Yes, it is happening again, although a certain, long-awaited L Word movie isn't the reason that brings them together.
Showtime's groundbreaking lesbian drama The L Word, which chronicled the lives of a group of Los Angeles gay women, may have wrapped its sixth and last season a little over two years ago, but more new fans are coming on board as they merely learn about the show as we speak. The L Word fan base keeps growing without a doubt, even though the actors have moved on to various new projects. And the show's fan site, L-word.com, does a great job in keeping the fans constantly updated with the latest news.
So, why are the actors getting back together? Just the other day, Marlee Matlin tweeted: "A great L Word gathering today! Kate, Leisha, Jennifer, Laurel, Eric Mabius, Ilene C. & me together to be featured on upcoming DVD box set!" And then, she added: "And I forgot, Erin Daniels (Dana) was also there at the L Word reunion today! Everyone looked so good!"
Basically, some of the main cast including Jennifer Beals, Laurel Holloman, Kate Moennig, Leisha Hailey, Erin Daniels, Eric Mabius and Marlee Matlin along with the creator and executive producer of the show Ilene Chaiken will be part of lots of extras on the new The L Word box set, to be released in November. Coincidently, the UK promoter Starfury is organizing the ninth L Word event around the same time.
Will the extras include bloopers and deleted scenes from the show or more behind the scenes footage? Will the show stars just contemplate the past or will they give a glimpse into the future of a potential L Word movie? That remains to be seen.
Chaiken brought on the silver screen the unforgettable Bette and Tina couple, amazingly portrayed by two incredible actresses, Jennifer Beals and Laurel Holloman. She's been criticized though for the way she wrote some of the characters as well as the show's end.
Let's just hope she's still not ready to say good-bye to this unique experience that made The L Word a phenomenon and built bridges between fans around the world.
