Spinoffs of “The Big Bang The­ory’’ and “Grey’s Anatomy’’ and a re­vival of “Roseanne’’ with the orig­i­nal cast are among the new shows headed to CTV.

The Cana­dian net­work’s 2017/18 sea­son ac­qui­si­tions un­veiled Tues­day in­clude the com­edy “Young Shel­don,’’ about the child­hood of “Big Bang The­ory’s’ Shel­don Cooper.

Also on the sched­ule are two Shonda Rhimes projects — one is a yet-to-be-ti­tled “Grey’s” spinoff about a group of Seat­tle fire­fight­ers, and the other is the le­gal drama “For the Peo­ple.’’

CTV un­veiled a to­tal of 13 new se­ries for the new sea­son — four come­dies and nine dra­mas — ahead of its full prime-time sched­ule an­nounce­ment on June 7.
