Young Sheldon Season 7 Release Date: When will the series return on CBS?

The fans previously believed that filming would begin this year after discovering that the show had been greenlit for a highly anticipated seventh season as a part of a multi-season renewal along with Seasons 5 and 6 back in March 2021. Sadly, all this excitement was short-lived, as the season’s official production has been put to a halt as it was disrupted by the ongoing WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes, which started a few weeks ago!

This ongoing situation has caused the workings of Hollywood to come to a definite stop until a proper resolution is made for the work to effectively resume and the production to conclude on time without causing any further hurdles to the release. As a result, the previously confirmed 2023–24 fall release window for the series comeback has been directly impacted, along with many other original CBS shows, which unfortunately include Young Sheldon Season 7. 

As a result, there is no chance that the coming-of-age sitcom television series created by Chuck Lorre and Steven Molaro will premiere its much-awaited seventh season in August 2023!

Our best estimate is that the writing of the series might commence as soon as the strikes reach an agreement with the filming, which has already been delayed and rescheduled to begin sometime later this year for the new episodes to begin airing in the first quarter of 2024, which includes the months of January, February, and March, instead of premiering in the fall of 2023, with the same time slot of every Thursday night at 8 p.m. on a weekly basis without causing any unwanted changes in the previously confirmed primetime schedule. 

We would also like to emphasize that there is a chance that the new episodes can also begin airing by the end of this year only if the strike reaches an agreement within the next few weeks. Until then, the 2024 release window is fixed for all the scripted shows on the CBS network. Finally, the network might also opt to follow the same direction as its competitor networks by scheduling all the non-scripted content for the rest of the year, which won’t require any writers or actors to participate in the strike until an agreement is reached.

It’s a great alternative to deal with the issue at hand, as it will not cause any uncertainties in the network schedule for the coming months. The network might also agree to premiere reruns of Young Sheldon’s previous seasons at the same time slot in order to fill the void of having empty prime time slots in the 2023–24 fall broadcast season, which will at least give the viewers a chance to catch up with all the prior episodes in case they were never able to do so before! In conclusion, we’ll simply have to wait and see what the future has in store for this series until then.

Young Sheldon Season 7 Plot: What to expect from the new season?

Due to the ongoing strikes and delayed production, the season might be very rushed, as this will more than likely be the last season, and the writers will have to mash tons of things into certain episodes. This is quite unfortunate, but we are certain that the creators will endure and that the series will continue to keep the basic premise of the show consistent, which is as follows:

For young Sheldon Cooper, it isn’t easy growing up in East Texas. Being a once-in-a-generation mind capable of advanced mathematics and science isn’t always helpful in a land where church and football are kings. And while the vulnerable, gifted, and somewhat naive Sheldon deals with the world, his very normal family must find a way to deal with him. In “Young Sheldon,” audiences get a chance to meet him in childhood as he embarks on his innocent, awkward, and hopeful journey toward the man he will become.

*Spoiler Alert* 

Not much has been revealed about the seventh season, but it is expected to follow the daily life of 14-year-old college student Sheldon in 1994–95. We would like to emphasize that if the series is going to showcase the year 1995, then there’s a major possibility that we’ll see Sheldon going to Dixie Trek to meet Wil Wheaton. Moreover, it’s currently unknown if we will see Sheldon’s junior year in college and Georgie out on his own. 

There are other plotlines that aren’t confirmed either, as it is currently unknown whether George Sr. will die this season or not. However, if we assume that the time jump between seasons stays the same, then this will be the one where Sheldon is 14 years old, and since it was the latest season renewed, they’ll very likely kill off George Sr. at some point in the season if the creators want to make this the last season of the series, as it has been hinted by the creators previously.

Moreover, the plot is also expected to pick up from the final episode of the sixth season, “A Tornado, a 10-Hour Flight, and a Darn Fine Ring.” The episode is directed by Alex Reid and written by Steve Molaro, Jeremy Howe, Nadiya Chettiar, Steve Holland, Connor Kilpatrick, and Ben Slaughter. If you recall, in this episode, the viewers get to see that Sheldon and Mary head to Germany while the rest of the Cooper family braves a tornado that is heading straight for Medford.

