Confirmed: Hilary Duff Starring In ‘Younger’ Spin-Off

The rumours were true! “Younger” star Hilary Duff will indeed be going solo in her own spin-off of the hit comedy.

“Younger” creator Darren Star, in the midst of promoting his new Netflix rom-com “Emily in Paris”, confirmed earlier reports that first emerged back in May.

“It’s just something we’ve been thinking about,” says Star in a video interview with Associated Press. “I love Hilary Duff, and I think it’s gonna be something that [will] possibly be a whole different show than ‘Younger’ but sort of it would be her character.”

 

Back in May 2020,  The Hollywood Reporter cited sources claiming that a Duff-led “Younger” spin-off was being developed by Star, creator of “Younger”.

“Younger” follows the exploits of a 40-something woman (Sutton Foster) who pretends to be in her 20s in order to get a job by posing as an up-and-comer, with Duff playing her millennial boss.

According to THR’s initial report, the spin-off would focus on Duff’s character, Kelsey Peters.

While a network hasn’t yet been determined (“Younger” airs on TV Land in the U.S.), sources indicate the Paramount Network is a likely choice.

At the time, representatives for ViacomCBS and Netflix declined THR‘s request for comment.
