Earlier this year we posted episodes from the fun new web series Stray, which is about a straight guy and a gay guy, and their developing roommate bromance. Now the show is plotting its return for season 2, but in order to get it made, it’s hoping to raise $15,000 via Seed & Spark.
The first season concentrated almost exclusively on the straight Rich and the gay Jay, as they negotiated their fledgling friendship, from Rich getting a little too personal as he tries to find out about all things gay, to disussing the relative merits of Tinder and Grindr. We’re promised that ‘In Season 2, Rich and Jay’s world expands, introducing new friends and love interests, including “Brock,” Rich’s homophobic “friend”; “Marquis,” a holier-than-thou thespian; “Autumn,” a sadistic world-saver; and “Luna,” an unfiltered jocknerd.
‘Season 2 will contain 10 five-to-12-minute episodes, including a short-form adaptation of the 1980s comedy Clue, a Freaky Friday-esque episode in which Rich and Jay switch orientations; and an episode that deconstructs the ending of 500 Days of Summer which includes, if we hit our stretch goals, a protracted, Family Guy-style non-sequitur of a fight sequence.’
There are some fun added incentives for those who back the fundraising campaign, from personalised magic tricks to the chance to write your own Stray mini-episode.
