Young Sheldon renewed for two seasons
CBS today announced that it has renewed Young Sheldon for an additional two seasons, taking the show through to its fourth season in 2020/21.
"Thanks to Chuck Lorre's and Steve Molaro's outstanding creative leadership, YOUNG SHELDON has been a powerful performer for the Network with an audience that towers over most of the television landscape," said Kelly Kahl, President, CBS Entertainment. Added Thom Sherman, Senior Executive Vice President of Programming: "The Coopers are portrayed by an amazing cast, and we are looking forward to having the gifted writing staff mine even more of Sheldon's hilarious backstory and the warm family dynamic that has made this comedy a favorite with audiences for the past two seasons."
Young Sheldon is the #2 most-watched comedy series on TV, behind only The Big Bang Theory, and is averaging over 14.5 million viewers each week.
The double renewal comes as Young Sheldon's parent show, The Big Bang Theory, gets ready to bow out after twelve seasons on air.
