hits of last season was the debut of Young Sheldon. The Big Bang Theory prequel delves into what growing up was like for Jim Parsons’ Sheldon Cooper.
The show stars Iain Armitage (Big Little Lies) as the title character alongside Zoe Perry, Lance Barber and Raegan Revord.
At CTV’s 2018 upfront presentation, I caught up with Young Sheldon‘s Zoe Perry and Lance Barber. We chatted about the success of the show’s first season and if even they could have predicted how popular the Big Bang Theory prequel would become. We also discussed how the show has been able to find its own voice despite the popularity of its predecessor and where the show will go when it returns.
