the l word gen q

Let’s go lesbians, let’s go! The official trailer for Season 3 of The L Word: Generation Q has dropped, and if I told you how many times I watched this 108 second video, you might question my sanity. As we count down the days until the November 18 premiere, here’s everything we screamed about in the trailer.

1. Bette Tells Us Our Time is Limited

The beginning and the end of the trailer starts with a voiceover from none other than Bette Porter saying that “so many of us have struggled, but our time here is limited.” Does this mean that someone is sick or dying? Are the Gen Q writers really going to kill someone off in the third season like the original series did? Or is Bette just being extra dramatic?

2. Lots of Kissing

Everyone is kissing in this trailer, including Shane and Tess, Dani and Gigi, Micah and Maribel, and Finley and Sophie. But it’s not just our Season 2 ships. In one short clip, Alice is dressed in pajamas and kissing a blonde woman. We cannot wait to learn more.

3. Angie Might Be In Her ‘Ho’ Phase

During the trailer, Angie looks bomb in a black suit and remarks: “this could be my ‘ho’ phase.” You do you, girl, but what happened to her relationship with Jordi?

4. Dani Wants to Move In With Gigi

Dani and Gigi are back at it again, and in the trailer, Dani says to Gigi: “we should just move in together.” Unfortunately, it’s not an immediate yes, as Gigi says she needs to talk to Nat about it. Is that a red flag? I so desperately want them to work out.

5. The Return of Open Relationships

Looks like Gen Q is giving open relationships another try. In a voice-over, we hear a character say “we date each other and we date other people,” though it’s not clear who is talking or who she is talking about. Let’s hope this is not another Nat-Alice-Gigi mess? Tbh, I would still be here for that.

6. Tibette Gives Us Drama

As we saw in the Season 3 sneak peek video, Tibette drama is in full force this season with Tina asking Bette: “Are you in love with me?” The official trailer doesn’t give us much more than the teaser, but it does show Bette screaming at the top of her lungs after Tina asks the question. Same, girl, same.

7. Maribel Says She Wants a Baby

Looks like Micah and Maribel are still a couple, but during the trailer, Maribel says: “I want to have a baby. But I don’t want to push you into something you’re not ready for.” I don’t know if Micah is ready, but I really think they’d both make great parents.

8. Carrie and Finley Bond

Carrie (Rosie O’Donnell) and Finley are hanging out and eating takeout when Carrie asks: “Do I just tell you about the tsunami of depression that kicked my ass?” Somehow, I feel like this is related to Finley’s alcoholism. We shall see!

9. Fletcher Makes An Appearance

Surprise! Queer musician Fletcher has joined the cast of Gen Q and after Shane gets water thrown into her face, Fletcher reads this show for exactly what it is: “the kind of sapphic chaos I live for.” She couldn’t have said it better.

10. Shane and Alice Kiss

If you ever wondered what would happen if Shane and Alice kissed, you’ll soon find out. They both scream! It turns out that’s because Alice is “really, really high.” Of course.


Season 3 of The L Word: Generation Q returns November 18 on Showtime.
