The seventh and final season of the hit comedy prequel "Young Sheldon" is well underway, and "The Big Bang Theory" fans have reason to believe that a bittersweet ending is in store for the popular spinoff. 

"Young Sheldon" season 7 airs on CBS and Paramount Plus in the U.S. and CTV in Canada on Thursdays — and viewers abroad can watch it from anywhere with a VPN.

Narrated by Jim Parsons, the sitcom follows pint-sized Sheldon's (Iain Armitage) attempts to navigate life as a boy genius in rural Texas in the late 80s and early 90s. Much like in 'TBBT', the show’s humor centers around Sheldon’s unique way of interacting with the world around him, and his struggles to fit in with his family.

"Young Sheldon" season 7 opened with Sheldon and Mary’s (Zoe Parry) trip to Germany for his summer program, and the major bind they found themselves in upon discovering that Meemaw’s (Annie Potts) house has been destroyed by a tornado. 

Mandy (Emily Osment) and Georgie (Montana Jordan) are taking up more prominent roles in preparation for a new spin-off series, though the impending death of George Sr. (Lance Barber), which scarred Sheldon at the age of 14, is looming ever larger.

How to watch 'Young Sheldon' season 7 in Canada

Fans in Canada can watch episodes of "Young Sheldon" season 7 even earlier. The show airs on CTV at 7:30 p.m. ET/PT every Thursday.

Can you watch 'Young Sheldon' season 7 in the UK?

"Young Sheldon" airs for free in the U.K. (with a TV license) on Channel 4 and its on-demand streaming service. However, fans likely have a wait in store for season 7.

That's because the previous season only made its way across the Atlantic in July, nine months after its premiere.

For now, anybody currently abroad in the U.K. from the U.S. or Canada can use one of the best VPN services to access their usual streaming service. We recommend ExpressVPN thanks to its speed, reliability and trusted security features. 

Can you watch 'Young Sheldon' season 7 in Australia?

It's a similiar situation in Australia, where "Young Sheldon" season 7 doesn't yet have a release date.

Previous seasons have streamed on Binge, though not for a long time after they've aired in the U.S. and Canada. Season 6, for instance, came out a year after it premiered.

For anyone traveling in those countries who wants to use the services they already pay for, check out ExpressVPN.
