Young Sheldon Season 5

When it was first announced that CBS had been growing a prequel show about Sheldon Cooper in The Big Bang Theory, not many people knew what to consider it. The original series focuses on a group of awkward, genius man friends who don’t know how to act when a hot neighbor moves in next door, starring Kaley Cuoco as Penny, Johnny Galecki as Leonard Hofstadter, and Jim Parsons as Sheldon. Reportedly, Parsons had the first idea for the prequel series, told The Big Bang Theory producers concerning it, and soon enough Young Sheldon was greenlit with a straight-to-series order (Deadline).

Young Sheldon celebrities Iain Armitage as the lead character, together with narration in each episode accomplished by Parsons. The series was an instant hit, making a Certified New 76% rating on Rotten Tomatoes for Season 1, and it has been a favorite for audiences. In reality, it ends up that people love Armitage’s genius kid so much that the show has been renewed for three more seasons, which means it’s guaranteed to get to Season 7 (through Deadline). Now with Season 4 of Young Sheldon broadcasting its final episode on May 13, 2021, fans are ready to learn anything they can about the upcoming fifth season.

This is what we know so far about Young Sheldon Season 5.

Will There Be A Season 5 Of Young Sheldon?

Yes, there will be the fifth season of Young Sheldon. And in even better news for lovers of this sitcom, CBS has revived Young Sheldon for three more seasons after Season 4, which would bring the show up to Season 7 and could keep it on air until at least 2024.

Kelly Kahl, CBS Entertainment’s president, first shared the renewal information in March. “The comedy, heart, and warmth exuded by the Cooper family is an undeniable hook for the countless fans who tune in each week. We’re excited to see what the next 3 seasons have in store for a slightly older Sheldon and the Coopers,” she said.

Young Sheldon Season 5 Story Details

At this point in the story of Young Sheldon, Sheldon is currently 11-years-old and is currently in his first season of college. There is no sign that season 4 will soon wrap up the school year, so odds are that the sitcom is stretching the continuing story out until next year. Anticipate some more episodic experiences for the Coopers as the socially inept genius further settles in his new life as East Texas Tech; maybe Dr. Sturgis may even find himself back at the school despite initially refusing reinstatement. Besides that, however, it’s safe to assume that Young Sheldon season 5 will begin setting up the inevitable fall out of George Sr. and Mary’s union — something which has been established in The Big Bang Theory. Young Sheldon has able to dance around the dark storyline in the past couple of years but as the deadline progresses, it won’t have any option but to finally tackle it.

Who is in the cast of Young Sheldon Season 5?

Alongside Armitage as the title character, Young Sheldon also stars Zoe Perry as his mother, Mary Cooper, Lance Barber as George Cooper Sr., his dad, Raegan Revord as Melissa Missy Cooper, Sheldon’s twin sister, and Montana Jordan as George Georgie Cooper Jr., Sheldon and Missy’s older brother. Their family is filled with Annie Potts as Constance Connie Tucker, Sheldon’s grandmother on his mother’s side who he predicts Meemaw and is quite close to.

With four seasons under its belt, Young Sheldon has an expansive cast of supporting and guest personalities. Some of the very important to Pastor Jeff (Matt Hobby), who has trouble coming to terms with Sheldon’s atheism, Wallace Shawn as John Sturgis, a former professor of physics that has a dating history together with Meemaw, and Ryan Phuong as Tam Nguyen, Sheldon’s best friend who keeps him grounded and introduces him to things aside from science. Tam, who seems to have PTSD from a challenging childhood in Vietnam, doesn’t have other friends aside from Sheldon, so the two boys find common ground in their shared experience of isolation and being ostracized.

Young Sheldon has also had several noteworthy guest stars through time, several being Frances Conroy, Melanie Lynskey, Cyndi Lauper, and Bob Newhart.
