The highly-anticipated reboot of popular lesbian-focused drama The L Word have revealed their new title and cast, as well as who will be returning to our screens.

Newcomers include trans man Leo Sheng as Professor Micah Lee, Arienne Mandi as Public Relations powerhouse Dani Nunez, Jacquieline Toboni as the pious Sarah Finley and Rosanny Zayas as TV exec Sophie Suarez.

Katherine Moennig, Leisha Hailey and Jennifer Beals will also return as original characters Shane McCutcheon, Alice Pieszecki and Bette Porter respectively.

“The L Word: Generation Q continues to follow the intermingled lives of Bette Porter, Alice Pieszecki and Shane McCutcheon, along with new characters Dani Nùñez , Micah Lee, Sarah Finley and Sophie Suarez as they experience love, heartbreak, sex, setbacks and success in L.A.,” the media release reads.

“Dani is a powerful and calculating PR executive whose ambition is only tested by her conscience. Micah is an earnest, soft-spoken adjunct professor who is forced to confront his fear of vulnerability. Sarah ‘Finley’ is a charming but unfocused assistant who struggles to reconcile her sexual orientation with her religious upbringing. Sophie is a TV producer who guards her heart and is quick to put other people’s needs before her own.”

Information about the reboot has been slowly eking out since 2017. No solid date has been set for the series premiere, which was expected to debut last year.
