After a rocky start, “Looking,” a comedy-drama about a group of friends living in San Francisco, finally seemed to find its footing in the last few episodes of its debut season. And while its future appeared bleak for a while, HBO eventually made the decision to give the show another shot, picking it up for a second, 10-episode season.
Created by Michael Lannan, “Looking” stars Jonathan Groff as Patrick, an almost-30 gay man trying to get his act together both professionally and in his personal life. Frankie J. Álvarez, Murray Bartlett, Raul Castillo, Lauren Weedman and Russell Tovey also star as Patrick’s friends (and love interests).
As the trailer shows, Season 2 picks up where the first left off, shortly after Patrick and his boyfriend Richie (Casitllo) break up. We also get glimpses at the tense relationship between restauranteur Dom (Barlett) and his business partner (Scott Bakula), a seemingly less antagonistic Agustin and, in a much-desired move, it seems like Doris (Weedman) will have a storyline of her own.
Season 2 of “Looking” is set to premiere on HBO January 11, 2015.
