Has The Bold Type been cancelled?

The Bold Type season five premiered in May 2021 on Freeform – but sadly this will be the final series.

This is significantly shorter than season 4’s 16 episode long series and the first three seasons 10 episode run.

Show bosses haven’t revealed why The Bold Type has been cancelled, but according to TV Series Finale, the fourth season of The Bold Type saw a 32% decline in viewership compared to season 3.

“It’s been refreshing, relatable and fun to watch Kat, Jane and Sutton lean on their friendship to navigate the complexities of modern life.

“It’s one of my favourite shows, and I am proud that we are giving the series the sendoff Wendy [Straker Hauser, showrunner], the incredible cast and crew, and the beloved fans all deserve.”

Showrunner Wendy Straker Hauser added: “The Bold Type has been a gift that has truly changed my life.
