Emily Osment Reveals the ‘Young & Hungry’ Movie Is No Longer Happening
In the current “Save Our Show” environment, fans of Young & Hungry were hopeful for a true conclusion to the Freeform series.
That was the initial plan after the show was canceled in March after five seasons, with buzz swirling that a wrap-up movie would take place. Sadly, this week, the series’ lead actress Emily Osment squashed those hopes.
“It breaks my heart to tell you that in addition to @FreeformTV not giving our Young & Hungry audience the ending our show deserved, they have ALSO decided to not go forward with a full-length film. From me and my obvious future tv hubby @sadowski23 we love you and we’re sorry,” she wrote.

Young & Hungry premiered in June 2014 and aired its final 10 episodes in June 2018, after over a year hiatus. The season finale, now the impromptu series finale, ended with Gabi (Emily Osment) proposing to Josh (Jonathan Sadowski). She asked him to move with her to Seattle, so they could be together while she pursued her dream of working with Alex Guarnaschelli from Iron Chef.
Also leaving Freeform is Shadowhunters, after it was canceled in June. But the popular fantasy series will be getting a two-episode finale, set to air in 2019. And most recently, Timeless received the wrap-up movie treatment by NBC with its special TV event airing this December.
Fans took to social media to react to Young & Hungry‘s abrupt ending:
Young and Hungry, The Fosters, and Switched at Birth all cancelled, freeform is ridiculous. Also recovery road was a good show as well and that got cancelled

I really cannot believe that’s IT for @YoungandHungry like REALLY? Freeform really messed up not giving them a proper finale or going ahead with the movie.
Either way thank you to this show for giving me another reason to find a little joy in life.
