The L Word: Generation Q will not get a season 4Showtime

Showtime's The L Word: Generation Q isn't returning for a fourth season.

Just two months on from the drama's season 3 finale, Deadline reports that the US network has decided not to renew Generation Q, yet an offshoot under the working title The L Word: New York is now in development.

In the LA-based series, fans were invited into the tangled lives of Bette Porter-Kennard (played by Jennifer Beals), Alice Pieszecki (Leisha Hailey), Shane McCutcheon (Kate Moennig), Dani Nùñez (Arienne Mandi), Micah Lee (Leo Sheng), Finley (Jacqueline Toboni), Sophie Suarez (Rosanny Zayas) and Gigi Ghorbani (Sepideh Moafi) as they experienced love, heartbreak, sex and success.

We're only three months into 2023, but the TV junkyard is already filling up with fresh castaways.

This includes Snowpiercer, One of Us is Lying, 1899, Inside Job, Uncoupled and Al Pacino's Nazi-fighting series Hunters.

Addressing the surprising fate of Jennifer Connelly and Sean Bean's dystopian drama, a TNT spokesperson told Entertainment Weekly back in January: "We can confirm that TNT will not air season four of Snowpiercer.

"This was a difficult decision, but our admiration for the talented writers, actors and crew who brought Snowpiercer's extraordinary post-apocalyptic world to life remains strong.

"We have been working collaboratively with the producers since last year to help the series find a new home where fans can continue to enjoy the compelling story and exceptional visual experience. We look forward to working with them on future projects."

All is not lost, though, as production house Tomorrow Studios went on to reveal: "We love Snowpiercer and believe season 4 completes a story with incredible talent that will entertain viewers while exploring issues of climate change and class warfare.

"We are so passionate about this series that we have acquired the rights to control the franchise. We hope to find the perfect partner shortly and finish a great ride with the final season."
