Younger Season 7 came to a close this June on Paramount+ and Hulu, with the season finale of the former TV Land show also acting as a series finale. In August 2020, it was announced that the Hilary Duff show would end after its seventh season—though at the time it was teased that the show would get a spinoff based on Duff's character Kelsey.© TV Land 'Younger' is ending after seven seasons.
Why Younger Season 7 is the final season
Creator Darren Star has been talking about ending Younger at least since promoting his new show, Netflix's Emily in Paris. Talking to TV Line during that show's promotional campaign, he said "we are unofficially planning [Season 7] as a final season." He also said to The Hollywood Reporter (THR), "it's time to end the series."
Multiple factors seem to be at play behind the show ending. Star is moving on to Season 2 of Emily in Paris, lead actor Sutton Foster is working on the Netflix animated series Ridley Jones, while Duff is moving on to Hulu comedy How I Met Your Father. Seven seasons is also a standard length for TV contracts, so the makers of the show may have decided to bring the show to a close rather than renegotiate with the whole cast.
The show was also the last original series made by TV Land. The show moved to Paramount+ for its final season.
Will there be a Younger spinoff?
Though a Kelsey spinoff was teased, as of June 2021 it seems not to be going ahead.
This was confirmed by Star in a THR article, when he said: "We're not pursuing it now. I think she's [Duff] off doing something else and regardless of a spinoff or not, this was always our ending for Kelsey. It wasn't driven by the idea of a spinoff. If the timing is right at some point in the future, but at the moment it's not something that we're pursuing."
Asked about the spinoff by TV Line, he added: "I think that's pretty much off the table. [Kelsey moving to California] could have set up the spinoff, sure, but that's also just the way we wanted this to end. We resolved her story regardless of any notion of a spinoff."
As for a Deadwood-style movie spinoff, Star said to THR: "I feel like it's still a little too fresh to think about, but I think it would be something fun for all of us to revisit in the future if there was the opportunity. We loved working together... I think a movie could be a really fun special treat for all of us."
