Real L Word’s third season will add New York City, cast members

Showtime has renewed its reality series The Real L Word for a third season, but will film in New York City, in addition to Los Angeles, and producers are searching for new cast members. That’s a shift from last season, which focused on Whitney Mixter.

The Magical Elves-produced show “will straddle both coasts” and highlight “contrasting styles of east coast and west coast lesbian life,” according to Showtime’s announcement, which said the new season “will introduce several new women from the vibrant New York scene while also featuring the return of key ‘fan favorite’ cast members.” The network said its “search for dynamic new cast members is expected to start soon.”
