Fans react to Young Sheldon hitting Netflix

The first five seasons of Young Sheldon are set to hit Netflix US from November 24, according to Deadline

The news arrives shortly after the streaming service started running promos in America promising that the show is “coming soon.”

Although this would be a great opportunity to binge-watch all of the classics ahead of Young Sheldon’s final chapter, reaction to the announcement has been mixed. 

“Acting like nothing happened,” said one on X/Twitter, while another wrote: “This is the stuff they put on the service after raising prices.” A third added: “I guess it’s actually time to cancel.”

As well as slamming Netflix, some have targeted the show itself, including this person who said: “Yet another spinoff that nobody asked for. I’ve seen some episodes and thought it was bland.”

But not everyone agrees, with plenty of people expressing their excitement at being able to rewatch Seasons 1-5. 

“Will be rewatching this for sure,” commented one, with a second pointing out: “Since the series is also ending, it’s a good time to start binge watching.”
