Following the announcement that Younger had been renewed for a seventh season, the show was poised to be TV Land's oldest and longest-running original series. But, creator Darren Star has told TVLine that his Sutton Foster and Hilary Duff-starring series will 'unofficially' end after its next season.
After a show hits five or more seasons, the conversation inevitably starts to shift to talk of when it will end and there were fears that season six would be Younger's last. As much as fans would love their favourite series to go on forever, there’s nothing worse than a show sticking around past its expiration date and inescapably going stale.
However fans and network execs feel there is at least one more season left in the show and thankfully creator Darren Star agreed, “As long as we have this really wonderful cast and we still have stories to tell, I definitely feel like we have another season ahead of us.”
The show stars Sutton Foster as Liza Miller, an editor navigating the competitive world of publishing, while also juggling personal relationships with her friend and boss Kelsey (Hilary Duff), friend and roommate Maggie (Debi Mazar), ex-boss and mentor Diana (Miriam Shor), ex-boss and love interest Charles (Peter Hermann), and ex-boyfriend Josh (Nico Tortorella). Molly Bernard and Charles Michael Davis also star.
While fans of Younger might have to farewell its TV favourites, author of the original book that inspired the mega-series Pamela Redmond has since released its sequel, Older, which picks up five years on from the series ending.
As Redmond tells marie claire, the book details Liza, nearing her 50th birthday, after she's written a book about impersonating a millennial to land a New York publishing job. Her former colleague, Kelsey, now a TV producer, bids Liza to Los Angeles, where her book is being made into a TV series.
