Young Sheldon season 7 will be the Big Bang Theoryprequel’s final outing.
In a statement via TVLine, Amy Reisenbach, who’s president of entertainment at CBS, said: “As a prequel to one of the biggest comedies, Young Sheldon proved lightning can strike twice.
“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,” she continued.
“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.”
Lorre, Molaro and Holland jointly said of the news: “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 been confirmed that the last ever season of Young Sheldonwill premiere on February 15, 2024 in the US before wrapping up with a one-hour finale on May 16.
This comes after Lorre teased a second offshoot from The Big Bang Theory, which he described as in its “prenatal” phase of development.
“You don’t talk about the birth until the second trimester, I believe, is the rule,” he said.
“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.”
