'Young Sheldon' Cast Announced As Logie Award Special Guests
It promises to be a night of celebration and international surprises when the stars of much-loved American TV comedy series Young Sheldon walk the red carpet at this year’s TV WEEK Logie Awards.
10-year-old Iain Armitage, who plays comical child prodigy Sheldon Cooper, will be joined by Zoe Perry (his patient on-screen mum, Mary), Lance Barber (his loveable dad George) and mischievous siblings 16-year-old Montana Jordan (George Jnr) and 11-year-old Raegan Revord (Missy).
Young Sheldon was created as a prequel to award-winning US sitcom The Big Bang Theory, both of which air on Nine Network in Australia. The show premiered in September 2017 to rave reviews and, after two successful seasons, has recently been renewed for a third and fourth season.
TV WEEK editor Thomas Woodgate said: "This is such wonderful news for this year’s Logie Awards. I’m so excited to welcome the cast of Young Sheldon to TV’s night of nights."
The 61st TV WEEK Logie Awards will take place on Sunday, June 30, at The Star Gold Coast in Queensland. All the action from the red-carpet arrivals and awards-show celebrations will be telecast on the Nine Network and 9Now.
