‘The L Word’ director hints at reboot of iconic lesbian series

It was the tweet heard ’round the lesbian world.

Over the weekend, out director Ilene Chaiken posted a cryptic tweet in which she tagged most of the cast members from her iconic Showtime series The L Word.

“So excited! Can’t wait…!” she shared.

Chaiken said she was interested in rebooting the groundbreaking series in a radio interview last year with Entertainment Weekly editor Henry Goldblatt.

“I would love to revisit the L Word,” Chaiken said. “We talk about it from time to time. I talk about it with some of my colleagues who were in the cast who would love to reboot it. I don’t know when. I’m busy and most of them are too, but I do still think that it’s a viable world in which to tell stories, and those characters are still beloved as far as I can tell.”

Kate Moennig (who played Shane McCutcheon) and Sarah Shahi (who played Carmen de la Pica Morales) both replied to Chaiken’s post with excited tweets of their own.
