The creator of Looking has discussed the chances of the show returning for a second season.
The comedy-drama starring Jonathan Groff, Murray Bartlett and Frankie J Alvarez launched on US network HBO in January and is now six episodes into its eight-episode run. In the UK, Looking is being shown on Sky Atlantic.
Asked about a second season by Gay Star News on Tuesday (February 18), the show’s creator Mike Lannan replied: “I’m really hopeful. HBO has been really supportive of the show from the beginning and they’ve been really proud of it.”
Continuing, Lannan admitted that he and the creative team have already begun to devise possible storylines for a second season. “We’re thinking about it in preparation of getting picked up but we can’t really work on it until we get that signal [from HBO],” he said, before adding: “It could be any time – it could be in the next few weeks.”
