“Lip Sync Battle is back and having more fun than ever for our fifth season,” executive producer Casey Patterson tells EW. “We are obsessed Younger fans and can’t wait for our audience to see what Nico and Molly have come up with. They’re going all the way!”
Younger, which wrapped up its fifth season on TV Land last month, is jumping to Lip Sync Battle home Paramount Network for season 6, which will premiere in spring 2019. The show will be part of the new Thursday night lineup kicking off in January with First Wives Club (from Girls Trip’s Tracy Oliver)and continue into summer with a full-series order of Younger creator Darren Star’s 10 episode, half-hour series Emily in Paris (working title).
