The ‘Younger’ Season 6 Premiere Date Has Been Announced
Though TV doesn’t move in the same strict school-year cyclical patterns that it used to, spring has always been a popular time for sharing news about series renewals and premiere dates. That is certainly the case for Younger, the TV Land hit which has thus far aired five seasons. Here’s what you need to know about the Darren Star-produced series, including when the first episode of Season 6 will air.
What is Younger about?
If you haven’t watched yet, here’s what you need to know: Younger, which was created by Sex and the City showrunner Star, is about a 40-year-old NYC woman who lies about her age to get a job in publishing, after taking years off to raise her daughter. The show stars Sutton Foster as Liza Miller, who finds out that, to get back into the industry she once thrived in, she had to start from the bottom, so she pretends to be a Millennial to get an assistant job. How will she keep her secret?
Season 6 was greenlit last year
The series has evolved quite a bit over time, with a continued focus on Liza and the world of publishing, but branching out to document her and her coworkers’ relationships, as well as those of their friends, roommates, etc. Younger was renewed for a sixth season just before the fifth began airing in June 2018.
With each season consisting of 12 episodes, the show, which began airing in 2015, has become a big hit for TV Land. It was previously announced that Younger would be moving to Paramount Network, which is also owned by Viacom, but this decision was reversed.
The premiere date announcement
On April 9, 2019, a video was released announcing the Season 6 premiere date: June 12, 2019. This is fitting, as the last two seasons of the series also began airing in June. Like those before it, the season will consist of 12 episodes.
The video features the stars of the show, including Foster, Hilary Duff, Miriam Shor, and the rest of the main cast opening up an envelope revealing the date. And they’re preparing us for what is likely to be an exciting season.
What will happen on Younger Season 6?
The big question is: What will happen next on Younger? While Liza and Charles (Peter Hermann) thought they finally had things all figured out and could be together, there’s no way that will go perfectly. Kelsey (Duff) has a new job to worry about, and Diana (Shor) is embracing a new side of herself. And then there’s Josh (Nico Tortorella), who just found out that he’s about to become a dad.
Here’s where you can watch the show
Good news! Right now, you can watch all of the first five seasons on Hulu. While this is good for those who need to catch up (or just want to rewatch), the bad news is that when Season 6 begins airing, the episodes will only be available on the TV Land website the day after airing. These are accessible with a cable provider login, so if you want to watch week-to-week, you’ll need one of those.
