You might want to sit down.
News broke earlier today that our favorite lesbian show of all time, “The L Word,” is coming back for a glorious reboot. Showtime still has not released an official press release, but the show’s original creator and producer, Ilene Chaiken, tweeted the news, along with Kate Moennig, Leisha Hailey, and Jennifer Beals among others. And lesbians everywhere are going WILD!!!!
Let’s face the facts. Yes, there have been LGBT shows since The L Word. There have been shows with lesbians in them. But there has not been a show dedicated entirely to lesbians since the show went off the air back in 2009. Well, ladies, pop open a bottle of champagne because we are finally getting our show back! Some evidence:
Showtime confirmed the show’s return in an email and a press release is expected to follow. But we just had to share this as soon as we saw that Tweet! This is the news we have all been longing for since Kate and Liz Feldman joked about a reboot on This Just Out! And don’t worry, we are staying on top of this and ohhhhhh just think of the recaps…..
