We reported earlier this week that LeVar Burton, former host of the PBS show “Reading Rainbow” was looking to re-launch the show. This time he wanted to make a web series. He took his indea to kickstarter in hopes to raising $1 million dollars to get the web series up and rolling.

We’re glad to report that Burton not only hit the $1,000,000 mark, but his campaign is still going strong.

According to ABC News, in just 48 hours, the actor raised more than $2.5 million. The initial goal was $1 million by the end of June.

Congrats to Burton and all the kids who will get to experience “Reading Rainbow
