Cheer up, Bunheads!

If you're still mourning the loss of your favorite Amy Sherman-Palladino ballet dramedy, then this news should cheer you up: Sutton Foster has been cast as the lead in TV Land's newest sitcom "Younger," according to The Hollywood Reporter.

"Bunheads" was cancelled after only one season, but Foster -- who played the lead character Michelle -- will now star in the new series, executive produced by Darren Starr.

As described by The Hollywood Reporter, "'Younger" tells the story of a suddenly single New Jersey housewife who, unable to restart her career, decides to lie about her age and successfully passes as a young 20-something. Armed with a makeover and a new résumé, she wins a position at the city's hottest publishing company.

No word yet on when the series will premiere, but let's hope Kelly Bishop is available to play Foster's mother so we can have a mini-"Bunheads" reunion.
