Last time we saw Meemaw (Annie Pott) and Georgie (Montana Jordan), they were in the slammer after trying to buy cheap cigs in Mexico. While this was a bit of a laugh at first, the ripple effects are real. 

George has to go down below the border to bail them out, and that's spending money the family has no need to lose. Times are tough for the family, and who knows where George is getting this cash from. Meanwhile, Georgie has a new child coming into this world soon, and Mandy (Emily Osment) will not be at all happy with this added headache. 

As for Sheldon (Iain Armitage)? We know he'll be spending more time this season at school (possibly making more friends?) and that in this first episode, he and Missy (Raegan Revord) meet and Missy (Emily Osment). Later this season, Sheldon and Missy will try and help the family's funds situation.

Here is everything you need to watch Young Sheldon season 6. Plus, watch a trailer below:
