Showtime’s “The L Word” is getting a sequel, along with a new title. The network announced on Wednesday that the official title for the sequel is “The L Word: Generation Q,” and it is scheduled to release later this fall.
“The L Word: Generation Q” is launching sometime at the end of 2019, but Showtime stopped short of confirming the premiere date. Marja-Lewis Ryan (The Four-Faced Liar, 6 Balloons) serves as showrunner for the series and is executive producing with original series creator Ilene Chaiken and original series stars Jennifer Beals, Katherine Moennig, and Leisha Hailey. Kristen Campo also serves as executive producer.
The series is slated to begin production on eight new episodes in Los Angeles this summer. The pilot is directed by Steph Green who also serves as executive producer on the episode.
You can take a trip down memory lane with a flashback to the original series in the video below.
The original iconic series ran from 2004-2009 on Showtime. In this sequel, Beals, Moennig and Hailey will resume their original roles alongside a new generation of “diverse, self-possessed LGBTQIA characters experiencing love, heartbreak, sex, setbacks and success in L.A.” according to the network.
The original series sparked subsequent versions, including the docuseries “The Real L Word” and “L Word Mississippi: Hate the Sin.”
Fans will have to wait a little longer to get the exact premiere date for the new show, but that information should be coming out over the next few weeks. At that time, the network will most likely drop a new trailer for the first season, and we will get a first look at the next generation of stars.
A lot can happen in a week, you can find more Movie and TV News to catch up on.
