We don’t know The L Word: Generation Q Season 2’s release date or when we can expect a trailer to roll up the driveway into the center of our collective lives on this planet, but we do know some things about what to expect from The L Word Generation Q Season Two. Not a LOT of things, but some things. Certainly more than other websites that have published similar posts that are somehow scoring higher than us on SEO, I think. This post will be updated as new information surfaces for us to feast upon.
Filming Is Happening Now
The L Word Generation Q Season 2 started filming in December and is set to wrap in May. Season One cast members Jennifer Beals, Kate Moennig, Leisha Hailey, Rosanny Zayas, Arienne Mandi, Leo Sheng, Jacqueline Toboni, Jamie Clayton, Sepideh Moafi, Jordan Hull and Jillian Mercado have all posted or appeared in pictures from the set.
Rosie O’Donnell is playing Tina’s fiancée, Carrie
In December, it was announced that O’Donnell will be playing Carrie, “a kindhearted public defender who is thrust into Bette’s life and quickly gets under her skin” on Season 2 of The L Word Generation Q. O’Donnell has since taken pictures and posted TikToks from the set of the show. Eagle ears recognized that “Carrie” was the name of Tina Kennard’s fiancee. Rosie returned home in mid-February, so her run is probably just a few episodes. Jennifer Beals has tagged photos of herself and Rosie as #bettesworstnightmare.
Angie Porter-Kennard Might Be Meeting Her ?!Half-Sister?!
According to IMDB, Brook’Lynn Sanders, a teenage actress, has acquired the recurring co-star role of “Kayla Allenwood” in The L Word Generation Q Season 2. People who know too much about The L Word will recognize “Allenwood” as the last name of Marcus Allenwood, the artist who gave his sperm to Bette and Tina so that they could make a baby. Also, Angie is a series regular now so there will be so much more of her in general!
Donald Faison Will Play Tom, Alice’s Book Editor?
The Scrubs star will be appearing as a successful and funny book editor who is working with Alice on something. Perhaps that something… is a book?
Alice Has a (New?) (Old?) Show Called “The Chart”
Leo Sheng recently did a “Season 2 Photodump” and one of the pictures featured what is described as “a poster from Alice’s talk show set” with “logos for where to stream Alice’s show (within the world of Gen Q).” “The Chart” was, of course, the name of Alice’s truly terrible KCRW radio show from Seasons 2 + 3 of the original series in which she basically told everybody in Los Angeles about the sexual liaisons of all of her closest friends, and then was sad about Dana for a long time. Anyhow! Will The Chart be a podcast or a TV show? Do people call podcasts “streaming”? But also, the headphones on the boob statue? Wow, so many possibilities here.
Cops and Detectives Will Be Present
There seems to be a few characters described as cops or detectives and none of them are named Tasha Williams. If this is about Bette defending Angie from that guy trying to attack her on the stairs after the play then I swear to G-d I will scream into every throw pillow in the Los Angeles metro area. (With a mask on.)
Tina is Back
Tina’s fiancee Carrie being part of the show is a pretty solid hint that Tina’s returning to our lives and so are the photos of her on set and in table reads!
Bette’s Returning to the Art World
Griffin Dunne (I Love Dick, Girls) is set to guest star as Isaac, a big international art dealer who builds a relationship with Bette. There is also a recurring role described as a sophisticated Black female artist whose progressive and well-established work addresses racism. Furthermore there are a few other art-related characters already slated to exist, including a few artists, another recurring male international art dealer, an art assistant and an “art enthusiast.”
Carolina Gutierrez plays Marissa
We do not know anything about this character besides that she is listed as appearing in at least three episodes — starting with the first episode. She is probably not the same Marissa who was Shane’s assistant at Wax. But if she is, she should clean up that milkshake.
Shane and Tess Will Have “Complicated Dynamic” in The L Word Generation Q Season 2
On the PANTS podcast, Kate Moennig was like, working with Jamie is “reminiscent of the original show” and also all of Jamie’s scenes are with Kate and also their characters have a “complicated dynamic” in which they “challenge each other.” “We’re definitely like an It’s Complicated,” said Jamie. “It’s Complicated, totally, Facebook Status 100%,” Kate said. “It’s complicated. Are we giving anything away? I don’t think so.”
Dani and Gigi Look Great … Together?
