Showtime Orders Third Season Of 'Real L Word'

Publish date:

Showtime has renewed reality series, The Real L Word, for a third season.

During the upcoming season, The Real L Word will expand to New York, while also remaining in Los Angeles, including the return of some "fan favorite" cast members from previous seasons. The first two seasons focused exclusively on LA's lesbian community. Aside from a few returners, the new season will feature new casts in both Los Angeles and New York.

"We're excited and gratified to be picking up the stories of our most beloved season two cast members at some truly major and life-altering junctures, and we think it's time to throw down and invite the women of New York to join in and demonstrate the claims they've lobbed at us these past few years," said creator and executive producer Ilene Chaiken. "New York's women have something more to say about lesbian life, something that isn't being said by our Los Angeles ladies."

The Real L Word is created and executive produced by Chaiken and fellow executive producers Dan Cutforth and Jane Lipsitz of Magical Elves, and follows a group of high-profile lesbians as they navigate their daily lives.
