Well…it’s official, baby! Showtime has placed an 8-episode order for a revival of the lesbian-based drama.

Via THR:

Playwright and screenwriter Marja-Lewis Ryan will serve as showrunner and executive produce alongside original series creator Ilene Chaiken.

Stars Jennifer Beals (Bette), Katherine Moennig (Shane) and Leisha Hailey (Alice) are also on board to exec produce and will reprise their roles from the original series while also introducing a new ensemble of self-possessed LGBTQIA characters experiencing love, heartbreak, sex, setbacks and success on the east side of Los Angeles.

Jennifer Beals took to Instagram to share her excitement over the return of the show!

I loved this show and I will be on time when it returns – tentatively before the end of the year!

I hope Pam Grier reprises her role as well or at least makes a guest appearance.
