Freeform has handed a fifth-season renewal to Young & Hungry. Production on new episodes of the San Francisco-set comedy starring Emily Osment, Jonathan Sadowski, Aimee Carrero, Kym Whitley and Rex Lee will begin next week for a 2017 premiere.
Young & Hungry wrapped up its fourth season on August 3 with strong season-to-season gains in total viewers and adults 18-49, the cable net said.
“Young & Hungry was the No. 1 cable comedy among adults 18-34 during its most recent run and saw double-digit growth over the previous season in our key demographics,” said Karey Burke, Freeform’s EVP Programming & Development, who announced the pickup. “The series has been a powerhouse for us since launch.”
The series is produced by David Holden, Ashley Tisdale, Jessica Rhoades, Caryn Lucas, and Eric Tannenbaum and Kim Tannenbaum in association with CBS Television Studios.
