"Topical” or “timely” TV shows have become ubiquitous in the Trump era. But as the Freeform series returns for Season 3, Matt Brennan explains: "For The Bold Type—a woke Sex and the City, a gentler Devil Wears Prada, a kissing cousin to Younger, a frothily entertaining soap for the Millennial set—mastering the 'topical' and the 'timely' is more than a narrative technique. It’s central to the series’ identity: With its Season One finale, 'Carry the Weight,' in which Scarlet editor Jacqueline Carlyle (Melora Hardin) reveals that she’s a survivor of sexual assault, The Bold Type presaged the viral expansion of the #MeToo movement and secured its reputation as a series more than ready to meet the moment."
