Bette, Shane and Alice are back - and so is the 2000's nostalgia.

According to the official description for Showtime's The L Word reboot, Jennifer Beals, Katherine Moennig, and Leisha Hailey will reprise their iconic characters - starring alongside “a new generation of self-possessed LGBTQIA characters experiencing love, heartbreak, sex, setbacks and success in Los Angeles.”

Showtime dropped the first trailer for The L Word: Generation Q this morning and die-hard fans of the trailblazing lesbian series are taking to social media to express their apprehension and excitement in equal measure.

As previously reported, the program's original showrunner Ilene Chaiken is on board to executive-produce the series revival, with Marja-Lewis Ryan stepping on board as showrunner.

Showtime President Gary Levine said he was excited about Ryan's vision for the beloved show.

“Marja has brought her unique and contemporary vision to The L Word and blended it beautifully into the fabric of Ilene’s groundbreaking series," he said.

"This revered show was both entertaining and impactful when it originally ran on Showtime, and we are confident that our new version will do that and more in 2019.”

The series will be released on December 8 on Showtime.
