For 9-year-old 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 king. And while the vulnerable, gifted and somewhat naïve Sheldon deals with the world, his very normal family must find a way to deal with him.
CBS announced today that Young Sheldon has been renewed for three more seasons, which will take the comedy to at least Season 7. The good news is the second multi-season pickup for the show, which was last renewed for two seasons back in 2019.
T With The Big Bang Theory long over, Young Sheldon has stepped in as TV's most-watched comedy with nearly 10 million viewers each week.
