The L Word: Generation Q is a continuation of the 2004 Showtime show The L Word. Generation Q was made to be more like the LGBTQIA community as a whole and to fix some of the mistakes made in the first series, like how transgender people were treated.
By bringing back some of the most popular characters from The L Word, like Bette Porter, Shane McCutcheon, and Leisha Hailey as Alice Pieszecki, the series was able to introduce viewers to a modern version of the classic show. New characters also deal with the unique pressures and problems that come with being LBGTQIA and trying to navigate work life and relationships.
The show was a hit right away, and now it’s going into its third season. Here’s what you need to know about the third season of “The L Word: Generation Q.”
The L Word: Season 3 Release Date for Generation Q
The third season of The L Word: Generation Q starts on Sunday, November 20, at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Showtime. On Friday, November 18, you can stream new episodes of the Showtime app, including the first episode of Season 3.
The new episode comes out every Friday on the app, but it airs on Showtime on Sunday nights.
WTW has confirmed this, but there’s a good chance that The L Word: Generation Q will also be on Paramount Plus in the US and UK. This is because the streaming service can bundle with the cable network.
The L Word: Season 3 Plot of Generation Q
The L Word: Generation Q season 3 starts right where season 2 left off, with Tina going to Bette’s house because she couldn’t move on with Carrie until she knew how Bette felt about her.
We know there’s a jump in time early on because Bette and Tina’s daughter Angelica is now 18 and starting her first year of college. So it’s likely that they won’t spend too much time in the days right after the end of season 2.
Season 3 will be about finding the right relationships, not just the ones that are convenient. This is different from season 2 when most of the main characters’ relationships were always changing.
Now, the main characters are really trying to figure out what mature relationships look like in this day and age and how to find “the one” and keep that relationship going when they are constantly being hit by distractions, temptations, and emotional baggage they all carry.
Showtime says that all of season 3 is about finding “the one”:
“The show picks up right where the dramatic end of season two left off, and the characters continue to struggle with secrets, old wounds, and new loves as they look for “the one.”
Tina shows up at Bette Porter’s door and puts her on the verge of either a heartbreaking letdown or a shocking confession. While they figure out their future together, their daughter Angie enjoys her newfound freedom at college and looks for love in all the wrong places.
“When Finley gets back from rehab, he goes to the bungalow and finds out something about Sophie that puts her recovery and their relationship in danger. Dani and Micah both try to move their relationships forward in big ways, but Gigi’s baggage and Maribel’s temper get in the way of their plans.
Shane and Tess are struggling with secrets that could tear them apart for good, and Alice isn’t sure if she’ll ever find her soulmate or if she’ll be alone for the rest of her life.
True love won’t be easy to find, that’s for sure. If Bette and Tina do get back together, Pippa, Carrie, and Gigi will likely cause some trouble for them. This time, the forces that are against them may be too strong to beat, especially now that Angelica is an adult and trying to figure out who she is. Finley, Sophia, and Dani are also likely to have some rough relationships.
