‘Younger’ renewed for sixth season by TV Land

Sutton Foster will keep up her millennial ruse and her romantic adventures for another year on “Younger.” TV Land has renewed the comedy series for a sixth season.

The pickup comes one day before “Younger” opens its fifth season on the Viacom cabler. “Younger” has become a buzzy fan-favorite for TV Land, spurring a weekly pre-show program on Facebook (“Getting Younger”), a recap podcast (“Younger Uncovered”), and a book “Marriage Vacation,” recently published by Simon & Schuster.
