Showtime has announced that The Real L Word has been renewed for a third season of nine episodes. The show, which had been solely based in Los Angeles, will be adding New York to its repertoire when it starts production again next year. The Real L Word aired its second season finale this past August.
Created as a sort-of spin-off to The L Word, The Real L Word follows a group of lesbians in Los Angeles as they tackle many of the same problems their fictional counterparts did. The show underwent a massive cast overhaul following season one, only retaining Romi and Whitney, and casting is currently underway for season three. It’s unclear which women from season two (Francine, Kacy, Sajdah, Romi, Cory, Whitney, and Claire) will be kept on the show going forward, however.
Do you think The Real L Word has been a reasonable replacement for The L Word? Who has been your favorite cast member thus far? What do you hope changes between season two and season three?
