Younger Will Get Another Season Older

Because it's been renewed

Just how long can a 40-something woman pretend that she's 20-something? For at least six seasons, apparently!

TV Land has renewed Sutton Foster's Younger for another season. The news was announced at the series' Season 5 premiere party in Brooklyn, New York on Monday night. Season 5 officially premieres for everyone on Tuesday, June 5.

The comedy's official Twitter account confirmed the news:

The decision to keep Younger going was a pretty easy one. Season 4 was the show's most-watched season yet, with big gains over Season 3's numbers. It's also TV Land's highest-rated original by far -- partly because it's one of two originals left on TV Land. (The other is Teachers.)

Younger stars Foster -- Bunheads, baby! -- as a Liza, woman in her 40s who tries to go back to work but finds that jobs are all going to 20-something-year olds. To get a job in the publishing industry, she pretends to be 26 and there's your comedy premise. Season 5 of the comedy will explore the long-neglected other side of Liza's series-long love triangle as she and her boss Charles (Peter Hermann) try to figure out the romantic aspect of their relationship.

Younger returns for Season 5 on Tuesday, June 5 at 10/9c on TV Land.
