Production[edit]

In February 2016, it was announced that Netflix had ordered a series based on Amoruso’s autobiography #Girlboss.[8] It was announced that the first season received an order of 13 episodes.[9] In June 2016, Britt Robertson joined the cast of the series.[10] That same month, Johnny Simmons, Alphonso McAuley and Ellie Reed joined the cast.[11][12][13] In July 2016, Dean Norris joined the cast in a recurring role.[14]

Principal photography took place in San Francisco and Los Angeles.[15]

Episodes[edit]

Reception[edit]

Review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes gives the first season a 32 percent rating based on 25 reviews and an average rating of 5.94/10.[16] Metacritic gives the series a score of 53 out of 100, based on 13 critics, indicating “mixed or average reviews.”[17]

Some critics[18] criticized the main character’s unlikeability, but praised Robertson’s portrayal.[19][20]

Critics were divided as to whether the show presented a feminist message. Jennifer Wright from New York Post called the show a “feminist fraud” because of Sophia’s selfishness.[21] However, Amy Otto from The Federalist praised it as a story of empowerment in the way Sophia creates her own brand based on her vision.[22] On April 18, 2018, Zimbio criticized the show saying it was “like the weird forgotten cousin of Degrassi“.[23]
