CBS announced today that Young Sheldon will be coming to an end after its upcoming 7th season. The 'Big Bang Theory' spinoff will conclude its story with a final 14-episode run that will premiere on February 15, 2024. The show was last renewed in 2021, when it received a three-season pickup that included the 7th and final season.

"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."

The series has been consistently strong in the ratings over the course of its run. It premiered as the #1 new comedy of the 2017-2018 television season and became the top comedy in the 2019-2020 season after 'The Big Bang Theory' completed its run. The show remains the #1 comedy for the 2022-2023 season and regularly outperforms its competition.

Young Sheldon follows a 9-year-old Sheldon Cooper growing up in East Texas. At a young age, his advanced mathematical and scientific mind isn't necessarily helpful when living in a town where football and church get all the attention. Vulnerable, gifted and naive, Sheldon is embarking on his awkward journey toward the man he will become.
