‘The Bold Type’ Renewed for Two More Seasons at Freeform, Names New Showrunner

Freeform has renewed “The Bold Type” for Seasons 2 and 3 and will enlist a new showrunner, Variety has confirmed.

Each of the new seasons will consist of 10 one-hour episodes. Amanda Lasher will become the new showrunner, taking over for series creator Sarah Watson. Lasher was previously the showrunner on the acclaimed MTV series “Sweet/Vicious.” She also worked as a co-executive producer and writer on “Gossip Girl” and also as a writer and consulting producer on “Togetherness.”

Based on the life of Joanna Coles, chief content officer of Hearst and former editor in chief 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.

The series stars Katie Stevens as Jane Sloan, Aisha Dee as Kat Edison, Meghann Fahy as Sutton Brady, Sam Page as Richard Hunter, Matt Ward as Alex Crawford and Melora Hardin as Jacqueline, editor-in- chief of Scarlet Magazine. “The Bold Type” is executive produced by Lasher, Watson, David Bernad, Joanna Coles and Ruben Fleischer. Holly Whidden is co-executive producer. The series is a co-production between Freeform, Universal Television and The District production.
