Lesbians ladies, bisexual babes, and queer cuties rejoice: “The L Word: Generation Q” has been renewed for a season two! The pick-up of the reboot’s new series was announced Monday morning at the Television Critics Association winter press tour.
“’The L Word: Generation Q’ took our original series that was revered and reinvigorated it for a new generation and a new era,” said president of entertainment at Showtime Networks Gary Levine in a statement to TV Line. “The result has been a show that appeals to all generations for its relevance, its fearlessness, its emotion and its fun. I can’t wait to see what [showrunner] Marja[-Lewis Ryan], along with [series creator] Ilene [Chaiken] and this talented ensemble, will deliver for Season 2.”

The new season is set to be 10 episodes — that means two extra hours to hang with ‘The L Word’ crew this time around.
The series is a reboot of “The L Word” and picks up 10 years after the ending of the original, though many familiar faces are still there, including Shane (Katherine Moennig), Alice (Leisha Hailey), and Bette (Jennifer Beals). Some of the new faces of the series are Dani (Adrienne Mandi), a PR boss; Sophie (Rosanny Zayas), Alice’s production assistant; Finley (Jacqueline Toboni), another production assistant with a bit of a drinking problem; Micah (Leo Sheng), a professor; and Gigi (Sepideh Moafi), a ex from the past who comes back in a good way.
