The L Word: Generation Q is an American drama television series produced by and airing on Showtime. It is a sequel to The L Word and premiered on December 8, 2019.

Along with some returning characters, Generation Q follows a new group of diverse, self-possessed lesbian and bisexual characters experiencing love, heartbreak, sex, setbacks and success in Los Angeles.


Reconnect with Bette, Shane and Alice ten years after we last saw them, and meet a new cast of LGBT characters. Like its predecessor, Generation Q features intertwined stories about the lives and loves of a group of lesbians and bisexual women in Los Angeles. The characters date, get into committed relationships, consider having families, hook up, break up, question their sexuality, stay in the closet, come out or sleep around -- sometimes all of the above.
