Bette (Jennifer Beals), Shane (Katherine Moennig), and Alice (Leisha Hailey) are back. The first trailer for Showtime's upcoming The L Word revival, titled The L Word: Generation Q, reunites original series stars Beals, Moennig, and Hailey for more romance, heartache, and adventures — and, in Bette's case, a historic campaign to be Los Angeles' first lesbian mayor.
As Bette puts it to Shane in the trailer: "To new beginnings."
The eight-episode sequel to the iconic drama series, which first aired on Showtime from 2004 to 2009, also introduces "a new generation of diverse, self-possessed LGBTQIA characters," including Dani Nùñez (Arienne Mandi), Micah Lee (Leo Sheng), Finley (Jacqueline Toboni), Sophie Suarez (Rosanny Zayas), and Gigi (Sepideh Moafi).
Guest stars include Brian Michael, Stephanie Allyne, Olivia Thirlby, Fortune Feimster, and Latarsha Rose.
The L Word: Generation Q premieres Sunday, Dec. 8 at 10/9c on Showtime.
