A New Season of 'The L Word' Has Been Ordered — Because There Is a God

By

Viewers have been begging for a new season to The L Word for the past 10 years since the show ended and Showtime has finally (finally!) responded. After the successful drama that followed a group of LGBTQ (mostly L) women living in Los Angeles aired on their network from 2004 to 2009, the devoted fanbase has been clamoring for more. 

Just yesterday, Showtime gave the green light to The L Word sequel, which will keep some of the cast we know and love and promises some surprising additions — rumors are already circulating of Kristen Stewart joining the queer lineup.

L Word creator Ilene Chaiken is on board to executive produce this sequel (phew!) alongside Marja-Lewis Ryan (of 6 Balloons fame). Plus, original stars Jennifer Beals, Katherine Moennig, and Leisha Hailey have already confirmed they'd be reappearing in the sequel. 

Since this is such an emotional occasion, we've decided to check back in with our favorite stars from the OG L Word and update laughing, loving, etc. fans on where they are today.

1. Jennifer Beals (Bette Porter)

Who didn't want to either sleep with Bette or be Bette? The director of the fancy LA art museum was everyone's dream woman and she's set to continue her tenure as fans' crush in the sequel (yay!). Jennifer Beals confirmed as much on Instagram yesterday. But she hasn't just been waiting around for the reboot, the Flashdance star has been appearing on shows like The Chicago Code, Nothing Sacred, and most recently, Taken.
