Younger spin-off featuring Hilary Duff’s Kelsey is ‘pretty much off the table’

The Four Percent


Fans of the hit Paramount Plus TV series Younger wished the show a fond farewell during its series finale on Thursday night, with series creator Darren Star also revealing plans for a spin-off have all but fizzled.

Star, who created hits like Beverly Hills 90210, Melrose Place and most recently Younger and Emily in Paris, had been developing a spin-off focusing on Hilary Duff‘s character Kelsey.

While the series finale revealed exactly what would have lead into the spin-off, Star told TV Line on Thursday that’s not happening anymore.

Thursday’s finale revealed that Rob (Steven Good) had been scamming Kelsey, leading her to find a new investor for her Inkubator, which she found in Reese Witherspoon.

The new partnership would have required Kelsey to move to Los Angeles, setting up the potential spin-off that’s no longer happening. 

‘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,’ Star said.

‘We resolved her story regardless of any notion of a spinoff,’ Star added, revealing that she would have left for California even if she was still with Zane (Charles Michael Davis).

‘Even if Zane had stuck around, I don’t believe they would have ended up together. Her journey was taking her somewhere else,’ Star said. 

‘It was always in our mind that she would set out for Los Angeles and start something new. There were a lot of iterations of that,’ the creator continued.

‘If Charles Michael Davis had been available to us, things might have played out a little differently, but it was always going to end with Kelsey doing her own thing, alone, heading to Los Angeles,’ Star added.

It was revealed in April that Davis and another series regular, Miriam Shor, were unable to be series regulars in the final season, ‘due to scheduling and Covid related matters.’

The spin-off series was first reported back in May 2020, though it was apparently never a ‘done deal,’ which Star even hinted at in an interview with Variety in April.

‘We’re talking about it. It’s a big question mark whether it’s going to happen,’ Star revealed. ‘It could be great, but we never know if these things are going to happen until they’re going to happen.’

He also added that the best way to describe the show was by calling it, ‘a bit of a female Entourage.’

Star’s Emily in Paris recently started production on its second season in the French capitol.
