A crowdfunding campaign to produce a fourth season of the gay murder mystery web series Where The Bears Are launched on Monday.

In its first day, the campaign attracted 149 backers who donated more than $16,000 toward the campaign's $150,000 goal.

The comedy series, which combines a murder mystery plot and lots of large furry men, centers around roommates Reggie (played by Rick Copp), Wood (Joe Dietl) and Nelson (Ben Zook) and Nelson's boyfriend Hot Toddy (Ian Parks).

The show's third season ended with Todd planning to propose marriage to Nelson.

In their Kickstarter campaign, producers describe the upcoming season as thrusting the gang "into yet another thrilling murder mystery surrounding the upcoming nuptials of everyone's favorite bear couple, Nelson and Todd!"

"At the same time, Reggie's true crime TV show becomes a hit on the Inquisitive Channel and sparks begin to fly because of his new co-stars Det. Chad Winters and Captain Coley. Meanwhile, Wood decides to start his own swimwear line called 'Sporting Wood' with sidekick George Ridgemont which provides them the opportunity to audition, dress and photograph hot bear models for a living!" the description continues.

Campaign rewards include walk-on and guest roles in the fourth season.
