I am absolutely gutted! It was just revealed that Looking – one of my favorite shows currently on television – will not be renewed for a third season. Along with being absolutely devastated (and I’m not even saying this to be melodramatic), I am genuinely surprised, because I had no idea that the show had been struggling so much rating-wise. Evidently, it had been pulling in only 200,00 viewers each week. Rough.
Slight consolation, though… HBO will apparently be tying it up with a movie, so that fans aren’t left completely without closure, especially after the season two finale ambiguity.
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.
Ugh, I so cannot with HBO right now. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll be waiting for the movie with bated breath, but I’d have much rather have further seasons of the show. I’ll console myself in the meantime by working on a GIF-filled recap of the second season. Coming soon…
