Word is out that Young & Hungry has been renewed by Freeform for a fifth season. The good news was announced via a Twitter post by star Emily Osment, writing the following message to the show's fans:
Going back to work for season 5 of Young & Hungry in one week. No one has announced it yet so I am! You're welcome!— Emily Osment (@EmilyOsment) October 24, 2016
The veteran comedy wrapped its fourth season back in August, during which it reached the 50-episode mark while continuing to rank as one of cable's top original scripted series in its time period among key demographics.
A return date for Season 5 is not yet known, though with production starting soon the wait shouldn't be too long. Seeing as how the show managed to air two full seasons in 2016, Season 5 will likely premiere in early 2017.
