Cue the sad tears… The Bold Type is coming to an end!

Freeform has revealed that the series will be back for it’s fifth and final season.

The Bold Type is a brand-defining show for Freeform. It’s been refreshing, relatable and fun to watch Kat, Jane and Sutton lean on their friendship to navigate the complexities of modern life,” Tara Duncan, president of Freeform, said in a statement. “It’s one of my favorite shows, and I am proud that we are giving the series the sendoff Wendy, the incredible cast and crew, and the beloved fans all deserve.”

“It has been a joy to watch Kat, Jane and Sutton live out their lives on screen over the last four seasons and become an inspiration for so many young women along the way,” Universal Television president Erin Underhill added. “This show will always hold a special place in my heart for its authenticity and ability to provoke meaningful conversations with each episode. I want to thank Wendy Straker Hauser and all the writers for telling these amazing stories that will undoubtedly live beyond the pages of Scarlet Magazine.”

The Bold Type stars Katie Stevens, Aisha Dee, Meghann Fahy, Stephen Conrad Moore and Melora Hardin, and “reveals a glimpse into the outrageous lives and loves of those responsible for the global women’s magazine, ‘Scarlet.’ The rising generation of Scarlet women leans on one another as they find their own voices in a sea of intimidating leaders. Together they explore sexuality, identity, love and fashion.”

The series will return with it’s farewell episodes later this year, with Nikohl Boosheri returning as Adena El-Amin for a recurring spot later in the season.

The Bold Type's Aisha Dee To Star In New Horror Film 'Sissy'

Aisha Dee has landed the lead role in the upcoming film Sissy!

The 27-year-old The Bold Type star will play Cecilia in the horror, social media satire flick, Deadline reports.

According to the site, “Dee plays Cecilia (aka Sissy), teen BFF of Emma. The two were going to grow old together and never let anything come between them, until Alex, her bully and tormentor, ruined all of that.

Twelve years later, Cecilia is a successful social media influencer living the dream – until she runs into Emma for the first time in over a decade. Invited away on Emma’s bachelorette weekend, Sissy finds herself stuck in a remote cabin with her high school bully…and a taste for revenge.”

Sissy will also star Emily De Margheriti, Yerin Ha, Lucy Barrett, Daniel Monks and Hannah Barlow, who also co-wrote the script and will co-direct with Kane Senes.

Filming is currently underway in Australia.

If you missed it, this past summer, Aisha called out her show The Bold Type and said there needs to be more diversity behind the cameras. See how the producers responded here.

'The Bold Type' Producers Respond To Star Aisha Dee's Call For Changes Behind The Scenes

Aisha Dee took a page from her character Kat’s playbook and spoke out publicly about the need for changes on The Bold Type!

In a lengthy post, the 26-year-old actress called for more diversity behind-the-scenes and even criticized her character’s recent storyline.

“By speaking out, I’m taking a risk. It’s scary, but it’s wroth it,” she concluded her post. “This is not judgment. This is a call to action. We deserve to see stories that are for us, by us.”

Now, the producing companies of The Bold Type, Freeform and Universal TV, are responding to Aisha‘s call for action.

“We applaud Aisha for raising her hand and starting conversations around these important issues,” they said in a statement, via THR. “We look forward to continuing that dialogue and enacting positive change. Our goal on The Bold Type is and has always been to tell entertaining, authentic stories that are representative of the world that Kat, Jane and Sutton live in — we can only do that if we listen.”

Aisha Dee Criticizes Her Character Kat's New Relationship on 'The Bold Type'

Aisha Dee Criticizes Her Character Kat's New Relationship on 'The Bold Type'

Aisha Dee is sharing her concerns about The Bold Type.

The 26-year-old actress took to Instagram on Wednesday (July 15) to channel her character Kat to bring to light the lack of diversity behind the cameras on her Freeform show.

“I’m ready to take a cue from my girl Kat. What would Kat do? She would take a stand and advocate for herself and all other marginalized voices to influence change,” Aisha wrote. “I am ready to push harder and speak louder for what matters to me: The diversity we see in front of the camera needs to be reflected in the diversity of the creative team behind the camera.”

Aisha continued: “It took two seasons to get a single BIPOC in the writers’ room for ‘The Bold Type.’ And even then, the responsibility to speak for the entire Black experience cannot and should not fall on one person. We got to tell a story about a queer Black woman and a lesbian Muslim woman falling in love, but there have never been any queer Black or Muslim writers in the room. In four seasons (48 episodes) we’ve had one Black woman direct two episodes.”

She then went on to criticize the “inconsistent” storylines of queer characters and characters of color.

“The level of care, nuance, and development that has gone into the stories centering white hetero characters is inconsistent with the stories centering queer characters and POC,” Aisha wrote. “I do not believe this is intentional. We cannot bring specificity and honesty to experiences we have not lived. And when there is a lack of representation, the way marginalized characters are treated is even more important because they have the potential to empower or perpetuate damaging stereotypes that have lasting and real effect on people.”

Aisha then addressed the problem she has with her character’s new relationship. In the last episode, Kat, who is an outspoken advocate for various liberal causes, entered into a relationship with a white, conservative, Republican woman who has a completely different set of morals than she does.

“The decision to have Kat enter into a relationship with a privileged conservative women felt confusing and out of character,” Aisha explained. “Despite my personal feelings about the choice, I tried my best to tell the story with honesty, even though the Kat I known and love would never make these choices. It was heartbreaking to watch Kat’s story turn into a redemption story for someone else, some who is complicit in the oppression of so many. Someone who’s politics are actively harmful to her communities.”

Aisha explained her decision to speak out about her show, saying that she’s ready to see change.

“I’m critical because I care, because I’ve seen firsthand the incredible impact of this show, and I believe in its potential to be better,” Aisha wrote. “‘The Bold Type’ has done so much food, but it struggles to understand the intersections man of its characters live in.”

After publishing the post, Aisha‘s co-stars Katie Stevens and Meghann Fahy showed their support by sharing her post on their own Instagram accounts.

The season four finale of The Bold Type airs on Thursday, July 16 on Freeform at 10pm ET.
