Young Sheldon will be coming to an end with its seventh and final season, with the series finale date already slated.
CBS has announced that Young Sheldon will be coming to an end with its upcoming seventh season. This news should come as no surprise to fans as the story has been quickly approaching events that have been referenced on The Big Bang Theory.
“As a prequel to one of the biggest comedies, Young Sheldon proved lightning can strike twice,” said Amy Reisenbach, president of CBS Entertainment. “It set itself apart with a remarkable cast that felt like a family from the first moment we saw them on screen and brought characters to life with unique heartfelt stories that drew audiences in from the start. We extend a sincere thank you to executive producers Chuck Lorre, Steve Molaro and Steve Holland and the entire writing and producing teams for six wonderful seasons. We look forward to seeing their final season unfold and giving it a proper send off with the best episodes yet for their fans to enjoy.“
Young Sheldon season 7 will consist of 14 episodes, with the series finale already scheduled to air on May 16th at 8 p.m. The seventh and final season will be the last of the three-year renewal the show received in 2021.
“Being able to tell the origin of Sheldon Cooper, and expanding the story to include the entire Cooper family has been a wonderful experience,” said executive producers Steve Holland, Steven Molaro and Chuck Lorre. “We are grateful to our fans for embracing this chapter of the Coopers these past six seasons, and on behalf of the entire Young Sheldon family, we’re excited to share this final season with you.“
Even when Young Sheldon does come to an end, it won’t be the last of The Big Bang Theory franchise. It was announced earlier this year that Chuck Lorre was in the early stages of developing another spin-off series. Plot details are unknown, but it’s believed to be an “hour-long series featuring a mostly new cast with potential for known ‘Big Bang’ stars to appear in guest spots.” Lorre recently provided an update on the potential spin-off to TVLine, saying that the project was still in the “prenatal” stages. “
