Why You Should Support The Bold Type (Because I Need A Second Season and So Do You)

I’ve talked about The Bold Type before, but this amazing show deserves a post of it’s own. Especially after that beautiful, emotional finale – the show just got better and better. Oh and because we still don’t know if we’ll get a second season* or not which is TERRIFYING so I need y’all to go and support this show that stole my heart (and will steal yours too!!!)

* Though maybe by the time this goes up it will have been renewed?? Not that that would make this post unnecessary – I still want to spread the love

Why YOU should also watch, love and support The Bold Type

๐Ÿ’›ย It’s about three best friends who work at the same magazine together (friendship!!)
๐Ÿ’›ย One of them is a black bisexual woman!
๐Ÿ’›ย Who falls in love with a lesbian Muslim!!

๐Ÿ’›ย Their relationship is the main ship on the show????

me screaming about Kadena

๐Ÿ’›ย Their relationship is build up slowly and beautifully and is healthy and just

๐Ÿ’›ย Don’t mind me crying over here okay

๐Ÿ’›ย The magazine the girls work at is a women’s magazine, but it doesn’t just talk about fashion, makeup, relationships etc. but is also very feminist

๐Ÿ’›ย The show itself is incredibly feminist and explores a lot of (other) important issues: immigration, sexuality, rape, breast cancer, misogynistic trolls on the internetย  to name a few and it does so beautifully

๐Ÿ’›ย The female editor-in-chief is not a bitch!! Devil Wears Prada Who??* She’s kind, inspiring, ambitious and hardworking, supportive, and really, really cares about her staff. She’s an icon and I know I already said she’s inspiring, but she’s SUCH an inspiration I love her

๐Ÿ’›ย The friendship of the three girls is the heart of the show and while the girls all have their own stories, relationships with other characters, it always comes back to their love and support for each other. Of course they sometimes fight, but whoever is in the wrong always realises their mistake and apologises for it. They always have each other’s back and it’s just such a beautiful friendship. While Kat’s realising that she’s bi the other two never make a biphobic or homophobic comment and are just excited for her when the relationship seems to be going well

๐Ÿ’›ย Besides Kat (black bisexual) and Adena (lesbian Muslim) we also have Alex (black) who is such a sweetheart. He’s an amazing friend to both Jane and Sutton and really funny and he’s just?? I love him??

๐Ÿ’›ย While it covers important and heavy issues, at it’s heart it’s a feel-good show: it’s funny, inspiring, positive, fun, heartwarming. There’s such a good balance with the heavy topics

๐Ÿ’›ย It’s amazingly written, directed, filmed and acted. It’s such a powerful show, especially the finale was amazing. One of the final scenes gave me chills and I was a sobbing mess. Just writing about it now makes me cry again.

๐Ÿ’›ย No romanticisation of abusive relationships?? They’re all healthy??

๐Ÿ’›ย As a journalism student myself it was so much fun to watch a show about journalism – and so inspiring! I just wanted to write articles myself haha

๐Ÿ’›ย And so many more reasons that I can’t put into words?? Or have forgotten because I have a terrible memory and I didn’t take any notes**ย It’s just so beautiful and amazing and funny and inspiring and important??

* Don’t get me wrong I love The Devil Wears Prada but I’m SO TIRED of this trope
** I want to rewatch it so bad but there are so many other shows I need to watch ahhh

Did you watch or are you watching The Bold Type? Did I convince you to watch it? Do you have any recs that are similar to The Bold Type that can keep me satisfied while I wait for season 2? (Please please let there be a season 2) Let me know in the comments!
