CBS’s biggest fall debut (other than Stark Trek) show kick-started on CBS last week to high praise and as a result, has been ordered for a full 22-episode first season which will continue on November 2nd, 2017. Will Young Sheldon be coming to Hulu? We’ll look at the possibility of that below.
In case you’re not familiar with Young Sheldon, let’s bring you up to speed. The spin-off series is from CBS’s biggest current sitcom, The Big Bang Theory. Jim Parsons who plays Sheldon Cooper in The Big Bang Theory essentially narrates his childhood in Young Sheldon. Sheldon is a young genius who’s way beyond his years and attends a high school in East Texas at the age of nine.
The series had a special premiere episode that followed The Big Bang Theory and ratings and reviews were so good that they ordered a full season. It will be airing on Thursdays straight after The Big Bang Theory.
Now for long-term Hulu members, you’ll know that The Big Bang Theory isn’t any longer streaming on Hulu. The reason behind this is quite simple, CBS values this property enough as a main driver for the recently released CBS All Access platform. This year, they’re keeping Young Sheldon and Star Trek: Discovery away from all streaming providers to hopefully get people subscribing to their standalone service.
Young Sheldon is currently available on CBS All Access and won’t be coming to Hulu for this reason. New episodes will be available on CBS All Access shortly after it airs on the main live channel. On the bright side, if you have Hulu Live, CBS is an available channel there where you can DVR it or watch Young Sheldon live.
