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!
