Freeform has announced that buzzy magazine dramedy The Bold Type has been renewed for a second and third season, both of which will feature 10 episodes. However, per The Hollywood Reporter, creator and showrunner Sarah Watson has been replaced due to creative differences with the network.
“At Freeform, we are committed to delivering shows that celebrate the power and possibility of the female voice,” said Karey Burke, exec vp programming and development at Freeform. “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.”
From Watson (Parenthood) and executive produced by Joanna Coles, The Bold Type follows best friends and co-workers at famed women’s magazine Scarlet Jane, Sutton, and Kat as they deal with having their first real jobs, lean on one another in the good times and bad, and steer Scarlet toward a much-needed evolution.
The Bold Type is part of a scripted slate for Freeform that includes The Fosters, Shadowhunters, and Famous in Love. This year the network has said goodbye to Baby Daddy, reportedly cancelled to make room for black-ish spinoff grown-ish, and Stitchers, which was cancelled on a cliffhanger.
The first season of The Bold Type concluded last month on Freeform.
