"What hell hath season seven of Younger wrought, you ask?" says Maggie Fremont. "I don’t even know where to begin with how disappointing this season and this finale episode have been. I’d like to blame it all on the lack of Diana Trout — the Trout will be Younger’s greatest legacy, right? — but the problems are much bigger than anything our One True Statement Necklace Queen could fix. (Although imagine how much more fun this season would’ve been with a newlywed Diana! What could’ve been!) The season has been both infuriating and pointless at times, with characters either lacking any kind of development or simply making decisions that feel so antithetical to who we’ve been led to believe they are, and much of that is on full display in this series finale."
Sutton Foster says Younger being over is "very bittersweet": "We wrapped in February, so we've been wrapped for a while," she says. "I've already cried all my tears and stuff, and I have to say too I'm really proud of our final episode. As much as I'm like, 'Aww, it's the last one,' I'm really excited for people to see it. Younger has marked seven seasons but it's also the last seven years of my life, so it is strange to think we're not all going to be coming together again next year. That just makes me sad but I'm also excited for new opportunities too. It's very bittersweet."
Foster says the musical was the final scene that was filmed: "That was our last day," she says. "It was actually cool because theater has been non-existent for the last year and we were in a theater, watching people entertain us, many of whom are my friends. It was so cool to have Broadway people on the stage performing. We were watching just being entertained. The the very last scene we shot was on the sidewalk where I just say, 'I think I'm gonna go home.'"
