Due to your tireless financial and vocal support, The Variants has reached and exceeded its last stretch goal, meaning we're filming 10 FULL EPISODES and have room left over to rent the equipment we need to bring you the best web show we can do. That's down to you, so again: thank you.
We won't lie -- it's been an exhausting experience. While we've been raising money for season 3, we've also been in development for season 3 -- writing and re-writing scripts, hosting table reads, lining up props, costumes, extras and locations. We wanted to turn the season around as fast as possible for you, our fans -- so we pressed on even when the fate of the show was uncertain.
And we were right to trust you guys. We love this show a lot, and it's incredibly gratifying to find out that you love it, too.
So, as feeble as the words are: Thank you. Thank you very much.
Just so you know, we're not sitting here partying. Curt Franklin and Chris Haley get into town Friday, and Friday night we have our last big table read before we start filming on Saturday. And then it's a straight blitz through the rest of the following week -- we're filming every scene, every line, all in one go so we can get the show edited and released on the weekly schedule we promised. We can't promise a solid release date yet, but we're aiming for end of summer.
And now to business: many backers have selected pledge levels that include DVDs as well as shirts and prints. We need your mailing address and your preferred shirt size. Let us know ASAP, so we can get them to you ASAP!

And one last time, from all of us: THANK YOU.
