HBO has cancelled its contemporary gay drama series “Looking” after two seasons.
This past weekend’s second season finale didn’t offer closure, so the network has announced that a special will be made which will wrap up the storyline.
Spanning eighteen half-hour episodes, the series followed a group of gay friends living in San Francisco. Though an ensemble piece, Jonathan Groff and Russell Tovey’s storyline has emerged as the show’s main attraction.
Despite good notices, the series has been performing badly leaving HBO with little choice but to pull it. Frankie J. Alvarez, Murray Bartlett, Lauren Weedman and Raul Castillo also starred in the series.
In a statement, HBO says: “After two years of following Patrick and his tight-knit group of friends as they explored San Francisco in search of love and lasting relationships, HBO will present the final chapter of their journey as a special. We look forward to sharing this adventure with the shows loyal fans.”
