Showtime has announced that season 2 will premier on streaming and on-demand for Showtime subscribers August 6, with an on-air premier to follow on August 8 (10 p.m. EST/PT). It features original series characters Bette (Jennifer Beals), Shane (Katherine Moennig), and Alice (Leisha Haley), along with Dani (Arienne Mandi), Micah (Leo Sheng), Sarah (Jacqueline Toboni), Sophie (Rosanny Zayas) and Gigi (Sepideh Moafi) who were introduced in the first season of “Generation Q.” Bette and Tina’s daughter, Angie (Jordan Hull), who was a reoccurring character in the first season, has been updated to series regular.

Over the past six months, we’ve been treated to a few hints as to what we might expect in the second season. It will feature guest stars Donald Faison (“Scrubs), Griffin Dunne (“I Love Dick”) and Vanessa Williams (“Candyman”), who plays a reclusive artist Bette is determined to track down (because of course she is). The season will also feature lesbian legend Rosie O’Donnell as Carrie, a public defender and Tina’s fiance.

Showtime has also announced that each new episode will be available for streaming and on-demand viewing on Fridays. The first five episode will air on Sundays, with the final five airing on Mondays before the season finale on October 11.
Filming for the second season wrapped on May 25, prompting cast members like Haley, Moennig, Beals, and Jillian Mercado — who plays reoccurring character Maribel Suarez, an immigration lawyer and Sophie’s sister — to make celebratory posts on Instagram.
