In sad news for LGBT-inclusive television, the much talked about series Looking has been canceled. After just two seasons, the adventures of Patrick and his friends in San Francisco will come to a close—but HBO has promised that they won’t leave any loose ends.
According to Variety, HBO said in a 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.”
A date has not yet been announced for the finale, but creator Michael Lannan confirmed in a Twitter post that the series would be concluded with a movie:
Yes it’s true, we’ll be doing a movie instead of a third season. Thanks for all the love and support! Final chapter yet to come…

The series starred Johnathan Groff, Frankie Alvarez, Russell Tovey, Murray Bartlett, Lauren Weedman, and Raul Castillo. Tovey was recently in the news for his comments about being grateful that he isn’t effeminate, which he later apologized for.
