HBO Max Scores ‘Young Sheldon’ Streaming Rights

HBO Max has snapped up the rights to Young Sheldon in the latest big streaming deal.

The nascent digital platform, which launched this week, struck a deal with sister company Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution for all three seasons to The Big Bang Theory spin-off.

This brings all of the Bbt universe under one streaming roof after HBO Max closed a major deal last year to pick up all 279 episodes of the original CBS sitcom.

The service didn’t reveal when the show, which stars Iain Armitage as a young Sheldon Cooper, would air and wouldn’t disclose financial details of the deal. However, it is likely to be much less than it paid for its parent show, a deal thought to be north of $600M.

Single camera comedy Young Sheldon, which returns to CBS on Thursday nights in the fall, is the number one comedy on network television with total viewers.
