TV Land and Comedy Central have each renewed one of their shows for another season. For TV Land, Younger, starring Sutton Foster, Hilary Duff, Debi Mazar, Miriam Shor and Nico Tortorella, has received a renewal for a 12-episode second season.
“Younger is the first step in TV Land’s evolution, and we are proud to announce a second season,” Keith Cox, Executive Vice President of Development and Original Programming for TV Land said. “We’re thrilled to continue working with [executive producer] Darren [Star], and really eager to see where he takes this story and our amazing cast next.”
The series, about a 40-year-old woman named Liza who tries to pull off being 26 to land a job in publishing, had only 504,000 viewers tuning in to the premiere in March, though TV Land notes that the show has been viewed by 20 million people when you factor in other platforms like Hulu and VOD.
Younger airs Tuesdays at 10pm on TV Land, with the season 1 finale airing on June 9.

Over on Comedy Central, fans are obviously sad to hear that Jon Stewart will be leaving The Daily Show on August 6, but one of the network’s other big shows has just been renewed. Inside Amy Schumer, which premieres its third season on April 21, has already been picked up for season 4. Amy Schumer, the star of the sketch-comedy series, made the announcement on the Late Show with David Letterman.
Schumer said in a press release, “I’m so happy to keep the Inside Amy Schumer family together. Excited and scared for everyone to see what we do next.”
Comedian Amy Schumer is a true rising star in the world of comedy. She came in fourth place on Last Comic Standing season 5, has appeared in various other shows including some Comedy Central Roasts, and ended up with huge ratings when Inside Amy Schumer made its debut.
Schumer is having a big 2015 so far. She recently hosted the MTV Movie Awards, received the Peabody Award for Inside Amy Schumer, made TIME magazine’s list of the 100 Most Influential People and is gearing up for the release of her first movie Trainwreck, directed by Judd Apatow.
Inside Amy Schumer airs Tuesdays at 10:30pm on Comedy Central.
