Tv Season Info

The comedy series is based on the novel of the same name written by Pamela Redmond Satran and follows the life of Liza Miller (Sutton Foster), a 40-year-old mother of a teenage daughter struggling to make ends meet. Season 1 opens with her daughter Caitlin (Tessa Albertson) studying in India, while Liza is forced to find a way to support them both after her ex-husband squanders all their money gambling. As she tries to follow her dreams and find a job in publishing, she ends up pretending to be 26 years old and gets a job as an assistant to the head of marketing of a publishing company; there she becomes good friends with one of her co-workers, 20-something Kelsey Peters (Hilary Duff).

Critic Reviews for Younger Season 1

All Critics (37) | Top Critics (22)

Foster is so likable, she makes us care about Liza more than we would have expected.

Apr 2, 2015 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Any success that Younger achieves is thanks to [Sutton] Foster-who, at 40, and despite the absurd situations she's placed in-is somehow more convincing at playing a twentysomething than the 27-year-old Hilary Duff.

Younger, with its fizzy sensibility and sexual frankness, is a not-so-veiled attempt to lure younger audiences to the network, but there's a caginess to the humor.

Apr 2, 2015 | Rating: B | Full Review…

Once the viewer moves past whether or not a rather winsome Foster, who is 40 in real life, could pass for someone 14 years younger - she can, by the way - the real enjoyment is in watching what she learns about herself and others along the way.

It has the interesting quality of actually being about something that not many shows are about: the push-pull of aging as a tough thing in some moments and a really fortunate, glorious thing in others

The show's crisp, witty dialogue is mostly egalitarian among the ages, and everyone's great at working the words.

t's a concept that shouldn't work at all, but somehow, Foster and the rest of the cast - including Hilary Duff and Debi Mazar - elevate Younger into something both silly and special...

A really excellent freshman season, in which every episode passed the Bechdel test.

Jun 26, 2018 | Full Review…

Adorable comedy has sex jokes, drinking, stealth feminism.

Apr 1, 2015 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The bright, sparkly Younger zips right along, getting laughs from star Sutton Foster as a 40-year-old trying to pass as 26 to snag a job at a publishing company.
