From We Are Lady Parts to Girls5eva: The 5 best TV series about female friendship on Stan.

There was once a time when shows about female friendship were considered revolutionary.

Just years ago, watching a series that centred on female friendship, rather than a boy-meets-girl romance, almost felt like a novelty.

But now, Hollywood has well and truly embraced a new kind of story. A story that isn't just about the search for a romantic partner.

After initially airing in the UK as a pilot episode in 2018, We Are Lady Parts is finally here.

The new British sitcom, which was directed by Nida Manzoor, landed on Stan last week.

The series follows an all-female Muslim punk band across six episodes as they encounter a series of highs and lows.

Starring Lucie Shorthouse, Faith Omole, Anjana Vasan, Juliette Motamed, and Sarah Impey, the series is told through the eyes of Amina Hussein, a geeky PhD student who is recruited as the band's new lead guitarist.

Along the way, the group navigate relationships, female friendships and cultural differences as they seek success in the music industry.

All six episodes of We Are Lady Parts are available to watch now on Stan.

Starring Katie Stevens, Meghann Fahy, and Aisha Dee, the much-loved series has delved into a range of themes across five seasons, including career, race, identity, female empowerment, sexuality, and relationships.

Most of all, however, The Bold Type gave us some of the most honest, realistic female friendships in TV history.

In fact, some viewers have suggested that the show rivals Sex and the City when it comes to representing true-to-life female friendships on screen.

All five seasons of The Bold Type are available to watch now on Stan.

The seventh and final season of Younger is currently streaming on Stan.

And while we're excited to see the end of one of the greatest TV love triangles of our generation come to an end, it's safe to say that we're sad to see the series finish.

Younger follows Liza Miller (Sutton Foster) a 40-year-old divorced mum from New Jersey, who lies about her age to break back into the publishing industry.

After getting a job in the industry, Liza starts dating Josh, a 26-year-old tattooist from her neighbourhood who mistakenly thinks she's the same age as him.

At the same time, Liza starts to develop a crush on her boss Charles, who is the same age as her but who thinks she's 26. 

From there, the series delves into a whole lot of drama as Liza embarks on an endless back and forth between Charles and Josh.

But Younger isn't just about a love triangle or the glossy world of the publishing industry.

Over seven seasons, the much-loved series has shined the most in its view on female friendships, including Liza's close relationships with Maggie (Debi Mazar) and Kelsey (Hilary Duff).

New episodes of Younger season seven are dropping weekly on Stan. You can watch the first six seasons of the series on Stan now.
