Welcome back to Queer Beats, your weekly one-stop shop for queer television news! This week, Brooklyn Nine-Nine celebrated a new season pickup, we were blessed with ThunderGrace content, and Elena Alvarez officially returned to us!
Today on shows-that-aren’t-gay-yet, A League Of Their own added two more members to their cast!
Brig is just out here trying to kill us all:
The Beverly Hills, 90210 revival was sadly cancelled last week:
Nafessa worked hard to give us that sweet behind-the-scenes ThunderGrace content:
Also, try not to cry at this video of Nafessa with a baby Thunder (for the record, I failed and definitely did cry).
NINE-NINE! Brooklyn Nine-Nine got picked up for another season and, no, you’re not going crazy, season 7 has not even been released yet!
The cast celebrated the good news:
Never thought I would say this but Channel 4 announced that there will be a holiday-time crossover between Derry Girls and the Great British Bake Off. It will be called the “Great Festive Bake Off” and, as a massive fan of both shows, I am VERY EXCITED!
Hailee Steinfeld spoke with the Hollywood Reporter about our new favorite AppleTV+ show, Dickinson:
I have never watched a single episode of Gossip Girl in my life but I am suddenly very, very interested…
The L Word: Generation Q
Today on characters-that-aren’t-gay-yet, Maisie posted this cute picture of Charlie and reminded me of how much I love her.
The Alvarezes were reunited this week and began filming the new season of ODAAT:
The women of RED were spotted spending some quality time together this week:
And soon, we will get to spend some quality time with them at QFX East!
Nicole Maines teamed up with GLAAD to help share trans love stories:
She also played Would You Rather with TV Guide (and gave a shoutout to one of our favorite The 100 characters):
And that’s it for Queer Beats this week! Always thorough, always professional, never random.
