Though it premiered only 11 days ago, lesbian drama “The L Word” has already received a renewal from Showtime for a second season.
The fastest pickup in the premium channel’s history, “Word” wowed Showtime entertainment president Robert Greenblatt by quadrupling the network’s primetime average rating in its first two episodes.
“With its provocative storytelling, rich character development, amazing cast and universal appeal, the decision to renew ‘Word’ was a no-brainer,” Greenblatt said in a statement.
Production will begin on the next 13 episodes in June. The first season also contained 13 episodes, including a two-hour pilot episode.
