We’re not crying you are…

The L Word: Generation Q has been cut. Yes in a continuation of the “Cancel Your Gays” trend, it seems that nothing is sacred, not even sapphic royalty like The L Word. There is a glimmer of hope: the potential promise of a New York-based reboot, with original writer and producer Ilene Chaiken, bringing us a whole new flavour of dyke to obsess over. As exciting as this is, Gen Q’s cancellation still means we are saying goodbye to many beloved characters, some that first appeared on our screens 20 years ago.
The cast of the show are clearly devastated by it being axed and have been sharing heartfelt messages and pictures from behind the scenes, all over social media.
Jacqueline Toboni, who played chaotic, butch, golden retriever Finley, shared several posts on Instagram:
Rosanny Zayas, who plays Sophie, also posted on Instagram saying, “Nothing but love, respect and absolute gratitude. Thank you.”
Jordan Hull, Bette and Tina’s daughter Angie, posted: “I have so many photos and memories from this show that will stay with me for the rest of my life. Shown and not shown. Endless love for the family I’ve made on this show. I’m the luckiest queer in the world to be raised by a bunch of queer superstars. Thank you ❤️”
Arienne Mandi, AKA Dani Núñez, shared multiple posts saying: “I love you all #tlwgenerationq” and “Thank you for everything”.
