Does “The L Word: Generation Q” Take Place in a Sex-Crazed “San Junipero”?

Judging from the new trailer, it's a possibility (and we are SO here for it).

Save us a seat at The Planet, because a new trailer for The L Word: Generation Q is here and we are counting the days until the reboot premieres.

The Generation Q preview mainly focuses on the set of new characters. In addition to some steamy girl-on-girl action, it also gives us brief updates on major characters from the original series—like Bette Porter (Jennifer Beals), who is now running for mayor of Los Angeles, and Alice Pieszecki (Leisha Hailey), who appears to be a talk show host, of all things.

According to the sequel’s official description, leading ladies from the show’s original run will reprise their iconic roles alongside “a new generation of self-possessed LGBTQIA characters experiencing love, heartbreak, sex, setbacks and success in Los Angeles.”

In addition to cameos from other original cast members, the new series will feature guest stars like Fortune Feimster, Brian Michael, Latarsha Rose, and Stephanie Allyne. Original showrunner Ilene Chaiken has also returned to executive-produce with showrunner Marja-Lewis Ryan (The Four-Faced Liar).

In a statement, Showtime President Gary Levine praised Ryan for her vision: “Marja has brought her unique and contemporary vision to The L Word and blended it beautifully into the fabric of Ilene’s groundbreaking series. This revered show was both entertaining and impactful when it originally ran on Showtime, and we are confident that our new version will do that and more in 2019.”

The eight-episode season will premiere Sunday, December 8, on Showtime. Until then, check out the steamy new trailer below.

I write about drag queens. Dolly Parton once ruffled my hair and said I was "just the cutest thing ever."
