The original show had as many fans as detractors, as it often looked a little cheap, the acting could be ropey (although it did features gay film stalwart Charlie David, Babylon 5 and The Colby’s Tracy Scoggins and in its early episodes a pre-Arrow Stephen Amell), and the plots were sometimes so odd they verged towards being incomprehensible. However the supernatural gay soap was also oddly mesmeric, difficult to stop watching and often a lot of fun – and it was also pretty damn sexy. As a result it has quite a cult following.
The planned new season, ‘Is set several years after the conclusion of Season 3. Still reeling from the dark apocalypse that nearly destroyed the island, hidden secrets and new rivalries linger and loom for the island’s sexy new residents. Fans of previous Dante’s Cove seasons will be delighted by the return of director Sam Irvin, who is poised to deliver the type of sexy supernatural drama you’ve come to expect from Dante’s Cove. Key characters will return and new characters will light up the Cove with fire and passion.
‘The young hero of Season 4 discovers emerging desires and powers that lead toward danger; powers the likes of which haven’t been seen in generations. Meanwhile, a global conspiracy awakens and casts new dramatic light on disturbances in Dante’s Cove. Unknown alliances will be revealed. New powers will manifest. Murder, betrayal, adventure, and unrelenting passion will seduce you like an ex lover you can’t resist.’
That doesn’t tell us too many specifics, but does suggest Dante’s Cove will be as crazy as ever, with plenty more supernatural nuttiness and men who find it difficult to keep their clothes on.
