As the title suggests, the spinoff will feature a young Sheldon and his experiences growing up in Texas in a home with his parents, brother and twin sister. It also follows him on his journey through high school at the tender age of NINE YEARS OLD.
In the original show, Sheldon talks A LOT about how special his Meemaw is to him and how she played an important role in his life growing up. Unfortunately, we didn’t get a whole lot of opportunity to see her in the original. Now we get a better glimpse into this beloved woman’s life with a front row seat to her interactions with a young Sheldon.
Meemaw’s real name is Constance, and she is Sheldon’s favorite family member. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Annie Potts has been cast to play the part of Meemaw.

She is exactly as I would have pictured her in my head! I can’t think of a better person to play the part.
