Queer Beats – August 27, 2021

Queer Beats with Nikki Header

Welcome back to Queer Beats, your weekly one-stop shop for queer television news! This week, many of our favorite queer TV shows geared up to return, but a few announced cancellations.

American Horror Story: Double Feature

The new season of AHS (aka “AHS: P-town” in the LWTV slack) has released its first trailer!

Betty

I’m devastated. Are you devastated? This show was so unique and cool and I hate that we won’t get to follow these characters for another season.

The Baby-Sitters Club

The Baby-Sitters Club is coming back this fall!

Brooklyn Nine-Nine

Stephanie Beatriz had her baby and I love that there seems to be a small connection between the baby’s name and her iconic B99 character.

Catwoman: Haunted

Looks like we are going to get another version of Batwoman, voiced by none other than Stephanie Beatriz!

Feel Good

These two (Mae Martin and Elliot Page) are apparently very close now and it just feels right.

The L Word: Generation Q

Let’s start with the OGs. Kate Moennig posted a behind-the-scenes video of the new poker game at Dana’s.

Jacqueline Toboni spoke about Finley’s current relationship drama…

But in real life, she’s killing it! She got engaged this past week.

Finally, we can’t forget about Gigi. Sepideh Moafi knows that we are all obsessed with her…

Motherland: Fort Salem

The good news? We are getting another season of MFH. The bad news? It will be the final season. *eye roll*

To cheer us up, we got a behind-the-scenes video of the cast being cute and having a dance party.

Never Have I Ever was renewed for another season!

One Day At A Time

I miss ODAAT so much and it was so fun to see Isabella Gomez discuss Sydlena again.

The Owl House

Okay, I’ve been in love with Mae Whitman since I was 10 years old so IMAGINE MY EXCITEMENT when she came out as pan. Congrats, Mae!

Punky Brewster

The Punky Brewster reboot has sadly already been cancelled.

Queer As Folk

The Queer As Folk reboot just added nonbinary actor, Jesse James Keitel, to the cast lineup.

Supergirl

Apparently, Alex and Lena will be spending more time together this season…

Unconventional

Kit Williamson is developing a new series with lots of queer actors, including Briana Venskus and Aubrey Peeples.

Westworld

A new season of Westworld is coming and, although I don’t watch this show, I do appreciate a good picture of Tessa Thompson.

The Wilds

Mia Healey and Erana James went on a very cute non-date date.

Wynonna Earp

Dom‘s pride in their identity will never get old for me.

Y: The Last Man

This upcoming series, based on a comic series, will include multiple queer characters.

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

About NikkiT

Nikki has always known two contradictory things to be true: queer TV can save lives and Emma and Nico on Vida are the most underrated wlw couple out there. Her first dive into fan content was when she ran a secret Xanga blog dedicated to pictures of Lorelai Gilmore in the 7th grade. She has never looked back.
