We don’t have to wonder if Young Sheldon will be cancelled this time around since the show’s already been renewed through season seven. Will that be the end of this family comedy series? Stay tuned.
The Young Sheldon TV show stars Iain Armitage, Zoe Perry, Lance Barber, Annie Potts, Montana Jordan, Raegan Revord, Emily Osment, and Jim Parsons (narration). Guests include Matt Hobby, Craig T. Nelson, Emanuel Loarca, G.W. Bailey, Ed Begley Jr., Melissa Peterman, Dan Byrd, Jason Rogel, Francesca Xuereb, Wallace Shawn, Michael Trucco, and Brent Jennings. Revolving around the early life of The Big Bang Theory’s Sheldon Cooper (Parsons), this comedy series follows a gifted and naive young Sheldon (Armitage) as he navigates his way through life while confounding his very normal Texas family — parents George (Barber) and Mary (Perry), older brother Georgie (Jordan), and twin sister, Missy (Revord). Sheldon’s beloved Meemaw (Potts), his foul-mouthed, hard-drinking Texas grandmother, is very supportive of her grandson and his unique gifts.

Note: These are the final national ratings, including all live+same day viewing and DVR playback (through 3:00 AM). Early fast affiliate ratings (estimates) are indicated with an “*”.
