The L Word is officially coming back & lesbians nationwide are shook

Fifteen years after it first aired, Showtime has announced they will revive the lesbian drama The L Word.

Original cast members Jennifer Beals, Kate Moennig, and Leisha Hailey will be returning as their iconic characters “alongside a new generation of self-possessed LGBTQIA characters experiencing love, heartbreak, sex, setbacks, and success in L.A.,” according to the network.

Rumors of the show’s revival have swirled for years, but until now Showtime has not confirmed the groundbreaking series would return.

The show’s creator, Ilene Chaiken, will be an executive producer alongside the returning cast; Marja-Lewis Ryan will be the showrunner.

The show ran from 2004-2009 and helped shape how the LGBTQ community was portrayed on television and in the media. The characters were fiercely independent, successful, attractive and well written, but the storylines were often ridiculed for some outrageous plot twists.

The show’s multitude of fans have swarmed social media to shout their anticipation of the show’s return in late 2019.
