The Bold Type: Sam Page returns for the final season – but can Richard and Sutton fix their marriage?
Another significant other from The Bold Type will be back for the fifth and final season of the freeform drama. TVLine can exclusively confirm that Sam Page, who plays Sutton’s estranged husband Richard, will repeat his role during the show’s swan song. It is unclear how many installments he will appear in during the abbreviated six-episode finale.
As viewers will remember, season four was a difficult one for Sutton and Richard, whose marriage fell apart after a miscarriage and Sutton’s admission that she doesn’t want children. Richard, however, desires dearly to be a father and eventually left his wife because of her rift. In the de facto season finale – Season 4, which ended early due to the suspension of coronavirus production – Sutton ventured home to comfort himself after Richard’s departure, but instead found several bottles of alcohol in her alcoholic mother’s refrigerator. Then, while Sutton drowned her sorrows drunk, she joined her married ex-boyfriend.
When Richard reappears last season, he and Sutton are still separated, but they intersect when he returns to New York. Showrunner Wendy Straker Hauser previously told TVLine whether the two could overcome their differences and be reconciled: “We love Sutton and Richard. You have never hit real, huge roadblocks. I hope they get to know each other better and we’ll see. I don’t think the door is closed forever. “
In the last season, which took place on Wednesday, May 26th, at 10.9. Has its premiere, according to the official summary, Jane, Kat and Sutton are “on the verge of defining who they really are and how they can best leave their mark on the world”. “Their future is bright and their love and support for one another will never change.” As previously announced, Nikohl Boosheri will also repeat her role as Kat’s ex-girlfriend Adena.
