Young Sheldon’s run has come to an end. The hit CBS series has been renewed for a seventh and final season. The show continues to be a ratings hit for the network (and across streaming), but the decision has been made to close this chapter on Sheldon Cooper’s story. Season 7 will premiere in 2024.

Young Sheldon premiered in 2017, and The Big Bang Theory ended after 12 seasons just 2 years later. Iain Armitage took on the role of young Sheldon Cooper, the character Jim Parsons originated. The coming-of-age comedy series follows the young genius as he grows up in East Texas. Hollywood Life has all the latest news about the show’s premiere and finale date, a new spinoff, and more.

‘Young Sheldon’ Season 7 Premiere Date

Young Sheldon season 7 will premiere on February 15, 2024, at 8 p.m. ET on CBS. The comedy series will kick off CBS’ Thursday night lineup. Ghosts season 3 will air directly after Young Sheldon, followed by So Help Me Todd season 2 and the new series Tracker.

Young Sheldon season 7 will consist of 14 episodes. CBS has already set the show’s series finale date. The hour-long series finale will air on May 16, 2024.

Why Is ‘Young Sheldon’ Ending?

Young Sheldon is still a major hit for CBS, so why is season 7 the final season? CBS revealed that Young Sheldon’s seventh season would be its last in November 2023.

While CBS hasn’t exactly addressed why the show is ending, it’s likely due to the timeline of the show. From what we know from The Big Bang Theory, the younger version Sheldon only has one year left in college before he moves to Pasadena to study at the California Institute of Technology. The show could have followed him to Caltech, but that would have eliminated the family element of the show.

“As a prequel to one of the biggest comedies, Young Sheldon proved lightning can strike twice,” Amy Reisenbach, president of CBS Entertainment, said in a statement. “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.”

Executive producers Steve Holland, Steven Molaro, and Chuck Lorre also said: “Being able to tell the origin of Sheldon Cooper, and expanding the story to include the entire Cooper family has been a wonderful experience. 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.”

“It’s prenatal,” Chuck told TVLine. “Yeah, you don’t talk about the birth until the second trimester, I believe, is the rule. That’s a long way of saying no, I’ve got nothing to say about it other than it’s something that we are discussing.”
