Young Sheldon Season 7 Release Date: Will it premiere in September 2023 or not?

Firstly, we want to clarify to our loyal readers that the previously confirmed release date for Young Sheldon Season 7, which was expected to be a part of the 2023–34 fall broadcast schedule for the CBS network, has been overturned as the network has undergone some major changes over the last few weeks! Yes, it’s right, and all the credit for these sudden changes in the fall schedule goes to the ongoing dual strikes, which include the 2023 WGA strike along with the 2023 SAG-AFTRA strike, that sadly have not reached any agreement, putting Hollywood production houses at a standstill.

Moreover, the writing and production of the series across various networks, in which CBS has also been affected, has caused a major delay in the completion of scripts on time, along with delays in the shoots, which usually begin by late August if the series wants to release in the usual primetime fall schedule. The negotiations are still ongoing with the parties involved, due to which there is no speculation left in our minds as to why the network decided to revise its fall schedule for the best because, by the looks of the dual strikes, it seems they are going to last until October 2023!

Hence, there is no chance that the beloved coming-of-age television series will be able to premiere in September 2023, let alone the fans should have any expectations from the network to confirm any official release date in the coming weeks! One of the main reasons is that the CBS network recently released a revised 2023–24 fall lineup, in which Young Sheldon has not been mentioned to fill the void of the lack of shows that have been shifted. This gives us an understanding of why the changes were necessary to keep the flow of content consistent for the viewers. 

As a result, we speculate that Young Sheldon Season 7 might be rescheduled to premiere in the first quarter of 2024, which begins in January and lasts until March. 

Of course! This can only happen if the production begins later this year once the dual strikes reach an agreement that will allow the network to keep the same time slot, which is every Thursday night at 8 p.m. on a weekly basis, without causing any unwanted changes in the new schedule. We would also like to emphasize that Deadline recently reported that an alternate release month is also bound to happen only if, without a resolution or meaningful movement between AMPTP and WGA by October, the new 2023–24 series might be delayed until autumn 2024, putting certain sophomore and bubble shows—even beyond broadcast—in danger!

It can be 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.

Hence, we ask fans to keep an eye on social media for more information, which will ultimately be acknowledged later. Until then, we’ll just have to wait and see what direction the writers and crew will take going forward! In the meantime, check out the official renewal announcement as shared by the show’s Twitter handle confirming the renewal of the series, quoting, “There’s still more Season 5 to come, but in case you needed a reminder— we’ll be back for even more #YoungSheldon with Season 6 AND Season 7!” Take a look at the official post below: 

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

Before moving forward, we want to inform you that the following passage contains major spoilers that will unravel details about the Cooper family. So, if you don’t want to know all the crucial details in case you have already streamed the show, then we urge you to skip this section for a spoiler-free article!

Due to the ongoing dual strikes and delayed production, we speculate that the new 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.”

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 that have transpired so far:

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

If you have been keeping up with the world of entertainment, there is no doubt that rumors often swirl around like wildfire, igniting major anticipation among fans. One such topic that has recently captured the attention of eager enthusiasts is the casting announcement for the upcoming season. However, it is important to tread cautiously amidst this sea of speculation, as until then, everything relating to the casting announcement remains a mere rumor until verified by official sources. 

But for your consideration, we speculate that the following 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.

On the other hand, the recurring cast members who are also expected to reprise their roles 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.

Last but not least, this beloved coming-of-age 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 Official Episode Count: How many will be there, and 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 stuff for a certain period of time, which means we will simply have to wait and speculate!

In addition to this, 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 Young Sheldon Season 7 be the last season of the series?

Even though nothing has been confirmed about the future of the show, executive producer Steve Holland has come forward and 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 Young Sheldon?

The series is available in various regions, which include 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. For home media, the sixth season will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on September 5, 2023.

These streaming platforms are subject to change in the future as they will be available based on a license agreement that tends to expire after a while! So, the readers should keep in touch with all the updates that might happen in the coming months.

Is there any new trailer for Young Sheldon Season 7?

Unfortunately, the network hasn’t released any new official promos for the seventh season as filming hasn’t even commenced yet, 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!

Moreover, The Writers Guild recently released a video saying that the studios “are in the process of wrestling amongst themselves” for a deal to end the ongoing writers’ strike. 

“We are not on strike out of greed, nor do we begrudge the companies their success or deny their struggles. We must all succeed together,” WGA Negotiating Committee co-chair Chris Keyser says in the video addressing WGA members. “But the changes that the companies have orchestrated in the business have made the profession of writing untenable for us and for everyone who comes after us. And that hasn’t changed because they waited 102 days to talk to us and have taken their time since then. Our feet and backs may ache, but our cause is the same. Our case is the same.”

As a result, 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:
