CBS has officially greenlit Young Sheldon, a spin-off of the megahit sitcom The Big Bang Theory about breakout character Sheldon Cooper’s (Jim Parsons) childhood, for the 2017-18 season, the network announced Monday.

Iron Man director Jon Favreau will executive-produce and direct the first episode. Jim Parsons will narrate, Wonder Years-style, as grown-up Sheldon. Unlike The Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon will be a single-camera sitcom without a laugh track.

As previously reported, 9-year-old Iain Armitage will play the boy genius, and Zoe Perry will play his mother Mary. Perry is the real-life daughter of Laurie Metcalf, who plays Mary on The Big Bang Theory.
