The Big Bang Theory spin-off Young Sheldon; all seasons streaming now on Prime Video

After the astronomical success of The Big Bang Theory, one of the most popular sitcoms of the 21st century, its cast became household names, with their characters becoming a part of every pop-culture reference. Jim Parsons, who plays the eccentric scientist Sheldon Cooper, was perhaps the most loved among the lot. As a spinoff of The Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon has been an unsurprising hit since its debut in 2017. Created by Chuck Lorre and Steven Molaro, the show follows the life of Sheldon Cooper, from age nine, through his childhood, spent with his family in Texas. Already out with seven exciting seasons, viewers can now binge-watch all seasons of the coming-of-age sitcom exclusively on Prime Video in India. 

But before that, here’s everything you need to know about Young Sheldon and the latest Season 7:

Why is the series ending with Season 7?

As was inevitable, Young Sheldon was expected to end, albeit on a high note, with Sheldon’s childhood and adulthood coming together. Tying the spinoff to the original  show, creators have seeded roots with easter eggs, and future plotlines, exciting the hardcore fans at each iconic reveal. While Sheldon has now gone from wearing checkered shirts to old Sheldon’s iconic two-shirt ensemble, there’s a lot more that fans are waiting to be revealed in the upcoming episodes of season 7. Will major events like Sheldon’s father George Sr. 's adultery and his death, that shaped a lot of what adult Sheldon was, be showcased in the spinoff? 

Theme song strikes all the right chords

Young Sheldon's theme song is a track titled "Mighty Little Man," written by Steve Burns of the Blue's Clues fame, which resonates with the essence of the show. His first album, Songs for Dustmites, was released in 2003, and Mighty Little Man is the opening track of his debut album. The lyrics, which include lines like "A sudden crash, a sonic boom/Changes everything he knew," could be about a scientist or a superhero – something that Sheldon, young or old, would definitely approve of. Interestingly, Burns has also appeared in a few episodes of Young Sheldon as a Trekkie named Nathan.

What can fans expect in the upcoming season 7?

Season Seven of Young Sheldon has picked up where the previous season left off. At the close of Season Six, Sheldon and his mother, Mary, were boarding a plane to Germany, where Sheldon was scheduled to spend the summer. Meanwhile, a tornado demolishes Meemaw’s house back in Medford, Texas. The first episode of season 7, titled "A Weiner Schnitzel and Underwear in a Tree," thrusts Sheldon and his mother, Mary, into a dilemma following the unfortunate tornado. While Mary and Sheldon are in Germany, their families grapple with the aftermath of the disaster. Now, audiences are excited to see where the upcoming episodes will take the characters and how the creators will give them a fitting end with the conclusion of the series.

Will there be more spinoffs from The Big Bang Theory franchise after Young Sheldon?

While Young Sheldon did have the success of its predecessor as a good head-start, the series gained a dedicated fan-base on its own. Through a heartwarming storyline and lovable characters, fans fell in love with Young Sheldon all on their own. Keeping in account the success that this The Big Bang Theory spinoff received, fans are now speculating if any other characters will have their unique spin offs made (A young version of Leonard, or Harvard would be hilarious to witness!). Fortunately for fans, The Big Bang Theory co-creator Chuck Lorre is currently in the early stages of one. In a November interview, Lorre said the show was still in the early stages of development. 

The seventh and final season of Young Sheldon is already streaming with three episodes. The sitcom started streaming on Prime Video shortly after its television premiere on February 15. In the upcoming episodes, viewers can expect a blend of humour, nostalgia, and heartfelt moments as the Cooper family navigates through their new reality. The journey of Young Sheldon will end with a one-hour Season 7 finale, tying all loose ends and concluding the series, on May 16, 2024, exclusively on Prime Video in India.
