Looking canceled by HBO

Posted on

After just one more episode, Looking will no longer be found on HBO. 

The premium cable network has decided to end the series about a group of gay friends living in San Francisco. The show will be wrapped up with a special episode. 

HBO gave this statement: “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.”

The move marks a rare early-run cancelation by HBO, which often lets modestly performing titles continue for years. Looking ran for two seasons and 18 episodes, with its second-season finale airing Sunday night. No word yet from HBO when the special will air, or whether it will be longer than the show’s usual 30-minute running time.
