Despite low ratings, TV Land renewed Younger for a second season last year. This time around, the cable channel has renewed the comedy for a third season before the second even began airing. Will the numbers rise or drop lower? Should the series have been cancelled instead? Stay tuned.
On the Younger TV show, a recently single mother (Sutton Foster) tries to re-enter the working world but finds her age to be a problem. After being mistaken for a younger woman, she decides to pass herself off as a 26 year old and lands a job as the assistant of a publishing executive (Miriam Shor). The cast also includes Nico Tortorella, Debi Mazar, Peter Hermann, Molly Bernard, and Hilary Duff.
