In what is a big sign of confidence from the network, TV Land has handed out an early fourth season renewal to their hit single camera comedy series Younger. 12 episodes have been ordered for the show’s fourth season, which is eyed for a 2017 premiere.
“The show is a force in and of itself, so it’s a no-brainer to renew it again”, said Keith Cox, Executive Vice President of Development and Original Programming for TV Land. “Critics and fans love it, and I know Darren and the entire cast and crew behind ‘Younger’ will continue to deliver at the top of their game.”
This early renewal comes just as production is getting underway in New York on the show’s third season, which is set to premiere on Wednesday September 28th at 10/9c, where it will be paired with the second season of Impastor. Younger has long enjoyed strong support at the network, thanks in no small part to the fact that it hlped kick-start TV Land’s push into single-camera comedy following years of multi-camera efforts such as Hot In Cleveland and The Exes.
Created by Darren Starr, Younger follows Liza, a 40-year old woman who pretends to be 26 in order to get a job in the highly competitive world of publishing – and succeeds. Now working under the prickly Diana, Liza has to figure out how to balance her real life with best friend Maggie, and her “pretend” life with her new crew – friend/coworker Kelsey and fashion publicist Lauren. The comedy series stars Sutton Foster (Bunheads), Hilary Duff (Lizzie McGuire), Debi Mazar (Entourage), Miriam Shor (GCB) and Nico Tortorella (The Following).
