Bold Type season 4 ended prematurely, with just 18 of 16 Hollywood mass production stops in March, and the cast ordered filming episodes. And so the Freeform series wrapped up its fourth season with some unexpected character twists and tons of unsolved plots. Recently, The Bold Type listener Wendy Straker Hauser explained how short season 4 really creates new opportunities for a potential season 5.
In the Season 4 finale, Sutton noted that her husband is still married to Richard, hooking up with her married ex-boyfriend, Kat Texting Ava, that things won’t move between them, and Jane tells Jacqueline after one of her stories. In front of the audience was on the edge of their seats.
However, the bold type has yet to be renewed, and Season 5 was released on the air right now. Speaking to the TV Guide, the listener described how the Bold Type Season 4 stories would continue if it is Season 5.
If we get to season 5, I think we are all going to sit down and have a lot of real conversations and if we want to make changes to some stories we want to know how we will make the changes. When we first finished and I interrupted, I thought, ‘Oh my gosh, we have a lot of incomplete stories.’ And then I spent a moment and kept going back to those scripts and I thought, ‘Wow, you know, maybe we have a chance to do something different here. And oh, we can see it here. ‘
Wendy Straker Hauser’s response is very much in tune with other listeners who have come to view the closure as a creative opportunity. It was actually originally written with the intention of keeping the door open about the relationship between Kat and Ava, whose father Kat was in public. Away as conversion therapy earlier in the season.

I bet if a bold renovation type is done for season 5, Ava will be completely off the stage and Kat will pass on to someone else who is more suitable for her. In fact, this is one of those stories where Wendy Stryker Hauser can really “do something different” with Kat’s career. Hopefully, the show is renewed for season 5 so they have that opportunity.
