The Bold Type Season 4 Review

I feel this season grew up a lot and showed a new side to characters we have come to know and love.

Season four continues the story of our three main girls as they go through the trials and tribulations of being a twenty-something in the modern day. Sutton is dealing with the fact that her marriage might be breaking down due to her deciding she doesn’t want children after accidentally getting pregnant and losing the baby. Kat is now working as a barmaid and podcast host, she is broadening her horizons when it comes to her political views, and Jane has taken the very mature decision to have a mastectomy to limit the chances of her getting the same cancer that killed her mum.

As you can see from that short summary these topics are much more mature than say other shows might go into, especially Jane and her surgery and seeing how she deals with that, because that’s something that people will go through and isn’t a conversation that many TV shows have talked about. It normalises it and could give a lot of people peace knowing that they’re not the only ones going through it and making this hard decision for their health.

I also really enjoyed Kat’s storyline because she has been such a liberal open character to see her politics questioned and challenged by people from different areas was really fascinating, and also to see how much her politics plays into her relationships. We see in the show she starts dating a woman who is very conservative and almost completely against Kat’s views, yet they do always say opposites attract, and it’ll be interesting to see if this works out.

I am still enjoying the show and I feel it definitely picked up this season. I do see it winding down slowly and I am happy that season five is its last if it does continue this trend, because while it is still so strong and so informative to young women going through these struggles, it’s getting to a point now where if it continues it could end up like any other young adult drama and as I said in my Sex Education season three review I don’t always think that’s a good thing.

What do you think of season four?

Until next time.
