Season 3 of ‘Eastsiders’ is in the works
The other day I was talking to Beth, one of my BFFs, and she excitedly told me that she and her wife had discovered Eastsiders on Netflix and were hooked.
I was so glad to hear that this terrific series is still gaining new fans now that it can be streamed.
I just love Eastsiders which stars Van Hansis, Kit Williamson, Constance Wu, John Halbach and Stephen Guarino, among others.
It takes place in Silver Lake, the Los Angeles community in which I live, and centers around a gay couple thom and Cal played by Hansis and series creator, writer and director Williamson.
Kit and Van are currently on the cover of Frontiers Magazine and in the article, Kit shares that he is currently writing season three of the show.
He says the next season will resemble the more intimate nature of season one.
‘I want to go back to the original focus on Cal and Thom because I think there’s a lot to explore there. We expanded the show in its second season – which was great, and we featured a lot of amazing actors – but I think the core of the series is these two men.’
He adds: ‘I loved opening up this world. It gave us a lot of opportunities I didn’t think we’d ever have. And most of our favorite characters will return for the third season, I think.’
Williamson has written four episodes so far for the new season which has not yet been funded. Crowdfunding was successfully used to produce seasons one and two.
The show’s second season earned an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Daytime Digital Drama series and Hansis also earned an Emmy nomination.
He had previously been nominated three times for his performance as Luke Snyder on the now-canceled soap opera As the World Turns.
