When Will Young Sheldon Season 7 Premiere?
CBS has yet to announce an official release date for Young Sheldon season 7. Originally, the new season was expected to premiere in Fall 2023 according to CBS’s typical schedule. However, the ongoing Writers Guild of America strike has put many shows on hold, making the exact release date for Young Sheldon unclear. Fans will have to wait for an official announcement from CBS to know when season 7 will air.
In the meantime, viewers can catch reruns of earlier seasons on syndication and CBS outlets. Past seasons are also available on streaming platforms such as HBO Max.
Who is in the Cast for Season 7?
The main cast members are all expected to return for Young Sheldon season 7.
- Iain Armitage as young Sheldon Cooper

- Annie Potts as the warm-hearted Meemaw, Sheldon’s grandmother

What Might Happen in the Plot for Season 7?
CBS and the showrunners have not released an official synopsis for Young Sheldon season 7 yet. However, the plot will likely pick up where season 6 left off.
At the end of season 6, Sheldon graduated high school as valedictorian and had to decide which college to attend. He ignored his family’s wishes and refused to go to Rice University in Houston, instead chosing Caltech in Pasadena to be near his idol, Dr. Linkletter. Season 7 will likely show Sheldon adjusting to college life on the West Coast during his early teen years.
Viewers can expect more of Sheldon’s trademark bluntness and eccentricities as he tries to adapt to college classes, professors, and students much older than him. His mother will continue to be worried about him being so far from home at such a young age. The season may also cover Sheldon getting his bachelor’s degree by age 16.
There are still two more seasons left in Jim Parsons’ (adult Sheldon’s) original deal for Young Sheldon, so major life events like Sheldon meeting Leonard, starting graduate school at Caltech, and developing his career will likely happen in seasons 8 or 9.
Will There be a Trailer or Sneak Peek?
CBS has not released a trailer or sneak peek for Young Sheldon season 7 yet. The first look at footage for the new season likely won’t arrive until Fall 2023 at the earliest.
However, once CBS announces a firm season 7 premiere date, fans can expect to see a full trailer 1-2 months before the release. This will give a glimpse into the new season and storylines. Teaser videos and photos from the new season may also become available in late summer 2023.
For now, fans will have to speculate and theorize on what adventures young Sheldon Cooper will experience next based on where season 6 left off. The Cooper family dealing with Sheldon being away at college has lots of comedic potential for season 7.
