The popular sitcom Young Sheldon is entering its final season on CBS, and the network released several new photos from the Season 7 premiere.
When Young Sheldon was first announced several years ago, some scoffed at the premise, feeling that its parent series, The Big Bang Theory, was oversaturated,
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.
