A sequel series to The L Word has finally been confirmed, and it’s due to premiere on Showtime this year.

It will have an eight episode order and will introduce a new line-up of LGBTQ women in LA.

The series’ original stars, Jennifer Beals (Bette), Katherine Moenig (Shane) and Leisha Hailey (Alice) will reprise their roles and executive produce.

Last November, it was revealed that Marja-Lewis Ryan – writer and director of the Netflix original 6 Balloons – will serve as showrunner and executive producer on the show, which is being hailed as a “sequel” to the fan-favourite series.

The original series – which ran from 2004 until 2009 – also starred Mia Kirshner, Laurel Holloman, Leisha Hailey, Katherine Moennig, Pam Grier, Sarah Shahi, Rachel Shelley and Daniela Sea.

We don’t know about you, but we’re very excited for its return because of that finale. The last ever episode of the series saw the demise of the duplicitous lead character Jenny Schecter (Kirshner), and an investigation into her death.

Every single of her friends had motive to kill her, so the series was left open ended. Will we finally find out who murdered Jenny?
