Fans of the hit series “Young Sheldon” are eagerly awaiting news about the release date for Season 7. However, as of now, there is a cloud of uncertainty surrounding the show’s return to the small screen.
In 2021, CBS announced a three-season renewal for “Young Sheldon,” guaranteeing the show’s existence at least until Season 7. Historically, the network has managed to maintain an annual fall TV premiere for the latest seasons of the show.
Unfortunately, the ongoing strikes by the Writers Guild of America (WGA) and the Screen Actors Guild‐American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA) have disrupted the usual production timelines in Hollywood. These strikes are driven by industry professionals seeking improved wages and other employment assurances.
The impact of these strikes on “Young Sheldon” is evident. While the show was previously a staple in CBS’s fall lineup, the current circumstances make it increasingly unlikely that Season 7 will hit screens this coming autumn.
As of now, the series does not have an official premiere date. Nevertheless, a schedule from Deadline, updated after the strikes commenced, still lists “Young Sheldon” on CBS’s fall 2023 schedule, airing on Thursday nights.
Whether production for Season 7 has begun remains unclear. Unless a substantial amount of footage was recorded prior to the strikes, it’s improbable that the series will meet its typical late September premiere window.
