Freeform, Disney’s young adult television and streaming network, announced today that breakout series “The Bold Type” has been picked up for two additional seasons, each consisting of 10 one-hour episodes. Amanda Lasher (“Togetherness,” “Gossip Girl”) joins the Universal Television series as executive producer/showrunner.
Described by The New York Times as “the most ambitious attempt to depict the millennial viewers the network was built for,” “The Bold Type” has garnered praise from critics at Vulture, calling it “the best surprise of 2017 so far”; Refinery 29 said it’s “refreshing – and reflective of an industry that now, more than ever, needs the voices of young women”; and Vanity Fair called it “the bubbly, ridiculous dramedy you need this summer.” TV Guide also noted that the series is “bound to knock your socks off,” while Entertainment Weekly simply said, “#LoveIt.”
Based on the life of Joanna Coles, chief content officer, Hearst and former EIC of Cosmopolitan Magazine, the series follows the lives of three close friends living in New York City as they navigate their career, sexuality, identity and ultimately find their own voice in a sea of intimidating leaders. Global women’s magazine, “Scarlet,” serves as the backdrop for the series – with Melora Hardin as “Jacqueline,” their boss and mentor, this rising generation of unapologetically fierce women are primed to take on the world and smash the patriarchy – one selfie at a time. Freeform’s love letter to modern feminism, “The Bold Type” tackles social issues and politics as much as it does love and fashion.
