Showtime Plans “The L Word” Sequel

Showtime is reportedly developing a sequel to the groundbreaking lesbian drama “The L Word” eight years after the original wrapped its run.

A search is underway for a new writer to serve as showrunner and bring a fresh take that will document how relationships, lives and experiences have evolved in the past decade.

Series creator Ilene Chaiken will executive produce but due to her “Empire” showrunner duties she won’t be more involved.

Original stars Jennifer Beals, Kate Moennig and Leisha Hailey will executive produce and will appear as their respective characters helping to connect to what is said to be a new ensemble of women.

Other actresses from the original like Erin Daniels (Dana), Laurel Holloman (Tina), Mia Kirshner (Jenny), Sarah Shahi (Carmen) and Pam Grier (Kit), may appear in a potential new version.
