Young Sheldon regular cast members
Fans of the hit sitcom must be familiar with the show's regular stars. The titular character is played by Iain Armitage. He plays the child version of Sheldon Cooper from The Big Bang Theory.

The official synopsis of Young Sheldon reads:
“For young Sheldon Cooper, it isn't easy growing up in East Texas. Being a once-in-a-generation mind capable of advanced mathematics and science isn't always helpful in a land where church and football are king. And while the vulnerable, gifted and somewhat naïve Sheldon deals with the world, his very normal family must find a way to deal with him.”
Young Sheldon Season 5 is all set to air the latest episodes from Thursday, October 7 at 8.00 p.m. (ET) on CBS and Paramount Plus.
