Comedy series Young Sheldon is coming to an end.
Deadline reported that the show will conclude with the upcoming seventh season with 14 episodes. Young Sheldon will air a one-hour series finale on May 16.
"As a prequel to one of the biggest comedies (The Big Bang Theory), Young Sheldon proved lightning can strike twice," Amy Reisenbach, president of CBS Entertainment, said in a statement. "It set itself apart with a remarkable cast that felt like a family from the first moment we saw them on screen and brought characters to life with unique heartfelt stories that drew audiences in from the start."
The upcoming installment is set to premiere on Feb. 15.
The finale of Young Sheldon brings the journey of the Sheldon Cooper (played by Iain Armitage) character to an end after 14 years across two series. The single-camera comedy takes viewers through his childhood as he gradually becomes the person fans got to know and love on the multi-camera The Big Bang Theory, where Jim Parsons played the adult Sheldon, according to Deadline.
The series also stars Zoe Perry, Lance Barber, Annie Potts, Montana Jordan, Raegan Revord, and Parsons (the voice of Sheldon). Lorre, Molaro, Holland, Nick Bakay, Parsons, and Todd Spiewak serve as executive producers. Young Sheldon is produced by Chuck Lorre Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.
"Being able to tell the origin of Sheldon Cooper, and expanding the story to include the entire Cooper family has been a wonderful experience," executive producers Holland, Molaro, and Lorre said in a joint statement.
"We are grateful to our fans for embracing this chapter of the Coopers these past six seasons, and on behalf of the entire Young Sheldon family, we're excited to share this final season with you," they added. (ANI)
