Top pick

The Bold Type (Freeform, 10 p.m., series finale): After five seasons of Sutton (Meghann Fahy), Kat (Aisha Dee), and Jane (Katie Stevens) exploring their friendship, as well as professional and romantic identities, it’s time to bid goodbye to the women of Scarlet magazine—and the show’s media industry that probably exists in a parallel universe. The Bold Type will end its run with “I Want You To Have Adventures.” The drama, created by Sarah Watson, also stars Sam Page, Nikohl Boosheri, Stephen Conrad Moore, Matt Ward, and Melora Hardin as the world’s best boss.

It is narrated by renowned dog behavior expert and best-selling author Victoria Stilwell.
