It’s the end of the road for Young & Hungry. The Freeform comedy series – which airs on this side of the pond on E4 – is set to end its run with its (current) fifth season, the U.S. cable network announced on Thursday.
The cancellation comes several months after production wrapped on the back half of season five, which premieres state-side this June. As a result of that, Freeform has put into development a Young & Hungry TV movie that will presumably tie up storylines from the series proper.
Young & Hungry is the last of the original series from the ABC Family days to have its fate decided by Freeform execs. The Fosters, which also began its life under the network’s former aegis as ABC Family, comes to a close this Summer with a three-part event. Freeform has a strong roster of originals commissioned under the new brand identity, including: Grown-ish, Alone Together, Shadowhunters, Famous In Love and Beyond.
Young & Hungry is a comedy series where two worlds collide when Josh, a wealthy young entrepreneur, hires feisty blogger Gabi to be his personal chef. The series is produced by CBS Television Studios & Freeform Original Productions and stars Emily Osment, Jonathan Sadowski, Aimee Carrero, Kym Whitley and Rex Lee. The executive producers are David Holden, Caryn Lucas, Ashley Tisdale, Jessica Rhoades and Eric and Kim Tannenbaum
