Hilary Duff
is headed back to TV!

The "Lizzie McGuire" alum is set to star in "Younger," a new comedy that was just picked up by TV Land. The network announced Monday that it has ordered 12 episodes of the half-hour show. 

The series, from former "Sex and the City" executive producer Darren Star and starring Sutton Foster, is based on the novel by Pamela Redmond Satran.

Foster will play Liza, a newly single 40-year-old woman who embarks on a double life after her child goes off to college.

After receiving a makeover from her best friend, Maggie (Debi Mazar), Liza pretends that she’s 26-years-old and winds up scoring a job as an assistant to publishing house marketing executive Diana (Miriam Shor). She becomes fast friends with new co-worker Kelsey (Duff), who doesn’t know her secret.

"Everyone at TV Land is so passionate about this show and working with Darren," TV Land president Larry W. Jones said. "Younger’s serialized style is different for us, yet fits our brand with its humor and relatability. These are compelling characters that our audience will root for, love and love to hate."

We can't wait to see Hilary back on the small screen!
