The L Word: Generation Q is set over ten years after the events of The L Word. It follows an ensemble cast of friends, the majority of whom are lesbians. The series relocates from its original setting of West Hollywood, California to Silver Lake, Los Angeles.
The series starts at ten years after the death of Jenny Schecter. Bette Porter is running for Mayor of Los Angeles to succeed Eric Garcetti, but her electoral position is threatened during a live press conference. Alice, now with her own successful talk show, is in a relationship with therapist Nat and struggles to mother Nat’s kids and get along with Nat’s ex-wife, Gigi, who is also the kids’ biological mother. The original L word characters reunite after Shane moves back to Los Angeles after selling her hair salons in Paris and New York. The new generation members are Dani, Sophie, Micah, and Finley. Dani Núñez, a PR executive for her father’s company, is girlfriend of one of Alice’s show writers, Sophie Suarez, who works with Finley, Alice’s personal PA. Their flatmate, Micah Lee, is an adjunct college professor who is crushing on their new neighbor.
A sequel to The L Word was confirmed to be in development by Showtime on July 11, 2017. Marja-Lewis Ryan was confirmed as showrunner and executive producer on November 20, 2017; original L Word series creator and showrunner Ilene Chaiken will serve as executive producer, with Jennifer Beals, Katherine Moennig, and Leisha Hailey also serving as executive producers.

(one of which is a conversation with L Word producer and cast member Kate Moennig); an episode of Margaret Cho’s podcast, The Margaret Cho, featuring comedian Fortune Feimster who will appear in The L Word as a guest star; and Cameron Esposito’s podcast, Queery, in which she interviews original L Word creator Ilene Chaiken .
