Another from The daring typeThe other signers will be back for the fifth and final season of the drama Freeform. TVLine can exclusively confirm that Sam Page, who plays Sutton’s husband Richard, will reprise his role during the show’s swan song. It’s unclear how many installments he will appear in the last six-episode abridged series.
As viewers will recall, Season 4 was a tough one for Sutton and Richard, whose marriage fell apart after a miscarriage and Sutton’s confession that she didn’t want children. Richard, however, truly desires to be a father and ultimately left his wife due to their division. In the de facto season finale – Season 4 ended early due to the shutdown of coronavirus production – Sutton ventured to her home for comfort after Richard left, but instead found several bottles of alcohol in the refrigerator of his alcoholic mother. Then, while drowning his drunken grief, Sutton met her married ex-boyfriend.
When Richard resurfaces in the final season, he and Sutton are still separated, but they cross paths when he returns to New York. As to whether the couple can overcome their differences and come to terms with each other, showrunner Wendy Straker Hauser previously told TVLine, “We love Sutton and Richard. They never hit real obstacles. I hope they get to know each other better and we’ll see. I certainly don’t think the door is closed forever.
Premiering Wednesday, May 26 at 10 / 9am, the final season finds Jane, Kat and Sutton “on the verge of defining who they really are and how best to make their mark on the world,” according to the official synopsis. “Their future is bright and their love and support for each other will never change.” As previously announced, Nikohl Boosheri will also reprise her role as Kat’s ex-girlfriend, Adena.
