TV Insider Coverage of Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour 2016TV Land is getting more Younger.

The comedy, from creator and executive producer Darren Star (Melrose Place, Beverly Hills 90210), has been renewed for a 12-episode third season to debut later this fall. Executive Vice President of TV Land's Development and Original Programming Keith Cox made the announcement Wednesday at the Television Critics Association Press Tour.

"Younger was a critical success and fan favorite right out of the gate, and Darren Star and his team of writers have brought an even sexier, shocking sophomore season to the table," said Cox. "We're thrilled with the show and what it’s done for the network, and we're so confident in our viewers' passion for it. We're excited for our audience to see season two and beyond."

The renewal comes just days before the show, starring Sutton Foster as a 40-year-old woman who lies about her age to get a job in the publishing industry, begins its second season on January 13. Season 2 guest stars include Glee's Matthew Morrison as a reclusive author who lives on a farm, The Practice's Camryn Manheim as a psychologist pitching a life guidebook to people in their 20s, and returning guest stars Kathy Najimy, Josh Pais and Martha Plimpton.

Younger returns Wednesday, January 13 at 10/9c on TV Land.
