With Pretty Little Liars coming to an end this year, Freeform has been in search of something to fill the massive void the network’s number one show left. Enter: The Bold Type.
After finishing a strong first season, it was only a matter of time before Freeform announced The Bold Type would return for at least a second season. Now, the network has announced their newest hit will return for at least two more season with a new showrunner to boot.
Show creator Sarah Watson, who originally developed the show for NBC, served as showrunner during the first season but will not be back for the newly announced seasons after running into creative difference with the network. Amanda Lasher will take the reigns in her place.
The Bold Type follows three 20-something best friends living in New York City and working at a female-centered magazine called Scarlet. The show was inspired by the life of Hearst Magazine chief content officer Joanna Coles. It explores growing up and balancing personal, social and work life matters, even when those different facets end up bleeding together in a muddy mess.
Katie Stevens, Aisha Dee and Meghann Fahy star as our three heroines Jane, Kat and Sutton. Along side them is Melora Hardin plays Jacqueline Carlyle the editor-in-chief of Scarlet; Sam Page as Sutton’s boyfriend who happens to be on the board of directors at Scarlet; Nikohl Boosheri as Adena El Amin, a photographer who finds herself wrapped in in Kat; and Stephen Conrad Moore as Oliver Grayson who runs the fashion department at Scarlet.
There’s no word on when the series will return for its second season. The first season is currently available on Freeform on-demand.
