'The L Word: Generation Q' Season 2: Release date, spoilers and all about Showtime series
The first season of ‘The L Word: Generation Q’ turned out to be a hit for Showtime and the network is trying to capitalize on that success by coming out with another season of the beloved show. The show is set over ten years after the original ‘L Word’ series and continues to follow the intermingled lives of Bette Porter (Jennifer Beals), Alice Pieszecki (Leisha Hailey), and Shane McCutcheon (Katherine Moennig), along with new characters Dani Nùñez (Arienne Mandi), Micah Lee (Leo Sheng), Finley (Jacqueline Toboni), Sophie Suarez (Rosanny Zayas) and Gigi (Sepideh Moafi) as they experience love, heartbreak, sex, setbacks and success in LA.
The original show, titled ‘The L Word’, was a huge success for Showtime and ran for six seasons. The show was considered to be revolutionary at the time because it was the TV series to feature an ensemble cast made up of lesbian and bisexual female characters.

Release date and how to watch
Season 2 of ‘The L Word: Generation Q’ will be premiering exclusively on Showtime, once again. According to Futon Critics, the series will be taking the 10 pm (EST) slot once again. Viewers can download the Showtime App for watching the show. The network can also be streamed via different devices such as Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, Apple TV, Google Chromecast, Roku, and Xbox One. If you are not based out of the US, then you might need to use a VPN to watch the series.
After the ending of Season 1, we’ll probably see the makers getting back into the heart of various dramatic arcs. We will hopefully learn who Sophie chose to be with after her intense love triangle with Finley and Dani. Alice's love life will also figure into Season 2 as she and Nat pursue their relationship following their failed polyamorous triad with Gigi, who might have some tense situations with the new couple going forward.
During the end moments of Season 1, Sophie finds herself caught between two women. Dani is waiting for her to show up at the airport during the final boarding call to Hawaii while Finey waits for the plane to take her back to her sister’s wedding. Viewers get to see Sophie rushing into the airport and through the terminal. However, we don’t get to see who she’s meeting.
The finale ends on this cliffhanger, this image of Sophie standing there, leaving us to guess who she’s meeting.
Most of the main cast is returning for the upcoming edition. The show will see Jennifer Beals reprising the role of Bette Porter while Katherine Moennig will be back as Shane McCutcheon. On the other hand, Leisha Hailey will portray Alice Piezecki once again. Additionally, we will be seeing Arienne Mandi as Dani Núñez, Sepideh Moafi as Gigi Ghorbani, and Leo Sheng as Micah Lee.
Other characters to feature on the show include Jacqueline Toboni (Sarah Finley), Rosanny Zayas (Sophie Suarez), and Jordan Hull (Angelica “Angie” Porter-Kennard).
The show is created by the trio of Ilene Chaiken, Kathy Greenberg, and Michele Abbott. Meanwhile, it is developed by Marja-Lewis Ryan. Tatiana Suarez-Pico is producing the show while Beals, Moennig, Hailey, Chaiken, Lewis Ryan, Steph Green, Allyce Ozarski, Kristen Campo, and Maisha Closson serve as executive producers on the project.
