With the news that Showtime is working on an update of The L Word, we immediately started brainstorming where this show could go. After careful consideration, here are our top six dream scenarios for the new Word.

Bette breaks up with Tina!
This rollercoaster of a relationship got old. We’d like to see them make a clean break and have Bette focus on her career. Speaking of…

Bette gets a job in politics!
She was always passionate about social issues so it seems like the perfect segue for her to move into the political world. Bette Porter in 2020!!!

Jenny is alive!
Let’s face it: The L Word isn’t really The L Word without the show’s polarizing princess, Jenny Schecter (Mia Kirshner). We agree with the cast’s plea to forget season 6 and keep Jenny amongst the living.

Alice becomes a social media mogul!
At this point, we’re betting she’s turned The Chart into a dating app à la Bumble or Tinder and is def working in an open floor plan with bean bag chairs and themed conference rooms.

Shane starts her own line of hair care products
…or maybe skinny jeans. We’re still deciding between these options.

The actress played the mother of Helena Peabody (Rachel Shelley) and we just want her back. Kthnx.
