Stan announced that critically-acclaimed series The Bold Type will return for a fifth and final season. The series will celebrate Kat, Jane and Sutton's journey in the farewell episodes set to air later this year. Nikohl Boosheri will also recur as fan favourite character Adena El-Amin later in the season.
"The Bold Type has been an incredible gift that has truly changed my life. I spent my twenties in New York City, working in magazines, so in many ways the show feels very personal to my experiences," said showrunner and executive producer Wendy Straker Hauser. "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."
Season 4 of The Bold Type left Kat, Jane and Sutton at their limits both personally and professionally at Scarlet Magazine. In the final season, our trio is on the brink of defining who they really are and how to best leave their mark on the world. Their futures are bright, but their love and support of each other will never change.

Fans all over the world have praised the series for its timely and impactful storylines that connect with viewers on a personal level.
