Katherine Moennig on the return of The L Word, and 'the lesbian Don Juan of West Hollywood'
The groundbreaking show is returning with familiar faces — and a crop of fresh characters
A lot has changed since the groundbreaking TV show The L Word first aired 16 years ago: both Canada and the U.S. have legalized same-sex marriage, and there's a far greater presence of queer characters on television. Still, The L Word: Generation Q hopes to fill a gap as the series returns for a reboot with several beloved original characters and a cast of fresh faces. Katherine Moennig chats with host Tom Power about returning to her role as Shane McCutcheon — a character that Vogue recently called the "lesbian Don Juan of West Hollywood" — becoming an executive producer on the series, and the reaction the reboot has had with fans old and new.
Season one of The L Word: Generation Q continues on Showtime. There are new episodes every Sunday night.
