The Bold Type will return for a fourth season.
The series, which is produced by Universal Television, is inspired by the life of Joanna Coles (former Editor-in-Chief of Cosmopolitan). It follows the outrageous lives and loves of those responsible for fictional women’s magazine Scarlet. The rising generation of Scarlet women lean on one another as they find their own voices in a sea of intimidating leaders. Together, they explore sexuality, identity, love and fashion.
The Bold Type follows Jane (Katie Stevens, Faking It), Kat (Aisha Dee, Sweet/Vicious) and Sutton (Meghann Fahy, Miss Sloane), three young women juggling careers, love lives and embracing their identities. They’re joined by a cast that includes Sam Page (Self/less), Matt Ward (Arrow), Stephen Conrad Moore (Chicago P.D.) and Melora Hardin (17 Again) as Jacqueline, Editor-in-Chief of Scarlet Magazine. Season three is executive produced by Amanda Lasher (Riverdale), Joanna Coles, Ruben Fleischer (Superstore), David Bernad (The Mule), Matt McGuinness (Haven), Becky Hartman Edwards (Switched at Birth), Victor Nelli, Jr. (The Middle) and The District.
“Where The Bold Type really excels is the collision of big city dreams and aspirational gloss with explorations of some of the most prominent issues of today,” we wrote in our review of the show. “A series showing women of various ages quietly getting the hell on with it is something that we’d definitely subscribe to.”
The show, which airs on Freeform in the USA, returned to Amazon Prime Video in the UK last month for its third season. Now, within weeks of that debut, Freeform has ordered a fourth. Dee, Fahy and Stevens announced the news during Freeform’s part of Disney’s upfront presentation in New York this week. With the new season come a new showrunner, with Amanda Lasher, who took over the reins in Season 2, to be replaced by Wendy Straker Hauser, who has been a producer on the series since it began.
