Young Sheldon is coming to an end. The news came as a surprise to all the fans as the series is far from concluding the story. Young Sheldon Season 7 is set to air next year and will mark the final season of Young Sheldon. The Big Bang Theory ended four years ago and now with the end of Young Sheldon, we are witnessing the end of a cult classic era. We are looking at what to expect from the Young Sheldon Season 7 and the details regarding the wrap-up plot. 

Season 7 Young Sheldon will be released on Max instead of the regular broadcasting channel CBS. The franchise has immense pressure to deliver a proper conclusion to the story of Young Sheldon and its cast. Given the Young Sheldon Season 6 finale, it is indeed going to be a tough job as the previous season nowhere hinted towards a conclusive plot. 

Behind the Big Bang: Why Young Sheldon Closes Its Doors After Season 7

Well, given the fact that Young Sheldon is a prequel to The Big Bang Theory, it has a predetermined conclusive story and that is why despite being one of the highest-grossing series it has to be wrapped. The makers tried their best to stretch the story of young Sheldon as far as possible but there is only so much you can play around with a character in a prequel. Hence, ready or not, it’s time to bid farewell to the Cooper family

Young Sheldon’s titular character has nothing much to offer to the audience but the rushed ending might alter the story of pivotal side characters. One of the major reasons for a rushed production is the Hollywood strikes that affected the release of other series as well like Yellowstone Season 5. The makers are finding it hard to manage the delayed production and are left with no option but to compromise on the number of episodes. 

Is Young Sheldon Committing the Same Mistake as Big Bang Theory?

The Big Band Theory and Young Sheldon

Young Sheldon might be making the same mistake as The Big Bang Theory by not considering the side character when concluding the storyline. The Big Bang Theory decided to wrap up when actor Jim Parson wanted to do something new as Sheldon’s character had nothing more to offer to the audience. Honestly, no one could argue with that as the actor did make a valid point. Sheldon achieved everything he wanted to but what about the pivotal side characters?

The plot ended abruptly without concluding the story of Raj. One of the most bizarre additions to the plot of The Big Bang Theory was the sudden pregnancy of the Hofstadter couple. Similarly, there are chances that season 7 Young Sheldon will have to rush the story of some favourite side characters like Missy, Meemaw, Mandy, and George, and as an audience, we are not ready for it. We will have to wait and watch how the final season unfold.

Even though the news of Young Shelton wrapping up came as a surprise, the audience has a bitter-sweet emotion when bidding farewell to one of their favorite sitcoms. 

Originally, Young Sheldon Season 7 was supposed to have 22 episodes. But due to the pressure of wrapping up quickly, it had to be limited to 14 episodes. The cutdown on episodes is a major concern for the fans as they don’t want to see rushed episodes and want to have a memorable farewell with their favorite characters.

Cast of Young Sheldon Season 7

Young Sheldon has been a memorable sitcom thanks to the pitch-perfect star cast. Jim ParsonsBig Bang Theory did lay the foundation for the beloved character of Sheldon Cooper but we have to give it to child actor Iain Armitage for meeting the high expectations head-on.
