Showtime has picked up the second season of Ilene Chaiken's The Real L Word: Los Angeles.

The show, which follows the lives of six lesbians living in Los Angeles, is the reality series version of Chaiken's groundbreaking drama The L Word, which ran for six seasons on Showtime and starred Jennifer Beals.

“I'm thrilled and truly excited by the support from Showtime and their desire to really bust it out in the second season,” Chaiken said in a statement. “We're looking to tell deeper stories about some of the cast members whom we got to know in season one, and to meet some new women whose lives reflect additional facets of lesbian life and experience.”

Season two will consist of nine episodes and production will begin later this year.

The Real L Word: Los Angeles might be just another piece of Chaiken's L Word empire. Last year, she hinted that she was in the process of penning an L Word movie. But Chaiken's L Word spinoff, The Farm, which takes place in a women's prison, was passed over by Showtime execs.
