“Dante’s Cove” Could Be Returning For Another Sexy, Campy Season

The last episode of the series aired over a decade ago.

Gay supernatural soap opera Dante’s Cove could be coming back for an all-new season.

The series, which ran for three seasons from 2005 to 2007, was one of the earliest TV shows to explicitly depict LGBT sex and love without shame. It was campy, thrilling and no doubt inspired many a young gay kid’s first forays into queer fantasy.

Now, cable network Here TV has launched a Kickstarter campaign to revive the groundbreaking drama for a titillating fourth season. According to the page, the script for the six-episode season has been written and a hot new cast of actors has been cast, now all that’s left to do is raise the funds to make it happen.

“So many LGBT projects had a lot of political statements that they were trying to make and this was something that was going to be pure entertainment,” director Sam Irvin had to say of the original series.

Dante’s Cove: The Next Generation is going to continue all of the elements you loved and adored from the original,” he continued. “Our cast of characters, you’re going to fall in love with them, the story lines are so exciting.”

According to Irvin, Here needs $300,000 to make the reboot, or $50,000 per episode. As the campaign is a Kickstarter, there are a number of prizes involved, including advanced scripts for $10, a t-shirt for $50 and even a featured spot on an episode for $3,500.
