The Bold Type's new boss wants to go deeper into tackling social issues in Season 2
New showrunner Amanda Lasher says she didn't want to shake up the Freeform series -- she wanted to go deeper into what it had been doing in Season 1. "We're tackling a broad spectrum of social issues, and what's really important to me is to always tackle these issues through the scope of the girls' friendship," she says. "I thought that this show did an amazing job tackling that storyline in season one and was very much ahead of its time with that. And I appreciated that, because the (MTV) show that I came from before this was called Sweet/Vicious, which also tackled sexual assault from the point of view of the survivor. I know how important those stories are and how meaningful they are. And I thought that The Bold Type did an amazing job with it."
