Young Sheldon Season 7 Release Date: When will it premiere on CBS?
Firstly, we regret to inform the readers that the highly anticipated seventh season of “Young Sheldon” will not be available to stream anytime soon, and certainly not in July 2023!
Despite the fact that the series was officially renewed back in March 2021 by CBS as a part of a multi-season order until the 2023–24 broadcast season, the series has been able to gather some amazing reception and viewership from fans around the world, which led to an easy approval! The season’s release this month is impossible, with one of the reasons being that the final episode of the sixth season aired recently, which makes it way too early for the show’s return.
But we have noticed that ever since the renewal was announced, many fans are curious to know when the filming will commence for the much anticipated Young Sheldon Season 7, especially after the sudden writer’s strike breakout, which doesn’t seem to stop anytime soon that has highly caused doubts about whether the creators will be able to release the new season for CBS’s 2023–24 fall broadcasting season or not.
To be very honest with you, right now, it seems like urgent meetings about postponing the series’ release might have already begun.
So, until there is any confirmation, we speculate that the ongoing 2023 Writers Guild of America strike has the potential to change the primetime fall schedule, and the season might get rescheduled entirely for next year, with the premiere date set for early to mid-2024 with new episodes dropping on a weekly basis every Thursday at 8 p.m. on the network.
Many reports have also suggested that CBS has put a hold on major production until next year. Hence, any updates relating to this subject are just pure conjecture. But on the bright side, we speculate that a newly revised schedule might also be heading our way!
As it has already been hinted at by George Cheeks, President and CEO of CBS and Chief Content Officer, who stated during a keynote at Banff moderated by Deadline’s Peter White, “We wanted to build our schedule for when the world goes back to normal.” Further adding, “Once we had done that, once we locked it in, we spent a lot of time focusing on what it was going to look like.” He elaborated that a revised CBS fall scheduling plan is expected to be revealed soon.
“First of all, obviously it’s going to be very reality-heavy,” he added.
In conclusion, it’s not farfetched to assume that the content of the CBS fall schedule can be changed as production is assumed to resume later this year, which makes the chances of the show’s return this year seem minimal. It’s only a matter of time until the new schedule becomes known in order to avoid any undue obstacles. As a result, we ask fans to be patient and keep an eye on social media for more information on the potential new release date, which will ultimately be acknowledged by the creators in the near future.

Young Sheldon Season 7 Plot: What to expect?
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.
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. However, assuming the time jump between seasons stays the same, this will be the season where Sheldon is 14 years old, and since it was the last season renewed, they’ll very likely kill off George Sr. at some point in the season and have to make this the last season.
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. In the 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 return?
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 to the cast if the show creators want to expand the plotlines, which will be confirmed later once the release date for the new season is disclosed by the CBS network.
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?
The season is expected to include at least 22 episodes with an average duration of 18–21 minutes per episode. We would also like to highlight that the show creators can also increase or decrease the episode count depending on the current status of the writer strike and the possibility of an actor’s strike, which can cause major delays in production.
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
When was Young Sheldon Season 7 renewed?
This season was renewed on March 30, 2021, along with Seasons 5 and 6 as part of a multi-season order, which concluded for the 2023-24 CBS broadcast season.
If the season is delayed, when will it be released?
If production is delayed owing to the writer’s strike, then the seventh season might be aired in 2024 since the network may choose not to start shooting new episodes without a finished script, causing further delays.
Will it be the last 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.”
Is there any new trailer for Season 7?
The filming of the new season hasn’t begun because of the ongoing writer’s strike. So, there is no way that the network will be able to release any new promotional material for the fans to learn about the plot of the next season. It will be published later once the production concludes.
Outside of the USA, where can you stream the show?
In the United Kingdom, Young Sheldon is aired on the free-to-air channel E4. 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 various episodes.
