“The L Word” Will Continue Online and in a Possible Spin-off

“Ilene and I have always tried to find a way to bring me back into the fold,” said Manheim, “and if she can figure it out in the spin-off, I’d do it in a heartbeat. I love Vancouver. I bought an apartment there when I was doing The L Word, and I’m looking for a reason to spend some time there, so I’d love to [go back].”

In terms of the final season’s “mystery element,” Greenblatt would not elaborate other than to confirm that “there’s a mystery.”

He explained: “I don’t mean to be keeping coy, but we’re trying to keep it very close to the vest. And you know, unfortunately everybody tries to get these scripts and they go online, and all the surprises are blown to the viewers. So we’re just being very tight-lipped about it. In fact, there’s things we’re not even telling the actors.”

When asked how she feels about The L Word ending, Manheim said: “I don’t know what all the reasons are for. I thought it was a really important show on so many levels. I’m so grateful that it existed and was there for people to see themselves on television. It’s always important to have role models on TV … because then you feel like you’re living in the real world. So it was a really incredibly important show. I’m glad to hear there’s going to be a spin-off.”
