'EastSiders' Engaged In Kickstarter Campaign For Season Two

"EastSiders," the critically acclaimed dark comedy that took the Internet by storm last year, is back -- and you may recognize a face or two among the new cast members.

Hailed by Entertainment Weekly as "funny and heartbreaking," the first season of "EastSiders" followed the experiences of a gay couple as they dealt with the aftermath of infidelity. The web series became so popular that it went on to debut as a feature film on Logo TV.

Among those joining the cast this season? None other than Willam Belli of "Drag Race" fame.

"I'm so excited to take the show back where it started: in the fans' hands, on Kickstarter," EastSiders creator Kit Williamson said in a statement. "This is a very unique moment in time where audiences have the power to say what kind of stories they want to see told. We've been so lucky to have found an amazing community of viewers that have been with us from day one, and continues to grow every day. I hope they want to see more from us, because I am so excited to continue telling this story.”
