While Young & Hungry was originally given a season orders of 10 episodes, eventually, Freeform doubled the total order to 20. A couple of weeks before that, the cable channel decided not to move forward with the proposed spinoff. Were the two decisions related? Although the fourth season ratings saw a small increase over the previous year, will the sitcom continue to build its audience? The ratings are way down but Freeform has cancelled Baby Daddy so, that may mean the network will want to keep this show around for a sixth season. We’ll see.
