‘Younger’ is an American comedy–drama TV series that airs on TV Land. The series first premiered on March 31, 2015. It is based on a novel of the same name by Pamela Redmond Satran. The single-camera series is backed by Jax Media and Darren Star Productions as the production companies and has Darren Star, Larry W. Jones, Keith Cox, and Tony Hernandez as the executive producers. ‘Younger’ has been taken from the novel and made for television by Darren Star as well. Fans might be interested to know that the show was supposed to move to Paramount Network for the upcoming season, but it remains on TV Land, making it the only scripted show on the network.
The show follows a woman who has been mistaken for younger than she really is, and the single mother decides to reboot her life, love, and career as a 26-year-old. It has garnered a positive response from fans and developed a steady following. Critics too lauded the show, with Vulture praising characters “There’s a sweetness to the series, an almost admiration for the various crummy behaviors.”
The popularity of the series has led to the expansion of its multi-platform franchise over the years, which includes an after-show titled ‘Getting Younger’, a podcast called the ‘Younger Uncovered’, and ‘Marriage Vacation’, a novel that has been published by Simon & Schuster. The show itself has seen a total of five seasons so far. Here’s everything we know about the next season.
Younger Cast: Who’s in it?
The main cast of ‘Younger’ includes Sutton Foster as Liza Miller, the show’s protagonist. Other cast members include Debi Mazar as Maggie Amato, Miriam Shore as Diana Trout, Nico Tortorella as Josh, Hilary Duff as Kelsey Peters, Molly Bernard as Lauren Heller, Peter Hermann in the role of Charles Brooks, and Charles Michael Davis as Zane Anders. These characters are bolstered by the presence of a strong supporting cast.
In the upcoming season, the main cast is expected to stage a return and probably new characters will be thrown into the mix, who will make Liza’s life more interesting as she tries her do-over. Some new members who we know will be joining the cast, are Nicole Ari Parker of ‘Empire‘ who will play Maggie Amato’s love interest. The guest stars coming this season are novelists Michael Cunningham, Meg Wolitzer and actors Becky Ann Baker of ‘Girls’, Beth Leavel, and Willa Fitzgerald of ‘Dare Me’.
