Freeform cancels Young & Hungry wrap-up movie plans
When Freeform announced the cancelation of the Emily Osment series in March after five seasons, the cable network said it was developing a two-hour movie that will “further the adventures of Gabi, Josh and their circle of friends.” Last month, Young & Hungry concluded its fifth and final season with a cliffhanger series finale. But last night, Osment tweeted the bad news that the cliffhanger won't be resolved on screen: "It breaks my heart to tell you that in addition to Freeform not giving our Young & Hungry audience the ending our show deserved, they have ALSO decided to not go forward with a full-length film.” Osment also hinted at the movie would've had a happy ending. “From me and my obvious future TV hubby Jonathan Sadowski we love you and we’re sorry," she tweeted."

Young & Hungry is ending with Season 5, but it will return as a TV movie
The second half of Season 5, premiering on June 20, will kick off the final run of the Freeform series. But the cable network also announced that it is developing a two-hour movie that will “further the adventures of Gabi, Josh and their circle of friends.” Emily Osment sparked rumors of the cancelation last month by posting that the show's "final 10 episodes" would air this year. The cancelation news comes one day after Osment was cast on a CBS comedy pilot.

Drew has quickly landed a pilot a week after being dropped from Grey's Anatomy, joining the CBS reboot of the classic police procedural.

Empathetic and straightforward, she’s the more experienced partner." Tyne Daly and Sharon Gless won six acting Emmys between them starring on the original Cagney & Lacey, which won two best drama series Emmys during its seven-season run.
