"The shows that defined a version of 'millennial' life in the 2010s were all about letting women behave badly: Girls, Broad City, Shrill," says Marianne Eloise. "Women in their 20s, liberated from tradition and expectation by diminishing job prospects and out-of-control housing prices, could finally do whatever they wanted. They drank, they fucked, they did drugs, they hopped from one low-paying job to another while sharing an apartment with a revolving cast of roommates. In the 2020s, though, it can feel like the party is over for a generation of women who flirted with hedonism. Freeform’s Single Drunk Female takes a stark look at the morning after." Eloise adds that "the show is a novel look at sobriety from a perspective that we rarely get to hear from. If the first millennial shows were about embracing the freedom in being unable to grow up in the way our parents did, Single Drunk Female takes a look at what happens when the fun spirals out of control. And, perhaps, how to grow out of that."
