Abstract Teen fiction series act as important socializing agents. The female stereotypes represented in them have the power to reconfigure the viewers\' identity construction, who will assume certain roles and apply them to their reality. This paper, which identifies a slow and superficial change in series aimed at adults (through Content Analysis and Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA)), analyzes female stereotypes and their relationtship with cyberbullying in series such as Gossip Girl, Pretty Little Liars and Get Even. The story\'s messages and values address the dulcification of sexual violence, toxicity within love, the trivialisation of death, the commercialisation of sex, the cult of beauty and technology dependence. The results reveal the existence of a real debate regarding gender and equality, but without tools that empower women against cyberbullying, which continues to represent the woman as the victim.
