The L Word: Actress Mia Kirshner Rejects Jenny Schecter’s “Suicide”

Mia Kirshner is Jenny Schecter in The L Word.

The L Word’ season 6 ended with a drama: Jenny’s death. Well, we didn’t know if she was dead? And then we didn’t know who killed her? And was it murder because it could have been suicide? Anyway, we didn’t know much except that she was lying in Bette and Tina’s pool.

Season 6 never existed for many of us, including actresses. I can barely remember what happened in that season.

The creation of the sequel ‘The L Word: Generation Q was the opportunity for the new team of authors to offer a first answer to this mysterious disappearance. It’s probably also an opportunity to put an end to this story.

So here we are again talking about the death of Jenny Schecter. But there’s one person who thinks Jenny isn’t dead, it’s Mia Kirshner, the actress who played the character.

For sure, Jenny will have given her a hard time, but Kirshner rejects the proposal of ‘The L Word: Generation Q’ mentioned in episode 2.

Indeed, in this second episode, we follow Bette on her journey to become mayor of Los Angeles and at one point, Bette shares with her staff that during the campaign it will come out that a friend “died by suicide” in her pool.

On the one hand, it is understandable that the season 6 events were taken into account by the showrunner Marja-Lewis Ryan and the team of 'The L Word: Generation Q.'

On the other hand, though, Kirshner believes that Jenny, a woman who has been sexually abused, deserves better. Can you blame her?

Beyond supporting LGBTQ rights, Mia Kirshner is a strong advocate for women’s rights. She spoke up about her history with sexual harassment at the height of the #MeToo movement.

On Twitter, Kirshner asked, “Would you like to know what actually happened to Jenny?” Fans got inspired and shared their own scenarios, and from my point of view, it’s the best way to say goodbye to Jenny.
