The L Word: Generation Q canceled after 3 seasons, New York-set reboot of original in development
The L Word: Generation Q is facing the 'C' word: cancellation.
The sequel to Showtime's groundbreaking series, The L Word, which ran from 2004 to 2009, reunited stars of the original with a cast of new characters as they navigated LGBTQ+ life in Los Angeles.

The L Word: Generation Q premiered in 2019 featuring Jennifer Beals reprising her role as Bette Porter-Kennard and Kate Moennig returning as Shane McCutcheon. Marja-Lewis Ryan served as showrunner with L Word creator Ilene Chaiken on as an executive producer.
Chaiken is expected to be involved in a reboot of the original L Word, under the working title L Word: New York, joining other spin-offs of established Showtime IP Billions and Dexter. The network has been clearing house since the announcement of a merger with Paramount +, under the not-working title, Paramount + Showtime.
American Gigolo, Three Women, and Let the Right One In were all axed amid the merger, while Millions, Trillions, Dexter: Origins, and now The L Word: New York are in the works.
