The Young Sheldon series will come to an end in the seventh and final season: in which episode does George die? Here is all you need to know.
It’s a hard blow for fans since the announcement, and yet we will have to get used to it: season 7 of Young Sheldon will also be the last. And this, even if there are still many intrigues to pursue and close.
The spin-off series has not failed to animate the community, which hastened to publish numerous theories on the Internet: from Mary cheating on George to a redemption arc for Missy after the Cooper family suffers the consequences of a violent tornado, all subjects are good to be discussed on social networks.

And where some wonder if it would be wise to show how the father of the family is torn from his family, especially after the trying finale of season 6, other fans insist. For them, this turnaround should not be given up on Young Sheldon: “No, I hope they have the guts and actually do it. We must remain faithful to the canon.” To which another user added: “He must die.
