The L Word: Generation Q is coming to an end, but there might be a silver lining on the horizon.

The revival of the popular series ran for three years, airing what turned out to be its series finale in January. Original cast members Jennifer Beals, Kate Moennig, and Leisha Hailey were back from the start, joined by fresh faces and a fun slew of guest stars including Fletcher, Kehlani, Rosie O’Donnell, Megan Rapinoe, and more.

Despite all of this, the show struggled in the ratings, and generally received mixed feedback from fans eager to have a show centered on queer women back on the air, but missing the chaos and drama of the original.

While fans may be sad to see Generation Q go, Deadline also reports that Ilene Chaiken, who created the original 2004 series, is working with Showtime on a proper reboot that will instead take place in New York City.

No further details are available about this alleged clean slate just yet, but fans are already expressing their excitement for Chaiken to potentially take the reins once again, as well as clamoring for the return of some of the characters who didn’t make it to Generation Q.

Word of a New York revival slipping out at the same time as the news of Generation Q getting canceled provides hope that the network is serious about keeping The L Word around in some iteration, and considering how many queer female-led shows we’ve lost in the past year, it’s a kernel of hope we very much deserve.

Where can I watch The L Word?

The L Word and The L Word: Generation Q are available on Showtime.

How many seasons is The L Word?

The L Word originally ran for six seasons, and Generation Q ran for three seasons.

Did The L Word get canceled?

The L Word: Generation Q was canceled after three seasons in March 2023.
