Montana Jordan and Emily Osment to Star in Young Sheldon Spinoff: Georgie Cooper and Mandy McAllister’s Love Story Continues

LOS ANGELES — CBS is reportedly in discussions to develop a spinoff of its popular series “Young Sheldon,” in collaboration with executive producers Chuck Lorre, Steve Holland, and Steve Molaro. Although no official statements have been released by CBS or Warner Bros. Television, sources indicate that the potential spinoff will focus on the characters Georgie Cooper and Mandy McAllister, portrayed by Montana Jordan and Emily Osment, respectively.

If the spinoff moves forward, it is expected to premiere during the 2024-25 broadcast season with a 13-episode order. Unlike its predecessor, “Young Sheldon,” which is a single-camera comedy, the spinoff will be a multicamera comedy. “Young Sheldon” is set to conclude this year after a successful seven-season run.

The development of the “Young Sheldon” spinoff marks another project for Lorre, who is also working on a separate spinoff for Warner Bros. Discovery’s streaming service, Max. Additionally, Lorre’s remaining broadcast shows, including “Bob Hearts Abishola,” are set to wrap up this year.

While the formal series order for the spinoff is pending the closure of deals with the lead actors, Lorre, Holland, and Molaro are expected to write and executive produce the series. Warner Bros. Television, which has been Lorre’s professional home for over two decades, will serve as the studio for the project.

If the spinoff receives the greenlight, it will join straight-to-series orders “NCIS: Origins” and “Watson” as part of CBS’s lineup for the 2024-25 season. The network has also retained “Matlock” and multicamera comedy “Poppa’s House” for the upcoming season.

In summary, CBS is reportedly in talks to develop a spinoff of “Young Sheldon,” focusing on the characters Georgie Cooper and Mandy McAllister. The spinoff, expected to premiere in 2024-25, will be a multicamera comedy, in contrast to its single-camera predecessor.
