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 picked up for a seventh season. The good news comes midway through Season 6 of the dramedy, ensuring that the cable network's sole original scripted series continues for at least another year. The renewal was somewhat expected, as ratings have continued to be solid.
The half-hour series stars Sutton Foster as 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.
Look for Season 7 of Younger in mid-2020.
