The much-anticipated final season of Young Sheldon has finally received a premier date, post resolution of the SAG-AFTRA strike. Being one of CBS’ prime shows, its production was expediated and the cast finally got back to working together on Tuesday, November 21. 

When will Season 7 of Young Sheldon air and with how many episodes?

The seventh season of the show, been derailed from its original 2023 fall release, has promised February 15, 2024, as its airing date. Sadly, the final season will also be wrapped up in 14-15 episodes, instead of the usual 22 ones.

Who all will be coming back for Young Sheldon Season 7?

Season 7 of Young Sheldon will definitely be starring Ian Armitage (Sheldon Cooper), Zoe Perry (Mary Cooper), Lance Barber (George Cooper), Montana Jordan (Georgie Cooper), Raegan Revord (Missy Cooper), Annie Potts (Meemaw), and Emily Osment (Mandy).

Though the rest are not confirmed, it is expected that Melissa Peterman (Brenda Sparks), Dan Byrd (Pastor Rob), Wallace Shawn (Dr. John Sturgis), Wyatt McClure (Billy Sparks), and Craig T. Nelson (Dale Ballard) will return to the show for one last time, for a proper sendoff.

Where did Season 6 of Young Sheldon end?

Young Sheldon Season 6 ended on a tumultuous note, with Meemaw’s house smashed to bits by a raging tornado, and Sheldon and Mary worrying over the lack of response from their family. Their worry was valid as all phone lines were down and the mother-son duo were halfway across the world, in Germany, for Sheldon’s special summer program.

What is the plot of Season 7 of Young Sheldon?

Season 7 is the year Missy and Sheldon turn 14, and the latter goes off to Pasadena, California, to study at CalTech. It is also the year their father George dies. Since George’s infidelity has not been explicitly shown yet, that also remains a determining factor for the season’s plot arc.

The series may have begun with Sheldon at its core, but the entire Cooper family soon carved a niche in their viewers heart, becoming an indispensable part of the series. And losing George, the beloved Cooper patriarch, will not only be hard for the viewers. It will be toughest on Missy, the only sibling close enough to actually be shattered by the loss. This may also be a defining point as to why Missy never achieves her true potential in The Big Bang Theory.

What is the latest update on Young Sheldon Season 7?

An interesting update about the show, regarding Mandy, was innocently shared by Raegan ‘Missy’ Revord on her Instagram, when she posted a behind-the-scenes photo of the team shooting the show’s title sequence. The group photo surprisingly featured a fresh entry, Mandy and baby Ceecee. This update comes off as a pleasant surprise as it means that Mandy is finally a Cooper now, if not by blood or law (yet!) but by love.
