The end of the road. Younger prepares to return for season seven – and sadly, it will serve as the final arc of the critically acclaimed dramedy.
ViacomCBS announced the end of Younger in February 2021
Younger, based on the 2005 novel of the same name by author Pamela Redmond Satran, has received high praise since it premiered in TV Land in March 2015.
The series – created by Darren Star, the man behind Beverly Hills, 90210, and Sex and the City – follows 40-year-old Liza Miller (Sutton Foster), who struggles to get back on the job and ends up lying about her age to get a job at Empirical Press.

Hilary Duff (Kelsey Peters), Nico Tortorella (Josh Mason), Peter Hermann (Charles Brooks), Debi Mazar (Maggie Amato), Miriam Shor (Diana Trout), Molly Bernard (Lauren Heller), and Charles Michael Davis (Zane Anders) star in the series. “It was really one of the best jobs I’ve ever had and that’s because of the people I can work with,” Foster told StyleCaster in October 2020.
“It really is a special group of people.”
“Our fans have been so loyal and passionate that it’s really exciting to finally unveil what to expect from these characters they’ve always chosen,” said Foster when speaking alongside the first teaser clip of the Season introduced the show’s creators.
“We bring all the emotion, all the laughter, and all the drama that defined Younger and made it the success it is.” For his part, Star added, “We look forward to taking fans on one final roller coaster ride this season.”

Although Younger is coming to an end, Tortorella spoke to Digital Spy in September 2020 about the possibility of the show continuing after it ends.
“I just feel like television, in general, is evolving in ways we don’t even fully understand. So who knows what’s going to happen in the future? I don’t think Younger’s universe is dead, but it may is it that specific act, “they said at the time.” And there is nothing I would rather do than continue with this series. It was a job that put me on the map. It’s been my family for so long. And I would like to carry on as I can. ”
The gang is all back
When the official announcement of the seventh season was posted on Instagram in July 2019, it was revealed that the entire cast will be returning to repeat their roles.
Start of production
Although filming and release were initially delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic, the cast returned to New York in October 2020.
It’s a new home
During ViacomCBS’s investor presentation in February 2021, it was confirmed that Season 7 will be the show’s final appearance. Last hurray.
In February 2021, it was announced that Younger would be airing on ViacomCBS’s upcoming Paramount + streaming service before reaching the original network TV Land. “With Younger, Darren Star did it again, creating a multigenerational series that has captured millions of fans who yearn for more,” said Chris McCarthy, president of MTV Entertainment Group, in a statement according to The Hollywood Reporter. “And we’re excited to pay that off with Paramount + last season.”
The first six seasons of the show can also be streamed on the service, which launches on March 4, 2021. A premium plan is $ 9.99 per month while the general version is $ 4.99.
It is currently uncertain when fans can expect to see Liza’s adventures again.
The popular series will close its seventh and final season with 12 episodes.
A first look
Paramount + took a quick look at the final season in February 2021. The clip gives fans hints of some of the possible storylines being explored, including the love triangle between Liza, Charles, and Josh. “Accept the past, embrace the present and keep moving forward,” Liza says in the teaser.
