Moreover, CBS has revealed that the seventh and final season will produce 14 episodes. The comedy will conclude with a one-hour series finale on Thursday, May 16 at 8/7c. The seventh season was the last ordered as part of a three-season pickup by the network in 2021.

Chuck Lorre and Steven Molaro created the prequel to CBS' The Big Bang Theory. They executive produce with Parsons, Steve Holland, Nick Bakay and Todd Spiewak. Warner Bros. Television and Chuck Lorre Productions produce.

"As a prequel to one of the biggest comedies, Young Sheldon proved lightning can strike twice," said Amy Reisenbach, President, CBS Entertainment. "It set itself apart with a remarkable cast that felt like a family from the first moment we saw them on screen and brought characters to life with unique heartfelt stories that drew audiences in from the start. We extend a sincere thank you to executive producers Chuck Lorre, Steve Molaro and Steve Holland and the entire writing and producing teams for six wonderful seasons. We look forward to seeing their final season unfold and giving it a proper sendoff with the best episodes yet for their fans to enjoy."

"Being able to tell the origin of Sheldon Cooper, and expanding the story to include the entire Cooper family has been a wonderful experience," added Holland, Molaro and Lorre. "We are grateful to our fans for embracing this chapter of the Coopers these past six seasons, and on behalf of the entire Young Sheldon family, we're excited to share this final season with you."
