Young Sheldon Season 7 teases Missy redemption arc

Young Sheldon Season 7 is only a few weeks away from heading to screens, with new images teasing a redemption arc for Missy Cooper.

While the show is largely focused on – and named after – her brother, Missy Cooper (Raegan Revord) has arguably flown under the radar in recent installments.

Known for being the polar opposite in personality of her brother, the end of Season 6 saw Missy apologizing to George in the face of an incoming tornado, alongside engaging in more typical teen behavior as she starts to play up.

However, Missy fans are in luck, as new images for Season 7 tease that Missy might be on track for a redemption arc in Young Sheldon.

In new images released ahead of Young Sheldon Season 7, Missy looks set to head on a redemption arc all her own.

As Season 7 picks up, the Cooper family is having to deal with the aftermath of the tornado – all except Sheldon (Iain Armitage) and Mary (Zoe Perry), who are settled over in Germany.

Back in Medford, the storm seems to have passed, prompting Missy to take on an entirely new role within the Cooper family.

The official synopsis for Season 7 Episode 1 reads “News of the tornado reaches Sheldon and Mary in Germany; with the Cooper house in chaos, Missy steps up.”

The new image shows Missy taking Mary’s seat at the dinner table, suggesting she’s ready to leave her tawdry tween behavior behind – and that her family is ready to take her more seriously.

For some fans, this kind of redemption arc has been on the cards for Missy for a while.

Over on Reddit, user OnlyOwl4100 wrote “Missy will have a redemption arc (if that’s what you call it) – since she was shown to be a troubled teenager who made wrong decisions in S6, after the events of the tornado, I think we’ll get to see a nicer and more empathetic side of Missy.”

Throughout Seasons 1-5, Missy was largely overlooked in favor of her brother Sheldon, taking matters back into her own hands in Season 6 by settling into a pattern of ‘bad’ behavior. Given that she is set to take the lead in the family navigating the destruction, Missy might just be able to prove that when it comes to handling serious situations, she’s the go-to girl.

“Young Sheldon is literally my comfort series right now and I don’t want to end it ‘coz I’m gonna miss the whole cast, esp u Missy,” one fan recently posted on X/Twitter ahead of Season 7’s release.

“Missy on Young Sheldon is funny as hell. Her comedic timing is great for her age,” added another.
