Young Sheldon Season 6 News & Updates: Everything We Know

The Coopers continue their story in Young Sheldon season 6, with season 5 setting up several new characters arcs in The Big Bang Theory prequel.

The Coopers’ story will continue in Young Sheldon season 6. CBS’ premier comedy expanded its storytelling with a more well-rounded Young Sheldon season 5. Each member of the Cooper family was given their individual storylines on top of the clan’s collective arc, making them more endearing and relatable. As a result, there’s sustained interest in what’s next for the Coopers in Young Sheldon season 6.

In Young Sheldon season 5, the Coopers went through many changes. George (Lance Barber) and Mary (Zoe Perry) were both tempted to start their own affairs, signaling the beginning of the destruction of their marriage. Missy went through typical high school experiences and dealt with peer pressure, while Georgie was met with an unexpected pregnancy. Meemaw (Annie Potts) started a thriving business. As for the socially-inept genius, Sheldon tackled new challenges as a freshman at East College Tech.

Towards the end of season 5, however, it became clear that Young Sheldon was becoming more of a CBS family dramedy as it tackled more mature storylines. It hints that it is ready to veer away from The Big Bang Theory formula – which was a straightforward comedy. Here’s everything we know about Young Sheldon season 6.

Young Sheldon Season 6 Renewal: How Many Years Are Left?

Before The Big Bang Theory wrapped up in May 2019, CBS ordered two more seasons of Young Sheldon, guaranteeing its third and fourth seasons. As time went by and the prequel continued to establish itself, the network awarded Young Sheldon an additional three-year renewal in 2021, extending its run until season 7, which will air between 2023 and 2024. This means that after Young Sheldon season 6, The Big Bang Theory offshoot still has one more year, and then CBS gets to decide whether to extend it beyond that point or not.

The core cast of Young Sheldon is expected to return for Young Sheldon season 6. Meanwhile, supporting characters like Ed Begley Jr.’s Dr. Linkletter and Wyatt McClure’s Billy Sparks will no doubt appear sporadically throughout the year. Furthermore, Emily Osment’s Mandy is confirmed for Young Sheldon season 6 as a series regular, implying that George’s current storyline will continue beyond season 5.

Knowing full well that Young Sheldon still has two more seasons guaranteed, CBS can play the long game concerning its storytelling. Young Sheldon season 5 features many changes in the Cooper household as the kids grow up and their parents’ marriage quietly deteriorates. For Young Sheldon season 6, two clear plotlines will be carried over. Firstly, Georgie and Mandy’s pregnancy, and secondly, the continued breakdown of the Coopers’ marriage, which will lead to George’s cheating scandal and death.

Young Sheldon Season 6 Release Date Prediction

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Young Sheldon, much like the rest of Hollywood, had to adjust to the circumstances at the time. That meant shorter seasons and delayed premiere dates. As the global health crisis dwindles and studios get back to their normal workloads, it’s safe to say that Young Sheldon season 6’s premiere will be back on its typical September date — either during the third or fourth week of the said month. It’s difficult to say when exactly it will return to the airwaves, but it is confirmed to maintain its Thursday night timeslot.
