Inspired by the life of Cosmopolitan’s editor in chief, Joanna Coles, The Bold Type offers a glimpse into the outrageous lives and loves of the three women who work at a New York women’s magazine. Beneath the glam, this millennial-favourite drama series is the story of a group of young women working their butts off and selling the best of their talents in an increasingly competitive industry.
The fashions are gorgeous and there’s plenty of romantic intrigue but The Bold Type doesn’t shy away from controversial topics. From the #MeToo movement to gun control to women’s health, each episode or story arc looks at serious issues from a fresh, real angle.
Aisha Dee, Katie Stevens and Meghann Fahy have all been nominated for Teen Choice Awards as Kat, Jane, and Sutton respectively. Emmy nominee Melora Hardin (The Office) plays Scarlett’s former editor Jacqueline.
The third season ended on a bombshell, so we can’t wait to see how the women pick up the pieces.
The Bold Type has a 95% critics rating on Rotten Tomatoes, an 8/10 score on IMDb, and has been nominated for seven Teen Choice Awards, including three for Best Summer TV Show, two Best TV Actor noms for Aisha Dee, and one each for Meghann Fahy and Katie Stevens. Glamour calls The Bold Type “one of the most delightful shows on TV,” while The New Yorker says it’s “a show to warm a jaded heart.”
Seasons 1 to 3 of The Bold Type are on Netflix in South Africa, and Seasons 1 to 4 are on Showmax.
