The trailer has been released for Showtime’s reboot of everyone’s favorite queer drama The L Word, giving fans a glimpse into new characters and what to expect with the upcoming series.
The trailer for The L Word: Generation Q features a little bit of everything, from a lesbian running for mayor to same-sex romance (and sex!).
We get a look into the lives of returning characters: Bette (Jennifer Beals) is running to be the “first lesbian mayor of Los Angeles,” Shane (Katherine Moennig) is living the high life in a private jet, and Alice (Leisha Hailey) may be trying out motherhood with newcomer Stephanie’s child from a previous relationship.
We also get a sneak peak into the new characters introduced. Dani, played by Arienne Mandi, is a PR executive, according to Out, who’s inspired by Bette and proposes to her girlfriend. Sarah, played by Jacqueline Toboni, is clearly bold: she asks strangers if they’re gay and makes out with multiple people. Micah, played by Leo Sheng, is a gay trans man who has a crush on the hot neighbor, who he’s seen making out with on the couch later in the trailer. The trailer fails to give fans a glimpse of either of the trans women of the cast: Jamie Clayton or Sophie Giannamore.
According to LGBTQ Nation, fans can expect to see guest stars Fortune Feimster, Lex Scott Davis, Olivia Thirlby, and Brian Michael Smith join the cast throughout the season.
The L Word: Generation Q premieres on Showtime Sunday, December 8 at 10pm.
