While much about “The L Word: Generation Q” season 3 remains under wraps, fans were treated to some big news this week: Kehlani will guest star in the upcoming season.
The out singer/songwriter announced the news on their Instagram feed Wednesday. The post featured a video clip montage of Kehlani with a caption for the show emblazoned in the lower right corner, along with an explanatory message: “from [binging] @sho_thelword to guest starring on #TheLWord. See you for Season 3!”
Although neither Kehlani nor the show have divulged any more details about who the she will play or how extensive their role will be, the news has excited fans, and even some of “The L Word” stars. Leisha Hailey – who plays fan favorite Alice Pieszecki – replied to the news with a string of heart emojis.
Jillian Mercado (Maribel Suarez) shared a similar sentiment: “they aren’t READY” followed by a smiling face emoji with its tongue out and two black hearts.
Showtime announced that “The L Word: Generation Q” had been renewed for a third season back in February. Otherwise, very little about what we can expect from the upcoming season has been leaked.
Details of season 2 had also been kept mum in the lead-up to its August premier in 2021, although fans were treated to a major reveal with the news that Rosie O’Donnell would guest star as Carrie, a public defender and fiancé to Tina, whose fate was left in limbo in the season finale which hinted at a possible Bette/Tina reunion.
Production on the third season began in June. In a press release, showrunners stated that the “results of all these complex affairs of life and love” that we saw play out in season 2 “will be revealed in season 3.”
