'Young & Hungry' Renewed for Season 4 at Freeform
Freeform is going back for fourths.
The cabler has renewed Young & Hungry for a fourth season, it was announced Monday.
The comedy, starring Emily Osment and Jonathan Sadowski, is currently in the midst of its third season. Production begins Monday on the new season, but a premiere date has not yet been announced. The series, which also stars Kym Whitley, Rex Lee and Aimee Carrero, centers on an entrepreneur and his personal chef.
The series is exec produced by David Holden, Ashley Tisdale, Jessica Rhoades, Caryn Lucas, and Eric Tannenbaum and Kim Tannenbaum in association with CBS Television Studios.
"Young & Hungry is the first series we’ve renewed under the new Freeform banner. It remains a staple in our comedy diet. The show’s humor, quality and wonderful actors fit perfectly with our evolving brand,” Freeform evp programming & development Karey Burke said.
The renewal comes days after the network canceled rookie comedy Kevin From Work — a rare miss for the Disney-owned channel that changed its name in January as part of a bigger creative overhaul to move the focus from family to young adults and "becomers."
Young & Hungry joins returning comedies Baby Daddy as well as other veteran series including Pretty Little Liars, Switched at Birth and The Fosters, and well as newer series Stitchers, Recovery Road and Shadowhunters.
