Young Sheldon covers the life of Sheldon Cooper before his Big Bang Theory days – but where is the show filmed? Here’s a full rundown of the main filming locations.

In 2007, CBS launched The Big Bang Theory onto screens with stratospheric results – so much so that its universe has expanded to spin-offs such as the prequel series Young Sheldon.

The show follows a young Sheldon Cooper, who is a bona fide genius and has been promoted four grades. Meanwhile, he struggles to fit in with his unintellectual family in Texas.

This is also where parent series The Big Bang Theory is shot. In line with Warner Bros. rules, once a show reaches 10 seasons it gets a sound stage named after its title, with The Big Bang Theory one of the latest to be included (having reached a total of 12 seasons).

Young Sheldon uses sound stages 12 & 23, with people able to try for tickets to live tapings or take a tour of where the magic happens.

Exteriors for Sheldon’s home are located in LA’s San Fernando Valley, which is only three miles away from the main Warner Bros. studios. Sheldon’s family church can be found in North Hollywood, with the Van Nuys High School doubling up as his academic home.

Meemaw’s house – both interiors and exteriors – is shot on the Warner Bros. lot, which Gilmore Girls fans might recognize from Season 1.

Young Sheldon Seasons 1-6 are on Netflix now, and you can find out more about the current – and final – Season 7 here.
