A great many Millennial queer women probably first encountered the first faint stirs of not-entirely-straightness by seeing Kate Moennig on Showtime’s drama, The L Word. This specific queer woman certainly started asking some questions after seeing the antics of the gay and bisexual women of Los Angeles.
Fans have long been pining for a reprise of the show, which aired from 2004 to 2009, and now – a decade after it ended – the time has finally arrived.
The creator of the original show, Ilene Chaiken, will step in as the executive producer, and Leisha Hailey (Alice), Katherine Moennig (Shane) and Jennifer Beals (Bette) have confirmed their involvement with the latest series of The L Word.
The sequel will introduce new characters from across the sexual and gender spectrum, and we couldn’t be more excited.
Will we see the mysteries from the final season solved once and for all?
Will Carmen make a comeback in the reboot?
How are Bette and Tina? Did they move to New York?
And, of course: who murdered Jenny?
As avid fans of the series have also grown older and more comfortable, authentic and honest with themselves, it’ll be interesting to see how they perceive the original dykons a decade later. The L Word is set to grace our screens later this year.
