What’s Streaming on Showtime in December 2019? A Sequel to ‘The L Word’ and a Best Picture Winner

Still stuck on your couch in a post-Thanksgiving food coma? There’s no shame in that. While some people are hitting the Black Friday sales or decking the halls for the coming Christmas holiday, others are using the long weekend to catch up on some must-see TV and movies. Thankfully, if your idea of a good time involves curling up in your pajamas, remote in hand, Showtime is here to support you. The premium cable channel is adding a ton of new movies and shows in December 2019, including these highlights. 

‘The L Word: Generation Q’ premieres  

This month, Showtime is unveiling the sequel to The L Word, which aired from 2004 to 2009. The original show broke new ground with its focus on the lives of lesbian characters. Several familiar faces, including Jennifer Beal, Leisha Hailey, and Katherine Moenning are returning for the new iteration, which also stars Arienne Mandi, Leo Sheng, Jacqueline Toboni, Rosanny Zayas, and Sepideh Moafi. It premieres Sunday, December 8 at 10/9c. 

After the series premiere of The L Word: Generation Q, Showtime will air the first episode of Work In Progress. The 30-minute Chicago-set comedy series stars Abby McEnany as “a 45 year-old self-identified fat, queer dyke whose misfortune and despair unexpectedly lead her to a vibrantly transformative relationship.” It premieres at 11/10c. 

Stream 2019’s Best Picture winner ‘Green Book’

Green Book was a divisive pick for the Best Picture honor at 2019 Oscars. Some thought the movie about a black musician and his white driver traveling through the segregation-era South was a safe choice that took a glib approach to dealing with racism. But Academy voters clearly saw something to love in the film, which stars Mahershala Ali and Viggo Mortensen. You can judge for yourself when Green Book arrives on Showtime on December 14.   

Also new to Showtime in December is At Eternity’s Gate. This biographical drama about Vincent Van Gogh earned Willem Dafoe his second-consecutive Oscar nomination for acting. (He was also nominated for The Florida Project.) It’s streaming from December 5.
