Queer Beats – August 9, 2019

Queer Beats with Nikki Header

Welcome back to Queer Beats, your weekly one-stop shop for queer television news! This week, we received news about multiple crossovers, The OA was cancelled, and The L Word reboot hit the TCAs.


We are inching closer to the Batwoman premiere (yay) so we are slowly getting more content.

We also got further confirmation that Kate will be openly gay and will also be Jewish (as in the comics)!

The Bold Type

Freeform was honored in Variety’s “Power of Young Hollywood” issue and some of favorite actors from The Bold Type and Grown-ish were featured:

Black Lightning

We finally got confirmation that Black Lightning will be included in the next crossover:

The show has started filming again which means set selfies!


The fandom has fallen head over heels for Rue and Jules and, personally, I have also fell head over heels for Zendaya and Hunter.

The L Word: Generation Q

Excited for The L Word reboot? Cast and crew were at the TCAs this week to talk more about where the new show is headed.

The OA

The OA was cancelled this week and fans were not happy with Netflix (as usual):

Orphan Black

My favorite topic: Orphan Black! EW released a preview of the new audio series and just hearing Tatiana Maslany‘s voice again was enough to make me cry tears of joy.


The Runaways cast announced a crossover with Cloak and Dagger in the next season!

Stranger Things

Maya Hawke spoke with Huffington Post about the process leading into Robin‘s coming out:


The fact that these women are this beautiful isn’t news but seeing these pictures affected me as if it was!

And that’s it for Queer Beats this week! Always thorough, always professional, never random.
