Having released four seasons, it is still a wonder to see a spinoff series that features a young version of your favorite nerd.. ‘Young Sheldon’ is based on the early childhood of the fictional scientist Sheldon Cooper from ‘Big Bang Theory. Jim Parsons, who came up with the idea for the show, is also narrating each episode.
‘Young Sheldon’ was released in 2017 as a prequel show by CBS. It didn’t take long for the show to prove that it was a fan favorite when the ratings began to fly off the roof. Soon after, ‘Young Sheldon’ was renewed and premiered four seasons flaunting its success at every turn. So what’s in store for the little nerd who is going to make heads turn?
Young Sheldon Season 5: Renewal
This may not come as a surprise, but due to the success of the previous seasons, ‘Young Sheldon’ was renewed for the fifth season and the sixth and seventh seasons. This decision by CBS was made in March 2021, following the positive ratings and high expectations for the Sitcom.
Young Sheldon Season 5: Release Date
Unfortunately, there has been no official announcement on the release date for season 5 of ‘Young Sheldon.’ Since the fourth season was slightly delayed due to the pandemic situation, the show could only premiere its last episode on May 13, 2021. This is slightly off from the show’s usual release schedule.
So looking at how things have started to get better in the television industry, the production unit should begin filming ‘Young Sheldon’ any time soon. If they decide to release based on their first three seasons, the fifth installment should have a premiere date in September 2022.
Young Sheldon Season 5: Episodes
The Sitcom series was originally planned to have 22 episodes each season. However, the fourth season had to break away from its tradition due to the pandemic situation and feature only 18 episodes. So due to this, one can only hope that the recovery from the pandemic would prompt the production team to revert to 22 episodes.
Since nothing is official yet, fans have to wait till any further announcements to know more about ‘Young Sheldon’ season 5.
