In a major show of confidence, CBS has renewed Young Sheldon for 3 additional seasons, thus allowing the series to make it to season 7. In 2017, CBS created Young Sheldon with the hopes of building upon the success of their beloved sitcom The Big Bang Theory. The spin-off explores the childhood of Jim Parson’s character Sheldon Cooper, a child prodigy who shines bright in his small Texas town. Iain Armitage plays Sheldon on the show, which delves further into the Cooper family and Sheldon’s experiences in school.
Young Sheldon has become a big success for CBS, especially since The Big Bang Theory ended its run in 2019. The current fourth season has seen Sheldon graduate high school and move on to college. Much to the delight of fans of the original series, Young Sheldon has still found ways to connect to The Big Bang Theory through fun cameos and references.
Further supporting just how big of a hit Young Sheldon is, Deadline reports CBS has renewed the Chuck Lorre-produced series through season 7, adding three to its current total. Young Sheldon remains the most-watched comedy on television, and it will now remain a staple of CBS through the 2023-24 season.
