Get excited The Bold Type fans, because the Freeform show has been picked up for TWO more seasons!
The Hollywood Reporter has officially confirmed that The Bold Type will be returning for a season two and three. The first season concluded in September and was so good I made several unofficial threats in my head to the network if the show didn’t return and holy dreams come true here we are.
If you haven’t seen the first season, allow me to fangirl telling you about it. It’s about three young women in their early 20s all working their way up at the same magazine in different departments and it’s extremely inspiring. Each of the girls is extremely driven and ambitious. The show also tackles sexual assault, sexuality, and the pressure so many young people feel after college trying to balance their careers with adult life. Moving forward however, the show will continue to tackle the issues but with some changes to its creative team.
The series creator Sarah Watson will not be returning due to creative differences, but the show will move forward with Amanda Lasher who did MTV’s Sweet/Vicious as showrunner. According to Karey Burke, Executive VP Programming and Development at Freeform, the show plans to continue giving important issues a platform. Karey told the Hollywood Reporter QUOTE – “At Freeform, we are committed to delivering shows that celebrate the power and possibility of the female voice. Season one of The Bold Type brought culturally significant stories to the masses that not only entertain, but also empower our viewers to conquer the world — we are excited to continue to champion these incredible women.”
An air date for season 2 of course has not yet been released but, patience is a virtue. I’m just happy one of my favorite shows is coming back.
