“Younger,” a show that follows a 40-year-old woman (Sutton Foster) that lies about her age to break into the competitive world of publishing, is TV Land’s longest running original series of all time.
While seasons 4, 5, and 6 of the show were each released in June, the seventh season of “Younger” was postponed before the cast began shooting due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“The latest date I’ve heard was March 2021 to start shooting again, so at least we have a date, and they’re still planning on it,” Duff said, adding, “I miss my ‘Younger’ family for sure.”
Because the show is filmed in New York City, Duff said that she’s spent four months there for the past six years to shoot “Younger.” This year marks the first time she’s in California full time.
“I am just devastated. I miss New York so much right now,” she said. “I’m just really craving the city.”
As for what’s in store for fans on the upcoming season of “Younger,” Duff said that even the cast isn’t sure.
“Darren [Star], who is our show creator, is super tight-lipped about everything. So now that they have all this time to write, I’m not even sure,” she said, continuing to explain that the writing team typically works on several episodes at a time instead of building out the entire season at once.
“Younger” isn’t Duff’s only project that’s been delayed.
The actress is set to star in the “Lizzie McGuire” reboot on Disney Plus, which was delayed in January after original creator Terri Minsky stepped away from the project. The updated release date hasn’t been confirmed, though Duff told Insider that she’s “hopeful” about her collaboration with Disney after previous creative differences.
Original cast members – including Adam Lamberg, Hallie Todd, Robert Carradine and Jake Thomas – will join Duff on the reboot.
The actress is currently promoting Creative Roots, an all-natural kids beverage that she’s used to keep her children hydrated this summer. The drinks come in four flavors: Watermelon Lemonade, Peach Mango, Orange Pineapple and Mixed Berry.
“My kids are powering through them,” Duff said. “I feel better about giving them something I know is hydrating them.”
