The Real L Word has been renewed for a third season. While the ladies of Los Angeles are back for more drama, it seems the series will expand to showcase women on the East Coast as well. Keep reading for more details.
The docu-reality series that follows the lives of lesbians in their personal and professional lives will air nine new episodes on Showtime in early 2012. The first two seasons centered on women in Los Angeles, but the third season will mix things up by featuring women from New York, as well, in order to depict the differing lifestyles on both coasts.
In a statement, creator and executive producer Ilene Chaiken said of the new season, “We’re excited and gratified to be picking up the stories of our most beloved season 2 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…that New York’s women have something more to say about lesbian life, something that isn’t being said by our Los Angeles ladies. Bring it on, Brooklyn!”
The Real L Word debuted on Showtime in June of 2010. Taking a cue from the successful fictional drama The L Word, the reality show followed six lesbians in their daily Angeleno lives. The second season began airing on April 25, 2011, adding new cast members.
In addition to the New York cast members, season 3 of The Real L Word is said to have big surprises and special guest star appearances.
