This is surreal – it’s coming back.
It will premier in 2019!
The series will reunite the original’s stars Jennifer Beals (Bette), Katherine Moennig (Shane), and Leisha Hailey (Alice), who are all also executive producing, “alongside a new generation of self-possessed LGBTQIA characters experiencing love, heartbreak, sex, setbacks and success in L.A.” Newcomer Marja-Lewis Ryan will showrun the series and also executive produce with original creator Ilene Chaiken. “Marja has brought her unique and contemporary vision to The L Word and blended it beautifully into the fabric of Ilene’s groundbreaking series,” Showtime president Gary Levine said. “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.”
