Showtime has a busy fall lineup this year, with new shows like “The L Word” are joining fan favorites like “Ray Donovan” and “Shameless.” Jim Carrey is back with a new season of “Kidding,” and Ariana Grande is making a larger appearance on the series.
“The L Word” sequel is called “The L Word: Generation Q,” and the show will premiere on December 8th. The series is executive produced by showrunner Marja-Lewis Ryan, with series creator Ilene Chaiken, Kristen Campo, Steph Green (pilot), and original series stars Jennifer Beals, Katherine Moennig and Leisha Hailey. The network said that the show continues to follow the intermingled lives of Bette Porter (Beals), Alice Pieszecki (Hailey) and Shane McCutcheon (Moennig), along with new characters Dani Nùñez (Arienne Mandi), Micah Lee (Leo Sheng), Finley (Jacqueline Toboni), Sophie Suarez (Rosanny Zayas) and Gigi (Sepideh Moafi). The story follows the group as they experience love, heartbreak, sex, setbacks and success in L.A.
The series is currently in production on eight episodes in Los Angeles, with guest stars Brian Michael, Stephanie Allynne, Olivia Thirlby, Fortune Feimster and Latarsha Rose.
Showtime also announced that “Shameless: Season 10” will begin on November 3rd. The show stars Oscar nominee and Emmy and SAG Award winner William H. Macy, and will be directly followed by the second season premiere of the half-hour comedy series “Kidding” with Golden Globe winner Jim Carrey. The tenth season of “Shameless” picks up six months after last season’s finale. The network teased that Frank (Macy) uses his leg injury to collect as many prescription drugs as possible and his exploits lead him to an old friend. Debbie (Emma Kenney), emboldened by the $50,000 left to her by Fiona, has stepped in as the new matriarch, ruling over the Gallagher household with an iron fist. Lip (Jeremy Allen White) navigates his relationship with a newly affectionate Tami (Kate Miner), and Carl (Ethan Cutkosky) has to decide what to do with his life as he finishes military school and heads back to the South side. Meanwhile, Liam (Christian Isaiah) is committed to learning more about black history and culture under the tutelage of V (Shanola Hampton) as Kev (Steve Howey) faces an identity crisis. Gallavich returns this season as Ian (Cameron Monaghan) and Mickey (Noel Fisher) rekindle their romance in prison as both cellmates and lovers.
The seventh season premiere of “Ray Donovan,” starring Emmy and SAG Award nominee Liev Schreiber, will debut at an earlier time on November 17th. The new season finds Ray working to be the man his family needs him to be. “Kidding” picks up moments after season one’s cliffhanger, and Mr. Pickles’ Puppet Time is off the air for the first time in 30 years. Jeff Pickles must find a way to communicate with his many fans who still need him and Jeff creates a new and controversial method to talk directly to children across the world. As Jeff navigates the most complicated moral gray areas of his life, he discovers a new side of himself in a season full of music, magic, puppets and pathos.
