L yeah! “The L Word” is coming back and fans have a lot of feelings about it

I’ll admit it, friends. When rumors started swirling about an L Word reboot or sequel, I didn’t think it would really happen. But yesterday, I was pleasantly proven wrong when Showtime announced that the groundbreaking show would be back, with some of the things that made the original great (cast members Jennifer Beals, Kate Moennig, Leisha Hailey and Sarah Shahi) and some fresh blood including new showrunner Marja-Lewis Ryan. One of the important things about this sequel that hasn’t been addressed enough is that the original leads, are all over the age of 40, with the exception of Shahi who is 39. Featuring a cast of characters that are not only queer, but also out of their 20s and 30s is a big deal. New cast members will be added, who will likely land in their 20s and early 30s, but we don’t often get to see such a broad age range of queer women talking, laughing, loving, breathing, etc on-screen.

Naturally, I wanted to find out what you all were thinking about this huge announcement. Many of you were super geeked, while some were flat out uninterested. Then there were those who just really wanted to make sure Jenny was still dead. (Don’t be surprised if you haven’t seen the last of Jenny Schecter, people.) Here are a few tweets with your thoughts on this sequel.
