We knew there was something going on ... Remember, last month the crew and the cast of the series "The L Word" had been partly in a photo shoot for a special Pride Month edition of the magazine Entertainment Weekly.
In an interview, recorded during this photo shoot, all the actresses and the creator of the series had evoked their wish to be back playing the characters of The L Word and to continue their stories.
This time it's official! The L Word is back for a new season! The series will be produced by Ilene Chaiken apparently surrounded by new authors. Actresses Jennifer Beals (Bette), Katherine Moennig (Shane) and Leisha Hailey (Alice) will be executive producers.
Part of the basic cast and apparently the three characters that I have just quoted will be regular characters, the others will appear punctually and new characters will be introduced. This may involve creating a new team of characters that could lead to renewals of the series.
Now it is time for us to watch for the hundredth time the seasons of The L Word (five or six seasons as you want).
And if you are part of this new generation who was only 4-5 years old when the series was broadcast and if you didn't watch The L Word yet, go and watch all the seasons that you missed, you will understand why we are very excited by the news.
One day we had a series created by a lesbian woman, written and directed by lesbian women, with some lesbian and bisexual actresses and lesbian, bisexual, transgender stories, and the beginnings of queer stories. Well, this series comes back!!!
