While Young & Hungry was originally given a season orders of 10 episodes, back in January, 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 ratings saw a small increase last season, will the sitcom be able to build on its growth? Will Young & Hungry be cancelled or renewed for season six? Stay tuned.
Young & Hungry stars Emily Osment, Jonathan Sadowski, Aimee Carrero, Kym Whitley, and Rex Lee, with Bryan Safi recurring. The Freeform TV series features food blogger, Gabi Diamond (Osment), who becomes the personal chef of wealthy tech entrepreneur Josh Xander Kaminski (Sadowski). After they develop feelings for one another, the plot thickens. The fifth season kicks off with Gabi and Josh trying to prove to everyone that they won’t let feelings get in the way of their new arrangement as “friends with benefits.” **Update below.
