A network for the Younger spinoff has not yet been determined, and it’s unclear if the pilot, which has not yet been scripted or filmed, could air as a planted episode of the comedy’s previously announced seventh season, per The Hollywood Reporter.
Fans last saw Kelsey in the season 6 finale handing Charles (Peter Hermann) her resignation letter to start her own imprint with Quinn (Laura Benanti). However, Kelsey changed her mind at the end of the episode and agreed to return to Millennial, a move that will probably have major consequences given that she left Quinn high and dry.
At this time, it is too early to determine how the potential Younger spin-off would affect Duff’s role in the main series – or even the Lizzie McGuire reboot, which is currently on hiatus – but it is possible that her character won’t be staying at Millennial for much longer.
Younger stars Sutton Foster, a 40-something woman who pretends to be in her 20s to land a job in book publishing. The series, which wrapped up its sixth season last September, also stars Nico Tortorella, Peter Hermann, Miriam Shor, Debi Mazar, Molly Bernard and Charles Michael Davis.
