Bazinga! The new spin-off has finally been confirmed and the lead actor is NINE years old.

The talks of a Sheldon spin-off have been floating around the world of television for a while now - and why wouldn't they? Jim Parsons has collected countless awards for his portrayal of the Theoretical Scientist including FOUR Emmys!

You Can Relax Now... The Big Bang Theory Will Probably Return For At Least Two More Seasons

Well, now the news has finally broken and die-hard fans will be breathing a sigh of relief after it was confirmed Big Bang Theory creators Chuck Lorre and Steve Molaro are both on board to write and produce the show.

Even better news is the fact that Jim Parsons himself will also narrate the series.

The biggest shock of all comes with the choice of actor to play Sheldon in his younger years. Not because of his acting ability (the kid is genuinely pretty good) but more because he's only NINE years old!
