Young Sheldon season 5 began on Thursday, October 7, at 8 PM EST (5 PM PST) with new episodes airing weekly. The fifth season of this The Big Bang Theory prequel will pick up from where season 4 left off as George considers his future. If you’re traveling abroad, you may find that Young Sheldon season 5 is region-locked. In this post, we’ll explain how you can use a VPN to unblock and watch it online from anywhere.

We’re only recommending official sources for watching Young Sheldon season 5. Unauthorized streams may be taken offline for copyright violation, making them highly unreliable. Furthermore, many unlicensed streams are low resolution and may suffer from excessive buffering and lag. The good news is that we’ll cover the official sources for streaming Young Sheldon season 5 so you don’t need to worry about missing out.

Young Sheldon season 5 will only be shown on region-locked platforms. For this reason, a VPN is required to watch abroad via your regular home streaming services.

How to watch Young Sheldon season 5 online with a VPN

In connecting to a VPN server, you receive a different IP address. This is what most geo-blocked sites use to find your location, so by changing it, you can make it look as if you’re browsing from another country. This in turn allows you to access websites that would otherwise be unavailable where you are.

Here’s how to watch Young Sheldon season 5 online from anywhere:

  1. First of all, you’ll need to sign up with a VPN. We recommend NordVPN although Surfshark and ExpressVPN are great options too.
  2. The next step is to download the appropriate VPN app for your device. Note that the above VPNs also offer the option of browser extensions.
  3. Open the VPN app before connecting to a server in the United States. This ensures you get a US IP address so you can unblock CBS All Access while traveling abroad.
  4. Go to Paramount+ and sign up for an account if you don’t have one already. This requires some personal data including a US zip code (any US zip code will do).
  5. Still blocked? You should clear your browser’s cache and cookies. Alternatively, try connecting to another server in case your current IP address has been blacklisted.

Young Sheldon season 5 will broadcast live on CBS. That’s why we recommend you test your VPN with CBS in advance. If you encounter any issues, you’ll have enough time to get in touch with your VPN’s customer support for further assistance.
