Welcome back to Queer Beats, your weekly one-stop shop for queer television news! This week, we found out that Angelica Ross will be hosting a presidential forum (thank god!), The Fosters will be getting back together, and ODAAT proved the haters wrong.
BIFL: The Series
Have you been itching to finally see BIFL The Series? If you are in the Chicago area, you can go watch all the episodes at Reeling Fest, a LBGTQ+ film festival!
We are getting so close to the Black Lightning premiere! In the meantime, Chantal has continued to give us some behind-the-scenes ThunderGrace content:
I never even seen The Fosters but, as a diehard Good Trouble fan, this news is still very exciting:
The L Word: Generation Q
This new trailer for The L Word reboot got me really amped but being reminded that the premiere date is still so far away brought me back down.
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
Jane Lynch recently won an Emmy for her guest role on Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and, in an interview this week, she dropped some info about an in-development TV show that will star her and Cyndi Lauper. Can’t wait to hear more about that!
One Day at a Time
Here’s to all the haters (aka Netflix)! One Day At A Time won an Emmy this week, despite the fact that it had been cancelled by Netflix earlier this year. Don’t forget to continue following the show in its new journey with PopTV!
This news about Angelica Ross hosting a presidential forum specifically about LBGTQ issues is truly music to my ears.
While we are on the topic of Pose, the show won a lot of Autostraddle awards this week! Make sure to check out all the other winners as well:
Can’t deal with the cliffhanger at the end of season 5 of RED? Don’t worry, production is underway for season 6 and it will start off right where the last season left off!
QFX announced this week that three members of the Runaways cast will be joining their convention in May: Lyrica Okano, Ariela Barer, and Clarissa Thibeaux.
Deleted scenes from the last season of Supergirl were released this week and included was an Alex/Kelly hospital scene that was cut. Not sure why the show actively chooses to give us less queer content but alas! At least we see it now!
There is also a lengthy gag reel which includes funny moments from all our faves:
Take My Wife
We all miss Take My Wife and this article doesn’t make it any easier but Cameron Esposito‘s thoughts on her divorce is definitely worth a read:
Mishel Prada was featured in PAPER magazine this week and, if you think I will ever tire of seeing new pictures of Mishel, you are very wrong.
Work in Progress
Another queer show! Hooray! Showtime gave this new series, created by Abby McEnany and executive produced by Lily Wachowski, a series order and I can’t wait to see more unique queer rep on my tv.
I feel like we have waited years for our Wynonna Earp Pops but we are finally getting closer:
And that’s it for Queer Beats this week! Always thorough, always professional, never random.
