Showtime’s “L Word” sequel “Generation Q” is adding a trio of recurring cast members, including “When They See Us” breakout star Freddy Miyares.

Miyares, along with Jamie Clayton and Carlos Leal will appear in multiple episodes of the Showtime series, an eight-episode follow-up to its groundbreaking drama that aired from 2004-2009. Miyares played the adult version of Raymond Santana, one of the “Central Park 5” that was depicted in Ava DuVernay’s Netflix miniseries “When They See Us.”

On “The L Word: Generation Q,” Miyares will play José, who is described as “a charming and kind artist who is trying to move on from his complicated past.”

Clayton, who starred in Netflix’s “Sense8,” will recur as Tess, “a no-nonsense bartender who sees other people clearly but has a blind spot when it comes to her own relationships.”

Leal, who has appeared in “Better Call Saul,” “MacGuyver” and the upcoming film “The Last Thing He Wanted,” will play Rodolfo. He is described as “a strong-willed, manipulative CEO who strives to provide what he thinks is best for his family.”

Marja-Lewis Ryan (“The Four-Faced Liar,” “6 Balloons”) serves as showrunner on the sequel and is executive producing, along with “The L Word” series creator Ilene Chaiken. Original series stars Jennifer Beals, Katherine Moennig and Leisha Hailey will return and will be joined by Rosanny Zayas, Arienne Mandi, Leo Sheng, Jacqueline Toboni and Sepideh Moafi.

According to Showtime: “In this revival, Beals, Moennig and Hailey will star on the series as their original characters alongside a new generation of self-possessed LGBTQIA characters experiencing love, heartbreak, sex, setbacks and success in L.A.”

The series will debut sometime in the fall.
