“L Word” Sequel Gets Title & Premiere Date

Showtime’s The L Word sequel has a new title and a premiere date.

The highly anticipated revival has been titled The L Word: Generation Q and is set to debut this fall. 

Original stars Jennifer Beals, Leisha Hailey, and Katherine Moenig will be joined by a “new generation of self-possessed LGBTQIA characters experiencing love, heartbreak, sex, setbacks and success in Los Angeles,” according to the official logline. 

The sequel hails from creator Ilene Chaiken. Chaiken also executive-produces alongside show-runner Marja-Lewis Ryan.

“Marja has brought her unique and contemporary vision to The L Word and blended it beautifully into the fabric of Ilene’s groundbreaking series,” Showtime president Gary Levine previously said. “This revered show was both entertaining and impactful when it originally ran on Showtime, and we are confident that our new version will do that and more in 2019.”

Ryan told The Hollywood Reporter, “I want to find things that are uniquely LA but are super real,” Ryan said. “We don’t all work in the entertainment industry. There’s way more Latina representation because we’re in LA In terms of socioeconomic classes, the original did a pretty good job where like I still have friends that sleep on people’s couches, like Shane [Moennig] did.”
