Young Sheldon might be one of the most popular sitcoms in the U.S., but is it streaming? Here’s what you need to know about how to watch it.

The Big Bang Theory spinoff Young Sheldon quickly racked up huge ratings during its first season, which came as a surprise to many of its fans.

The prequel follows Sheldon Cooper, a bona fide genius, who has been promoted four grades. Meanwhile, he struggles to fit in with his unintellectual family in Texas.

With the show drawing to a close on May 16, here’s everything you need to know about how to watch Young Sheldon and whether it’s streaming.

How to watch Young Sheldon on streaming

The first six seasons of Young Sheldon are currently available to stream on Max and Netflix.

Having originally been available only on Max, the prequel joined Netflix back in November with its first 5 seasons, adding Season 6 in early 2024.

According to Deadline, Max landed the exclusive streaming rights in 2020 for both Young Sheldon and The Big Bang Theory. Now, Netflix and Max are set to share these rights, with the Warner Bros-owned platform Max keeping the main licenses for everything, including another upcoming spin-off.

It was recently announced that Season 7 of Young Sheldon, set to air in 2024, would be the show’s last. Given that Netflix would need to stream Season 6 first before any new episodes, it’s more likely that Season 7 will be available to watch on Max first.

Regardless, there is still no date for when Young Sheldon Season 7 will be on either platform. It’s currently airing weekly on CBS, being available on Paramount Plus the day after.

Young Sheldon is also available to stream on Netflix in a number of international territories, including the UK.
