The trailer for Season 4B of 'The Bold Type' actually reveals a lot. Jane is back from her mastectomy surrounded by all the love and support from her friends. But it doesn't look like she can be at ease when it comes to dating.
Sutton, who had the picture-perfect wedding last seen, is shown to be having some troubles with her husband, Richard. Maybe they're arguing about having children. In one scene a distressed Sutton also tells him that she cannot give him what he wants, as if to take the blame for shortcomings that aren't even fully hers.
The formidable Kat, who was towards the end of the last season out of Scarlet, is hoping for new beginnings. What will they be?
