Can't get enough of Young Sheldon? Neither can we!

CBS has officially picked up the freshman comedy for a second season, marking the network's first renewal for the 2018-2019 broadcast season.

"Young Sheldon has made a huge impact on our schedule in the short time it's been on the air," said Kelly Kahl, President of CBS Entertainment.

"While the show's DNA is clearly rooted in The Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon has staked out its own place in the TV universe with a unique, creative tone, brilliant writing, and a gifted, multi-generational cast. We can't wait to see Chuck, Steve, Jim, and Todd's vision for how the Cooper family deals with Sheldon growing a year older... and smarter."

Young Sheldon is the  No. 1 new comedy in viewers (16.17m), adults 18-49 (3.3), and adults 25-54 (4.9), and is the No. 2 comedy in all of television, behind only The Big Bang Theory.

It has the best retention for any show ever out of The Big Bang Theory and has the best delivery of any new comedy on any network since the 1999-2000 television season.

The half-hour, single-camera comedy series, which stars Iain Armitage, Zoe Perry, Lance Barber, Annie Potts, Raegan Revord, Montana Jordan, and the voice of Jim Parsons, follows The Big Bang Theory's Sheldon Cooper at the age of 9, living with his family in East Texas and going to high school.

Chuck Lorre, Steven Molaro, Jim Parsons and Todd Spiewak serve as Executive Producers. Young Sheldon is produced by Chuck Lorre Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.

Watch all-new episodes of Young Sheldon on Thursdays at 8:30/7:30c on CBS and CBS All Access.
