Showtime has unveiled the official title of its “The L Word” sequel as “The L World: Generation Q,” which will debut this fall. Marja-Lewis Ryan (“The Four-Faced Liar,” “6 Balloons”) serves as showrunner and is executive producing with original series creator Ilene Chaiken and original series stars Jennifer Beals, Katherine Moennig and Leisha Hailey. Kristen Campo also serves as executive producer.
In this sequel, Beals, Moennig and Hailey will resume their original roles alongside a new generation of diverse, self-possessed LGBTQIA characters experiencing love, heartbreak, sex, setbacks and success in Los Angeles. The series sparked subsequent versions, including the docuseries “The Real L Word” and “L Word Mississippi: Hate the Sin.”
The series is slated to begin production on eight new episodes in Los Angeles this summer. The pilot is directed by Steph Green who also serves as executive producer on the episode.