Take a look at the official promo of the final episode to recall the events which have transpired so far:

Young Sheldon Season 7 Cast: Who will reprise their roles in the new season?

If you’ve been keeping up, then there is no doubt that the main cast members from the sixth season are expected to reprise their roles in the new season, which includes Iain Armitage as Sheldon Cooper, Zoe Perry as Mary Cooper, Montana Jordan as George “Georgie” Cooper Jr., Raegan Revord as Missy Cooper, Annie Potts as Meemaw, Jim Parsons as Sheldon Cooper (voice only), Matt Hobby as Jeff Difford, Wyatt McClure as Billy Sparks, Lance Barber as George Cooper Sr., and Emily Osment as Mandy McAllister.

The recurring cast members include Wallace Shawn as John Sturgis, Craig T. Nelson as Dale Ballard, Dan Byrd as Pastor Rob, Ryan Phuong as Tam Nguyen, Danielle Pinnock as Evelyn Ingram, and Rex Linn as Principal Tom Petersen. There can be some new additions or old faces coming back into the cast if the show creators want to expand the plotlines or include flashback scenes, which will be confirmed later once the release date for the new season is disclosed by the CBS network.

Until then, everything relating to the casting announcement is a rumor until verified by official sources. The television series was created by Chuck Lorre and Steven Molaro for CBS. It is also produced by Chuck Lorre Productions, Inc., in association with Warner Bros. Television. Lorre, Steven Molaro, Parsons, and Todd Spiewak are executive producers.

Young Sheldon Season 7 Episodes: Where to stream?

When renewed, the next season was anticipated to include at least 22 episodes, and it is meant to be consistent with its predecessor. But now, the official episode count may vary owing to the ongoing strikes, which may have prompted the makers to slash the episode count by reducing the season to 15 to 18 episodes so that production isn’t rushed once the strikes conclude. We would also like to highlight that the filming is on hold, due to which the network has avoided releasing details about the new episodes’ titles and synopsis in order to avoid spoilers. 

The network will thus be unable to issue any fresh promotional materials for a certain period of time, which means we will simply have to wait and speculate!

On the other hand, if the readers want to receive updates on any changes and when the show premieres on the respective streaming platforms, they can also enable notifications on the respective platforms. The upcoming season, along with all six previous seasons, is currently available to stream on CBS, Paramount Plus, and FuboTV, which are ideal platforms for international viewers. The series is also available to rent or buy on iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, Google Play, and Vudu, depending on the viewer’s location, with membership plans that the users can choose from.

Young Sheldon Season 7 Frequently Asked Questions

Will Season 7 be the series’ final season?

Executive producer Steve Holland has hinted about the potential end of the show in an exclusive interview with TVLine, quoting, “We’ve certainly started to talk about [season 7 being the end]… When you’re in the middle of a season, it’s such a grind that we haven’t had too many in-depth conversations. But now, as we’re getting to the end [of Season 6], we’ve started to talk about it more.”

“There are certain things we know we want to hit next season, and there are certain things where, if it’s the end versus if it’s just [another season], those things might be different. It’s not my decision to make. I don’t think we’ll know for a while, but I don’t think it will affect the first half of [Season 7]; I think it will play out the same either way. But as we get near the end, I think it will play out differently depending on whether this is, or is not the final season.”

Outside of the USA, where can you stream the show?

The series is available in various regions which, includes the United Kingdom, where Young Sheldon is aired on the free-to-air channel E4. Moreover, in October and November 2021, Netflix in Australia, Canada, and the United Kingdom picked up the streaming rights to the show. For Indian viewers, the series is available exclusively on Prime Video, with all the episodes from the last six seasons. 

Is there any new trailer for Season 7?

The network hasn’t released any new promos for the seventh season as filming hasn’t commenced, leaving a lot of time for the official marketing to begin, which usually begins a month or two before the premiere. We’ll just have to wait and see what the next few months have in store for us in relation to the 2023 Writers Guild of America strike along with the 2023 SAG-AFTRA strike, as everything concerning the filming status is neither here nor there!

Due to this, we are certain that no new promos will be released anytime soon. In the meantime, check out the official trailer for Young Sheldon Season 6 to recall the events:
