Showtime has added four new series regulars to the cast of the “The L Word” sequel, joining original cast members Jennifer Beals, Katherine Moennig and Leisha Hailey for the next chapter of this LGBTQIA drama.
Rosanny Zayas (“Orange Is the New Black”), Arienne Mandi (“Baja”), Leo Sheng (“Adam”) and Jacqueline Toboni (“Easy”) will star as the next generation of characters in “The L Word: Generation Q.”
The original “The L Word” series aired on Showtime from 2004 to 2009. Per the network, the new series “continues to follow the intermingled lives of Bette Porter (Beals), Alice Pieszecki (Hailey) and Shane McCutcheon (Moennig), along with new characters Dani Nùñez (Mandi), Micah Lee (Sheng), Sarah Finley (Toboni) and Sophie Suarez (Zayas), as they experience love, heartbreak, sex, setbacks and success in L.A. Dani is a powerful and calculating PR executive whose ambition is only tested by her conscience. Micah is an earnest, soft-spoken adjunct professor who is forced to confront his fear of vulnerability. Sarah “Finley” is a charming but unfocused assistant who struggles to reconcile her sexual orientation with her religious upbringing. Sophie is a TV producer who guards her heart and is quick to put other people’s needs before her own.”
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 and original series stars Beals, Moennig and Hailey.
