ALERT: There May Be An “L Word” Reboot In The Works

by Miriam Mosher

Queer women are rejoicing at the twitter hint that The L Word, the hit show that followed the lives of a group of L.A. lesbians, may be returning. Ilene Chaiken, the woman behind the show, tweeted, out of the blue, “So excited, can’t wait…!” with the twitter handles of the majority of the cast. Further energizing the already excited fans, Kate Moennig, the actor who played Shane, the dreamboat who sparked many a young queer ladies’ sexual awakening, tweeted back her excitement.

Sarah Shahi, who played Carmen, piped in as well.
