Younger is getting a little bit older. TV Land has renewed the comedy series, starring Sutton Foster and Hilary Duff, for a 12-episode second season. That’s a pretty big vote of confidence considering we’re only four episodes into the freshman season of which the premiere debuted to a low 504,000 viewers.
Younger follows 40-year old Liza (Sutton Foster), a suddenly single mother who tries to get back into the working world, only to find it’s nearly impossible to start at the bottom at her age. When a chance encounter with a young guy at a bar convinces her she looks younger than she is, Liza tries to pass herself off as 26 – with the help of a makeover, courtesy of her best friend Maggie (Debi Mazar). Armed with new confidence, she lands a job as an assistant to the temperamental Diana (Miriam Shor) and teams up with her new co-worker and 20-something Kelsey (Hilary Duff) to make it in the career of her dreams. Now she just has to make sure no one finds out the secret only she and Maggie share.
According to the press release, TV Land highlights that Younger has reached an audience of 20 million people across multiple networks and multiple platforms, including TV Land, Nick at Nite, Hulu, VOD and TVLand.com.
The season finale of Younger airs Tuesday, June 9 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
