Young Sheldon is an American coming-of-age sitcom television series for CBS created by Chuck Lorre and Steven Molaro. The series, set in the late 1980s and early 1990s, is a spin-off prequel to The Big Bang Theory and begins with the character Sheldon Cooper at the age of nine where he is a high school student, living in East Texas with his family.
Young Sheldon Plot
The timeline of the story is from the late 80s to the early 90s when young Sheldon Cooper is attending high school in the fictional town of Medford in East Texas. As a nine-year-old high-schooler, he tries hard to fit in with the crowd and blend as a student of his age in this crowded world of all sorts of people which includes his friends and families who still have not figured out yet how one must deal with someone with such high intellectual capabilities, intelligence and social ineptitude as him.
‘Young Sheldon’ has skipped through four grades owing to his genius skills and high IQ- Brain to join the same grade as his elder brother. Sheldon struggles to be understood, accepted, and be what people define as normal in this world. His mom saves him from bullies by reminding people about his father being the coach of the football team and his brother playing for the team as well. Sheldon also has a sister who is not as intelligent as him of course but has a clearer view of what the world has planned for the future of this young genius.
Young Sheldon Season 7 Release Date and Status
The seventh season of Young Sheldon will premiere in Fall 2023. The seventh season has been renewed along with the fifth and sixth seasons. The seventh season will be taking place around the time of 1994. It is unknown if we will see Georgie Sr.’s death this season, but considering as of now this is the last season renewed it is very likely that his character might be killed this season.
As the Allison Janney-fronted Mom will come to an end during this current season, Young Sheldon is poised to be CBS’ longest-running comedy that is currently on air. The Big Bang Theory eked out 12 seasons in total, so there could still be plenty of life left in Young Sheldon once it reaches the end of this latest renewal.
