Young Sheldon Season 7

The popular sitcom Young Sheldon is entering its final season on CBS, and the network released several new photos from the Season 7 premiere.

Nevertheless, the series became America’s most-watched comedy, nabbing that prestigious metric after Big Bang Theory left in 2019. And for good reason, as many would agree that Young Sheldon is funny and charming in its own right.
