As a rule, a spin-off rarely surpasses its predecessor. But we can’t apply this rule to Young Sheldon, a comedy series, which premiered last September on CBS. You may have concerned about whether there will be a next season of Young Sheldon on CBS? Luckily, back in January, CBS announced that the network had picked up Young Sheldon for a second season.
We couldn't be happier to announce that #YoungSheldon has been renewed for Season 2! 🎉 Thank you for tuning in every week and helping make Young Sheldon TV's #1 new comedy: https://t.co/9Osh20ycBy pic.twitter.com/vn9kEV0eyY

By the way, CBS has also recently renewed eleven prime-time shows. You may use search or click/tap the CBS tag to find the most recent data about your favorite television series. Actually, the decision on renewal was fair since Young Sheldon has showcased the astonishing statistics during its premiere.
The Pilot has garnered 17.209 million viewers with a 3.82 demo rating among adults 18-49. The following episodes have drawn not less than eleven million each. Given the fact that the show’s prototype, The Big Bang Theory, gained success in the later seasons, we might expect more impressive results from the spin-off in the future. In any case, it’s clear now that Young Sheldon would become a long-term television project on CBS.
Nonetheless, it would be fair to note here that Young Sheldon has received a bit ambivalent response from critics and viewers. Assuredly, most of the viewers found this comedy series exciting. However, some critics, such as Glenn Garvin (Reason) has noted that this show “is not ready for prime time.” But in general, we observed mostly positive reviews. On Rotten Tomatoes, the first round of Young Sheldon holds a score of 6.61/10 and a 76% approval rating from critics, while the viewers have evaluated the current season at 3.6/5/67%. On Metacritic, the indicators were a bit worse, 63/100 and 4.6/10, among critics/viewers, respectively. At the same time, on IMDb, Young Sheldon has an appropriate score of 6.9/10 ~ 13,000 votes.
Summing up, Young Sheldon is a comedy series with tremendous potential. Without a doubt, this show will be continuing for at least ten seasons on CBS, in our opinion. So, if you are a fan of Young Sheldon, you may breathe a sigh of relief since it’s quite unlikely that CBS decides to cancel this show in the foreseeable future.
What’s The Show Young Sheldon About?
If you didn’t have a chance to get acquainted with this comedy series yet, we’d suggest you read a brief overview of Young Sheldon below. Or else, you may scroll down to learn more about the possible release date for the upcoming season.
The story focuses on Sheldon Cooper, a nine-year-old gifted kid who attends a high school, skipping four grades thanks to his unique intellectual abilities. Sheldon is a prodigy that’s why it’s too complicated for him to interact with his classmates and neighbors. To protect her child against bullies, Sheldon’s mother admonishes the boy to tell others that his father is the football coach and his brother is on the team. By the way, Sheldon’s less-intellectual older brother attends the same grade. Sheldon also has a twin sister who, though doesn’t possess such outstanding mind, but instead is more socially integrated and witty.
On The Release Date For Season 2
As we have mentioned above, CBS has renewed its “most-watched new comedy on any network in 18 years,” Young Sheldon, for another season. The network is going to release the second installment in the 2018-19 broadcast season, given the official announcement. But the exact date is yet to be set. However, in our opinion, we have to expect Young Sheldon Season 2 this fall, in September 2018, given the current schedule of the comedy series. Nonetheless, we are looking forward to the official data from CBS. And we’ll update this article when the broadcaster gives us any additional data on the subject. For now, stay tuned for updates. We’ll keep you informed.
