The good news is that we’re getting another season of Freeform’s The Bold Type. The bad news is that the fifth season will be the show’s last. On Jan. 27, Freeform announced that the show was renewed and that the final episodes will be airing later this year. “The Bold Type is a brand-defining show for Freeform. It’s been refreshing, relatable and fun to watch Kat, Jane and Sutton lean on their friendship to navigate the complexities of modern life,” Tara Duncan, president of Freeform, told Deadline. “It’s one of my favorite shows, and I am proud that we are giving the series the sendoff Wendy [showrunner Wendy Straker Hauser], the incredible cast and crew, and the beloved fans all deserve.”
The end of season four saw Kat (Aisha Dee), Jane (Katie Stevens), and Sutton (Meghann Fahy) testing their limits in precarious situations as they figure out where to go with their futures. “The Bold Type has been a gift that has truly changed my life,” Wendy Straker Hauser, showrunner and executive producer, shared with Deadline. “I spent my twenties in New York City working in magazines, so in many ways the show feels very personal to my experiences. I have truly loved writing this show and living in this world. I will miss it terribly, but I am so grateful for the opportunity and glad to know it’s been a comfort to so many people out there.” We can’t wait to see where Kat, Jane, and Sutton’s story goes before the show comes to an end. But in the meantime, check out the cast’s recent season five table read in the video ahead.
