HBO Max has acquired the exclusive rights to the comedy Young Sheldon, the streaming service said Friday.
The deal with Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution calls for HBO Max -- which launched on Tuesday -- to stream the Big Bang Theory spinoff, which is currently the most watched comedy on network television with total viewers, teens and key 25-54 demos, said the streaming service. HBO Max also has rights to the 279-episode Big Bang Theory library.
“We now feel like our Big Bang offering is complete,” said Kevin Reilly, chief content officer, HBO Max, president TNT, TBS, and TruTV in a statement. “We are so proud to be the home of this beloved franchise and the place where new and existing fans can learn about young Sheldon Cooper’s roots.”
