TV Land’s critically-acclaimed, fan-favorite comedy series “Younger,” from “Sex and the City” creator Darren Star, has been renewed for a 12-episode fourth season. The news comes on the heels of the series beginning production on its third season this week in New York. Season three of “Younger” will premiere on Wednesday, September 28th at 10pm ET/PT, followed by the season two premiere of “Impastor,” which was originally scheduled for this summer.
“Younger” continued to grow its audience through both its first and the second seasons, with season two finishing with double-digit gains among all key demographics versus the series’ season one average. In addition, social media numbers continued to climb, tripling the series’ followers on Instagram, doubling its following on Twitter and seeing a +40% increase in Facebook fans. VOD orders also tripled from the premiere episode to the finale episode of season two. TV Land is banking on this number growing as seasons one and two are now available for binge-watching on TV Land On Demand, and also the TV Land app.
“The show is a force in and of itself, so it’s a no-brainer to renew it again,” said Cox. “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.”
The story follows Liza (Sutton Foster), 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. Working under the prickly Diana (Miriam Shor), Liza has to figure out how to balance her real life with best friend Maggie (Debi Mazar), and her “pretend” life with her new crew – friend/coworker Kelsey (Hilary Duff) and fashion publicist Lauren (Molly Bernard). At the end of season two, Liza’s secret took a tragic turn when Kelsey’s fiancé Thad (Dan Amboyer) was killed in an accident right after he discovered her lie, and Liza’s love life is in disarray as she tries to choose between on-again/off-again boyfriend Josh (Nico Tortorella) and her boss Charles (Peter Hermann), with whom she has an undeniable connection.
“Younger” is created, executive produced and written by Darren Star, with Tony Hernandez of JAX Media executive producing for TV Land. Dottie Zicklin and Eric Zicklin also serve as executive producers and writers on the series.
