Young Sheldon season 6 will continue the story of Coopers as the hit CBS show left season 5 with many unanswered questions.
Having a prequel show based on the original series s’ main lead is not often gone down well in recent history. But when the character is Sheldon Cooper, there is not much you can get wrong portraying his younger years as a prequel.
Sheldon Cooper is a unique character in the sitcom universe brilliantly played by the talented Jim Parsons. It wasn’t a surprise when only Parson’s character got a prequel as opposed to other characters of the Big Bang Theory.
Young Sheldon is a light-hearted comedy show that follows the story of 9-year-old Sheldon Cooper and his family in East Texas.
The series showcases their childhood of Sheldon and how it shaped his personality, which we have already seen in the Big Bang Theory. There are subplots of side characters involving his family, making the show a wholesome watch.
Since the fifth season of Young Sheldon, fans have been questioning when will Young Sheldon season 6 come out? Well, the good news is that we finally have confirmation from creators on the next installment of Young Sheldon season 6; let’s check it out.
WHEN WILL YOUNG SHELDON SEASON 6 PREMIER?
Young Sheldon last aired on 19th May 2022 with 22 episodes in season 5.
On 23rd June, the show’s Twitter page confirmed the Young Sheldon season 6 release date as 29th September 2022.
This Young Sheldon season 6 release date confirmation is consistent with the show s’ renewal schedule in September.
Unlike Young Sheldon, seasons 4 and 5, like any other Tv show, were delayed by the pandemic. All the different seasons have premiered in September.
It’s not confirmed how many episodes Young Sheldon season 6 will have, but the show has stuck around the 21–22-episode mark except for season 4, which had 18.
HOW MANY SEASONS OF YOUNG SHELDON WILL FURTHER CBS TELECAST?
In 2019, CBS had renewed for two seasons, thus adding seasons 3 and 4 to the series.
Further down the line, in March 2021, the show was renewed for three seasons, which means the Big bang Theory prequel will be on air until 2024, taking it up to seven seasons. Any further renewals will depend on CBS and, of course, the ratings.
Speaking of ratings, Young Sheldon is the most-watched, Most-Watched Broadcast TV Comedies for the 2021-2022 Season. The show received an average total viewership of 9.27 million, and to put those numbers into context, the second most-watched show was Mom, with 6.98 million views.
It’s not rocket science why CBS renewed for three more seasons when the ratings are off the charts.
CBS Entertainment president Kelly Kahl said in Hollywood Reporter “Young Sheldon dominates the broadcast comedy landscape by over +2.5 million viewers and is the lynchpin of CBS’ top-rated Thursday comedy line-up. The humor, warmth, and heart exuded by the Cooper family is an undeniable hook for the millions of fans who tune in each week. We’re excited to see what the next three seasons have in store for a slightly older Sheldon and all the Coopers.”
YOUNG SHELDON SEASON 6 PLOT?
Young Sheldon’s Season 5 final episode, “A Clogged Pore, a Little Spanish and the Future,” set up interesting storylines for season 6. The first significant development we get is George Sr. (Sheldon s’ father) quitting his coaching job after being offered to coach Wilkins. George Sr. had been under pressure from the parents after the school had poorly performed in football games.
George Sr. joins Dale’s store but realizes it won’t be enough to make ends meet. Mary had already lost her job in the church after everyone learned that Georgie had got Mandy pregnant.
Fortunately for Mary, she gets a job in Brenda Sparks bowling alley, which George Sr. isn’t best pleased about. George decides not to work in Dale s’ store and sit at home drinking and watching TV all day.
Elsewhere, Georgie is looking for an additional source by selling cigarettes in the gaming room, for which Connie and he go to Mexico to buy supplies. They are caught on the border and call George for help.
Finally, Sheldon enters his teenage life as he gets his first pimple. He initially fears the impending changes but is calmed down by her sister Missy. The episode ends with Sheldon preparing to embrace puberty by changing his attire with a flash graphic t-shirt.
Young Sheldon Season 5 is the most mature and darker in this coming-of-age series, i.e., it tackles significant issues like unplanned pregnancy, puberty, and cheating. The fifth season laid out many plot points explored in season 6.
Starting with George Sr., it feels like the world is upside down for him as everything goes wrong. Lost his job, his kids became rebellious, and his wife hung out with the church s’ pastor and worked with Brenda Sparks,
If you watched the Big Bang theory, you might be aware of George s’ future. The cracks in his marriage have already begun as he turns from a loving father and football coach into a sulky jobless man.
Young Sheldon Season 6 will delve deep into his affair with Brenda Sparks and could end the season with his death.
Connie and Georgie are caught at the border by the police, which would again not end well. Connie would give the money for bail, which shut down her business as her savings for the baby also disappeared.
Mary is also contemplating life as a parent and a wife as she struggles to find comfort in God or her children. She has been growing closer to pastor Rob, who has been her crying shoulder.
Young Sheldon season 6 will again explore the dynamics of these two and how it affects the Cooper family.
Finally, Missy and Sheldon are into their teens, bringing about emotional and physical changes. We saw Missy hugging her mother as she broke down after a fight with George Sr.
It feels <issy is the glue holding the family together as she is a loving daughter to her parents and supports her two brothers. We expect Missy to be significantly involved in family problems in Young Sheldon Season 6.
Finally, Sheldon wearing the flash T-shirt in the season 5 finale signifies his transformation from a caterpillar to a cocoon. He has started accepting the changes as he looks forward to the new phase in life.
Young Sheldon season 6 will be a butterfly moment as he advances to new scientific and personal discoveries.
The changes in his family will also affect his personality and character development, which will be an actual storyline for Young Sheldon season 6.
