The Bold Type’ is one of the most innovative comedy shows made in recent times.

The Bold Type Cast: Who is in it?
Katie Stevens, Aisha Dee, and Meghan Fahy play the three lead characters of the show: Jane Sloan, Kate Edison, Sutton Brady. All the three work at the Scarlett magazine. Jabe is a writer, Kate the social media director, and Sutton is the fashion assistant. Other important characters include Matt Ward as Alex Crawford, Melora Hardin as Jacqueline Carlyle, Stephen Conrad Moore as Oliver Grayson, and Nikohl Boosheri as Adena El-Amin.
Other important characters in the show are Lauren Park (played by Emily C. Chang), Scarlett’s executive editor; Ryan Decker (played by Dan Jeannotte) and Ben Chau (played by Lucas James Lee), both of whom become Jane’s romantic interests for some time. Siobhan Murphy appears in the show as Cleo, Peter Vack stars as Patrick Duchand, and Alexis Floyd stars as Tia Clayton.

The Bold Type Plot: What is it about?
The story of The Bold Type revolves around the lives of three friends — Jane Sloan, Kate Edison, Sutton Brady — who work together at the magazine Scarlett. They navigate different professional challenges while also managing their personal lives. They fall in love, get out of it, and move along. They also have a nice boss, Jacqueline Carlyle, who, though stern, protects and loves them. One of the wonderful scenes in the show is when Carlyle dismisses a call from Beyonce because she was giving advice to Jane.
When Patrick Duchand is hired to take over the digital site of the magazine, Jane gets angry because she thinks it is stupid for a man to be running the digital site of a women’s magazine. There are clashes of ego between the new writer and the girls which take interesting turns.
The upcoming season of the show is going to be interesting because it might get political. While the fans found the first two seasons of the show inspiring because of the three ambitious girls at its center, the next season might push the boundaries. The show has always tried to keep important issues like the reproductive rights of women, sexual harassment at workplace, internet security and racism. That isn’t going to change even in the next season.
Regarding the success of the series, Fahy, who plays Sutton, had this to say, “To continue these stories and the fact that it reaches so many countries and people… I think that’s beautiful. It’s a story that resonates with so many different people.”
