Welcome back to Queer Beats, your weekly one-stop shop for queer television news! This week, we all cried over Jane the Virgin, fangirled over Jamie Clayton, and celebrated Orange is the New Black’s final run.
It turns out that Amber Benson will be returning to Clexacon this year so, if you missed her last year, you have a second chance to see her!
We finally had to say goodbye to JtV this week and, I don’t know about you, but I was a mess. Our favorite queer couple each posted a tribute to their time on the show and their beloved characters:
The L Word: Generation Q
A few more casting announcements were made this week and they included a LezWatchTV favorite, Jamie Clayton! I’m personally very happy to see that the sequel is continuing to diversify its cast.
We have a premiere date for season 3 of the Runaways! I’m excited to see the crew get more used to their powers.
With OitNB ending, Netflix announced that they have launched an initiative to support criminal justice reform and immigrant rights… and it is named after Poussey. Cue the tears. This is such a great way to honor a character that so many people loved.
The cast also answered some tweets about the final season!
She-Ra is back TODAY! Watch this clip to get amped up or just jump right into the new season on Netflix!
And that’s it for Queer Beats this week! Always thorough, always professional, never random.
