Warner Bros. Discovery is set to extend the reach of its popular series “Young Sheldon” by bringing it to Netflix on November 24, 2023.
This move follows the recent announcement that the show, a prequel to the beloved CBS sitcom “The Big Bang Theory,” will be concluding its successful run after seven seasons.
Fans eager to catch up on the adventures of young Sheldon Cooper, portrayed by Iain Armitage, will now have the opportunity to do so on Netflix.
The final season of “Young Sheldon” is scheduled to premiere on February 15, 2023, with a one-hour series finale slated for May 16.
The series, which debuted in 2017, has been a hit, captivating audiences with the story of a 9-year-old Sheldon Cooper, a child prodigy living in Medford, Texas.
Jim Parsons, who plays the adult Sheldon on “The Big Bang Theory,” served as executive producer and narrator for the prequel series.
While “Young Sheldon” will continue to be available for streaming on Max, Warner Bros.
Discovery’s decision to bring it to Netflix opens up the show to a broader audience.
Netflix subscribers will have access to seasons 1-5, with the sixth season remaining exclusive to Max for the time being.
Notably, the seventh season of “Young Sheldon” will be shorter than its predecessors due to disruptions in production caused by dual Hollywood strikes.
Fans were given a hint about Sheldon’s future during the previous season when he began compiling an extensive catalog of college educational grants, suggesting an imminent journey to the California Institute of Technology and linking the storyline to “The Big Bang Theory.”
Amy Reisenbach, president of CBS Entertainment, expressed gratitude to the show’s executive producers and creative teams, noting that “Young Sheldon” distinguished itself with a remarkable cast and unique, heartfelt stories that resonated with audiences.
The show’s final season is anticipated to deliver a fitting conclusion, and Reisenbach looks forward to celebrating it with the best episodes yet for the fans to enjoy.
As the final season of “Young Sheldon” approaches its CBS debut on February 15 at 8:00 p.m. ET, fans both on Max and now on Netflix are gearing up for the conclusion of a series that proved lightning can strike twice, successfully carving its own path while paying homage to the iconic humor of “The Big Bang Theory.”
