The final season of our favourite girl-power series is available to stream, first and only on Showmax. 

When The Bold Type first aired in 2017, Jane, Sutton and Kat instantly became our favourite on-screen besties. We laughed, cried, and celebrated with them as they navigated life, love and their careers in New York City. 

Now, in the fifth and final season, after being pushed both personally and professionally like never before, the ambitious 20-somethings (played by Katie Stevens, Aisha Dee, and Meghann Fahy) are poised to uncover their true selves and make their voices heard, all while continuing to support each other through thick and thin. 

Saying goodbye is never easy, and the six-episode final season, which promises tantalising hook-ups, make-ups, break-ups and level-ups, is a fittingly bittersweet farewell for a show the AV Club called, “A heart-on-its-sleeve, good-for-you affair that’s also a glossy, giddy comic workplace drama.”

Get ready for that final subway scream (sobs). Watch The Bold Type now.
