HBO Renews Dramedy ‘Looking’ for Season 2

Looking” is no one-season stand for HBO. The pay cabler has renewed the dramedy about three gay friends in San Francisco for a sophomore year.

Looking” premiered last month to a small audience, but has grown its audience with each of its last three episodes. The pickup comes as HBO sorts out its comedy slate with a renewal last week for “Getting On,” and cancellations after maiden seasons for comedies “Hello Ladies” and “Family Tree.”

Actors Lauren Weedman, Raul Castillo and Russell Tovey have been upped to series regular status. Jonathan Groff, Frankie Alvarez and Murray Bartlett play the show’s core trio.

Series was created by Michael Lannan, who originally wrote it as a feature prospect. He exec produces with showrunner Andrew Haigh and Sarah Condon.

Production on the next batch of episodes is slated to begin later this year in San Francisco.
