Kids grow up so fast these days, especially when you're a child prodigy. Is it a time vortex of some kind, or is it because college is such a breeze for Sheldon Cooper? Young Sheldon season 6 continues Sheldon’s undergraduate adventures after he finished his second semester of college in Young Sheldon season 5

He’s a little older and a little wiser in season 6, but there’s still so much for Sheldon to learn as he enters his teenage years as the precocious child genius. 

Here’s everything we know about Young Sheldon season 6.

When is the Young Sheldon season 6 release date?

Young Sheldon season 6 premieres on Thursday, September 29. It will serve as the primetime leadoff for Ghosts, So Help Me Todd and CSI: Vegas

There is currently no release date for Young Sheldon season 6 in the UK, but we’ll be sure to provide an update as soon as one is available.  

Who is in the Young Sheldon season 6 cast?

As of this writing, the full cast is set to return for the sixth season. Since it’s a new year of school for Sheldon, we can expect to see some new faces in the upcoming season as he continues his college years. 

Jim Parsons returns to narrate the series, providing keen insight into what’s going on inside young Sheldon’s head.

Here are the rest of the cast members expected to return:

  • Iain Armitage as Sheldon 
  • Zoe Perry as Mary 
  • Lance Barber as George Sr. 
  • Annie Potts as Meemaw 
  • Montana Jordan as George 
  • Raegan Revord as Missy

What is Young Sheldon season 6 about?

Thus far, each season of Young Sheldon has followed Sheldon Cooper’s life chronologically, with Sheldon entering his second semester of college in season 5 at the tender age of 12. If the pattern continues then we should see Sheldon in his second year of college at age 13 in season 6. 

The show is approaching a very pivotal moment for Sheldon, as Big Bang Theory fans know that Sheldon’s father George dies when he’s 14. We’re still a year away from that happening, but knowing that it’s coming puts a whole new spin on how things play out in the final year of his life and how that could impact Sheldon’s development into a young man. 

Is there a trailer for Young Sheldon season 6?

A little teaser for the upcoming season of Young Sheldon is now available and it makes the wait for the new season that much harder!
