Younger centers on a suddenly-single New Jersey housewife and mother in her early 40s who, unable to restart her career, decides to lie about her age and successfully passes herself off as a twenty-something. Armed with a makeover and new resume, she wins a coveted position at the city’s hottest publishing company. Pretending to be “younger” doesn’t hurt in the bar scene, either, as guys line up like never before.
TV Land announced today that Younger has been renewed for a fifth season. The good news comes two months ahead of the veteran dramedy's Season 4 premiere, which is scheduled for June 28. Deep into its run, the series continues to be a solid performer for the cable network.
Younger follows Liza, a 40-year-old single mother who pretends to be in her 20's after struggling to get back into the working world. Her lie helps her land a job at a publishing firm, but it also starts to complicate matters in her personal life.
TV Land has ordered another 12 new episodes for Season 5 of Younger, which is in-line with its first four seasons. Look for Season 5 in 2018.
