It’s been one week since the first episode of The L Word: Generation Q aired (in the US, sorry UK fans) after 10 whole years of anticipation. Ever since the sequel was confirmed, there’s been just one question we needed answering: who killed Jenny Schecter?
The L Word: Generation Q sees the return of Jennifer Beals (Bette), Katherine Moennig (Shane) and Leisha Hailey (Alice), but it was no surprise that Mia Kirshner (Jenny) wouldn’t return for the sequel.
If you’re completely out of the loop, let’s just explain the basics first.
The original series finale showed each of the characters being questioned about the murder of Jenny, who was found dead in Bette and Tina’s pool. Like any great storyline, they all had a motive behind murdering Jenny. Of course, we were then all left hanging with so many loose ends never tied up.
Now a whole decade later, The L Word: Generation Q has finally revealed who killed Jenny Schecter. We won’t reveal any spoilers here, but Mia took to Twitter to express her views about the storyline.
Nope. Jenny is not dead. That’s not the story that needs to be told about a survivor of sexual violence. It’s not a story that can be wrapped up and tied up with a bow. So no, she is not dead.— Mia Kirshner (@msmiakirshner) December 16, 2019
Would you like to know what really happened to Jenny?— Mia Kirshner (@msmiakirshner) December 16, 2019
Mia wrote: “Nope. Jenny is not dead. That’s not the story that needs to be told about a survivor of sexual violence. It’s not a story that can be wrapped up and tied up with a bow. So no, she is not dead.”
Very cryptically, she then went on to say: “Would you like to know what really happened to Jenny?”
She also said that she “feels sick” that this is how they dismissed the story about a survivor of sexual assault.
At the time of writing, the rest of the Generation Q cast have not commented publicly on Mia’s reaction.
The L Word: Generation Q is due to hit UK screens early 2020 on Sky Atlantic
