Other characters from the original series may also make appearances alongside a whole new cast of women, according to reports.

The L Word debuted in 2004, following the lives of a small, close-knit group of lesbians living in Los Angeles. The show ran for six seasons until 2009.

The new series is reportedly in development at US network Showtime.

Speaking about a potential revival of the series earlier this year, Ilene Chaiken said she believed the show “should come back.”

“We talk about it all the time,” she told Entertainment Weekly.

“When we went off the air in 2009, I think a lot of people thought, okay, the baton is passed now, and there will be lots of shows that portray lesbian life.

“There’s really nothing. It feels like maybe it should come back.”
