Last week, The Big Bang Theory similarly made headlines because the popular program — which premiered in September 2007 — is getting a new prequel show. The spin-off series is titled Young Sheldon and will follow genius Sheldon Cooper and his family.

According to the network, the single-camera comedy will run 30 minutes and chronicle nine-year-old Sheldon's upbringing in East Texas and early move to high school.

Earlier this month, news additionally broke that Big Bang's five main stars — Johnny, Jim, Kaley, Kunal, and Simon — were planning to decrease their salaries by $100,000 for Seasons 11 and 12 of the hit show to free up $500,000 for co-stars Mayim and Melissa to get significant raises.
