The game-changing series, The L Word, which premiered on Showtime more than 13 years ago, chronicled the trials and tribulations of a group of queer women living in Los Angeles, and for the first time in television history, gave lesbian and bisexual women a series that tackled storylines that had never before been seen on television, thanks to the actual queer women writers and lesbian Executive Producer Ilene Chaiken behind it.

“The show brought together friends, exes, and prospective lovers for regular viewing parties at local lesbian bars and private gatherings, making it appointment viewing every Sunday for all six seasons,” says Bendix.

The show went off the air in 2009, but Showtime confirmed, last week, that a reboot of The L Word with Chaiken was in the works. The show will include a new cast of characters who will “co-exist with original favorites: Bette (Jennifer Beals), Alice (Leisha Hailey) and Shane (Kate Moennig),” Bendix says.
