United States’ most watched comedy, Young Sheldon has been renewed for another three seasons on the CBS network. The decision confirms new episodes for the series derived from The Big Bang Theory (2006-2019) until the 2023/2024 season, when it will be in its seventh year.
The deal marks the largest automatic renewal received by the series – in 2019, CBS had confirmed another two years for the attraction. The decision is also the broadcaster’s first glimpse of its schedule for the 2021/2022 season – other productions have yet to make their destinations official.
“Under the skillful leadership of Chuck Lorre and Steve Molaro, this excellent cast and talented writers brought these wonderful characters to life,” said Kelly Kahl, president of CBS Entertainment, in an official statement.
“Young Sheldon dominates the frame of comedies broadcast by more than 2.5 million viewers and is the centerpiece of sitcom programming on Thursdays at CBS. The humor and heart exhaled by the Cooper family are an undeniable hook for millions of fans who tune in every week. We are excited to see what the next three seasons have in store for a slightly older Sheldon and all the Coopers, “he concluded.
Currently in his fourth season, Sheldon (Iain Armitage) is 11 years old, graduated from school and is on a summer job at a railway museum before going to college prematurely.
Young Sheldon is shown in Brazil by the paid channel Warner Channel. The first three seasons are also available on Globoplay, as well as all episodes of the parent series, The Big Bang Theory.
