Queer Women Have A Lot Of Feelings About "The L Word" Coming Back

"I can literally feel the gayness rushing through my body."

Posted on

If you didn't see the breaking news, an L Word sequel is really, truly, actually in development.

Showtime

The long since rumored sequel to the Showtime series, which ran from 2004 to 2009, is now officially in the works, sources told BuzzFeed News. It would feature old favorites Jennifer Beals, Kate Moennig, and Leisha Hailey (AKA Bette, Shane, and Alice), along with a new ensemble cast.

That means more of Bette's artistic swearing.

And more of Shane and Alice being...Shane and Alice.

News spread quickly through The L Word fanbase and reactions were mixed — from red hot to icy cold.

Many people are excited to see the gang back together again...

...but others would have preferred to let the show die along with Jenny.

A few members of the original cast joined in with the news with their own celebratory tweets:

@KATEMOENNIG

But so many questions have yet to be answered. Who will star in the new ensemble cast? Will the show still take place in LA? Will someone be in jail for murdering Jenny? Is Shane still very Shane?

People speculated about plotlines...

A lot of people have high hopes for the new cast and possible celeb appearances:

With so few details nailed down at this point, there's nothing to do but wait and see what happens.
