"THE L WORD REBOOT IS ON ITS WAY THIS IS NOT A GOD DAMN DRILL," exclaimed one excited fan.

While a second tweeted: "I can't believe the l word is actually coming back."

If you've never watched it, The L Word was based on a group of lesbians in West Hollywood, as well as their family, friends and their romances.

The show first aired way back in 2004, running for five years on Showtime, before ending in 2009. While it feels like yesterday, the last episode was over eight years ago! Feel old yet? I definitely do.
