The upcoming Freeform series Cruel Summer has just been given a premiere date!

The new psychological mystery, from executive producer Jessica Biel, will have a two-hour premiere event on Tuesday, April 20th at 9pm ET/PT.

Cruel Summer follows two young women: Kate Wallis (Olivia Holt), the popular girl with a charmed life who one day goes missing, and Jeanette Turner (Chiara Aurelia), the nerdy wannabe who is accused of being connected to Kate’s disappearance.

Phoebe Robinson is making her way to Freeform – possibly!

The comedian is working on adapting her book “Everything’s Trash, but It’s Okay” into a TV series on the network, THR reports.

Phoebe is writing the potential half-hour comedy series, and will star. She’ll also executive produce with Black-ish showrunner Jonathan Groff (no, not the Frozen actor).

The series “follows Phoebe (Robinson), a 30-something podcast star navigating her messy life. When her younger brother, Jayden, emerges as a leading politician, she’s forced to grow up and relies on her friends and close-knit family to help her figure out adulthood — since she doesn’t seem to have a clue.”

This would be Phoebe‘s second project adapted for TV, following her HBO comedy series 2 Dope Queens, which first started out as a podcast with Jessica Williams.

Freeform Renews 'The Bold Type' For Fifth & Final Season!

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.

Yara Shahidi and her mom Keri are working on bringing a new comedy series to the small screen!

It was just announced that the mother-daughter duo are developing Smoakland for Freeform through their 7th Sun Productions company, in partnership with ABC Signature.

“In case you wondering what we’ve been up to 👀 … Proud #TEAM7THSUNMOMENT,” Yara wrote on Instagram in all caps.

The new series was written by Jewel Coronel, and “centers around Oakland native Solo, the visionary of a budding cannabis company, who navigates family expectations, changing friendships, love, and her drive to break through the “grass” ceiling of the oft-closed terrain of the cannabis industry for herself and her community,” according to Deadline.

Jewel will also executive produce, alongside Zahir McGhee and the Shahidis.

Back in July 2020, it was announced that Yara and Keri had signed an overall deal with ABC Studios to form 7th Sun. They will “develop and produce scripted and alternative television projects for cable, streaming and broadcast.”

Sasha Compère (Love Life) is Brit, Samantha’s smart, loyal and always well-put-together ex-BFF.

And Garrick Bernard, a staff writer on Star Trek: Lower Decks, plays James, an isolating, high-functioning drunk who works in the tech industry.”

Leslye Headland will direct and executive produce with a script by Simone Finch.
