Television’s favorite queer drama is back for Season 3. The L Word: Generation Q, is currently in production, and the season is stacked with celebrity cameos and intense plotlines.
The L Word: Generation Q first aired in 2019, and is set ten years after the end of the groundbreaking original series by the same name (minus ‘Generation Q’). Season 2 of the series ended with many cliffhangers, and Season 3 will pick up where we left off. Gigi Ghorbani (Sepideh Moafii) and Dani Nuñez (Arienne Mandi) were working on their relationship before Dani was arrested, and Bette Porter (Jennifer Beals) was caught between her ex, Tina Kennard (Laurel Holloman), and current girlfriend Pippa Pascal (Vanessa Estelle Williams). Tess Van De Berg (Jamie Clayton) and Shane McCutcheon (Katherine Moennig) were also at a romantic impasse.
Here’s everything we know about Season 3 of The L Word: Generation Q so far:
