CBS Orders ‘Young Sheldon’ Georgie & Mandy Spinoff Series Starring Montana Jordan And Emily Osment

The Big Bang Theory-verse is officially expanding as CBS on Tuesday greenlighted a new half-hour, multi-camera comedy series starring Montana Jordan and Emily Osment for broadcast in the 2024-2025 season.

Created by the producing team behind The Big Bang Theory and Young Sheldon — Chuck Lorre, Steven Molaro and Steve Holland — the sequel series follows Young Sheldon’s Georgie (Jordan) and Mandy (Osment) as they raise their young family in Texas while navigating the challenges of adulthood, parenting and marriage.

Deadline reported in January that the spinoff was in the works as the two leads were working on their deals. Additional notes included Lorre, Molaro and Holland’s history with the franchise as all three have worked on The Big Bang Theory or Young Sheldon (or both simultaneously) since the launch of the mothership series, which Lorre co-created, in 2007. Molaro ran BBT for years before teaming with Lorre to co-create Young Sheldon and taking on showrunner duties for the prequel, with Holland succeeding him at the helm of BBT before segueing to Young Sheldon following the flagship series’ end in 2019.

“It has been a privilege to spend the last seven years with Sheldon and the Cooper family and now this wonderful journey will continue with Georgie and Mandy,” said Amy Reisenbach, president of CBS Entertainment, in a statement. “Chuck and both Steves have done a masterful job developing these characters and entertaining generations of fans with relatable, heartwarming stories brought to life by Montana and Emily. We eagerly look forward to the next chapter in this beloved universe.”

“From the Big Bang Theory to Young Sheldon, the world of the Cooper family has been incredibly special to us,” Lorre, Molaro and Holland said in a joint statement. “We’re very excited to continue their stories through the eyes of Georgie and Mandy.”

Lorre, Molaro and Holland will serve as executive producers of the series, from Chuck Lorre Productions, Inc. in association with Warner Bros Television.

Young Sheldon premiered as the No. 1 new comedy of the 2017-2018 TV season and became the No. 1 comedy in the 2019-2020 season after The Big Bang Theory completed its run. Young Sheldon is currently TV’s No. 1 comedy since the show premiered its seventh and final season.

The Young Sheldon series finale, featuring two back-to-back episodes, is set to air Thursday, May 16 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CBS and streaming on Paramount+.
