Plot Synopsis

THE L WORD: GENERATION Q is a one-hour series that continues to follow the intermingled lives of three characters from THE L WORD -- Bette Porter, Alice Pieszecki & Shane McCutcheon -- along with new characters -- PR exec Dani Nunez, her girlfriend and TV producer Sophie Suarez, their best friend and roommate Micah Lee & former Olympic swimmer (Sarah) Finley -- as they experience love, heartbreak, sex, setbacks and success in Los Angeles. Ten years after THE L WORD ended, viewers find Bette running for mayor of Los Angeles; Shane as she returns to the city after a setback; and Alice learning to balance co-parenting with her fiancee Nat and Nat's ex-wife Gigi and the rising success of her talk show. Bette weathers continued fallout as she prepares for an LGBTQIA Center talk. Meanwhile, Shane helps Finley, while Alice is annoyed when the network forces her to bring on a new staff member. Dani and Sophie celebrate good news as Dani begins a new job. Micah pursues a new crush.
On Sunday, January 26, 2020 at 10pm ET/PT, Showtime premiered "Lapse in Judgement," the Season 1 finale of THE L WORD: GENERATION Q. Tensions run high on election night as Bette and Dani await the results, Shane and Quiara go through their most difficult challenge yet, and Alice takes a big swing on her show. Meanwhile, Sophie and Dani consider another big step in their relationship, Finley is forced to stop running from her past and confront her feelings, and Micah is dealt an unexpected bombshell about Jose.

Two weeks earlier -- on Monday, January 13 -- Showtime renewed THE L WORD: GENERATION Q for a second season.
