Fans of gone-too-soon TV shows almost always hope for a movie to wrap things up, but almost never get one. HBO’s “Looking” is the rare exception to that rule, as the romantic dramedy created by Michael Lannan is set to receive a one-off special to conclude the series next month. Avail yourself of the trailer for “Looking: The Movie” below.
Andrew Haigh (“Weekend,” “45 Years”) is directing the special, which centers around the three gay men living in San Francisco at the heart of the series: Patrick (Jonathan Groff), Agustín (Frankie J. Alvarez) and Dom (Murray Bartlett). Haigh wrote five episodes of the show and directed 10.
The series ran for 18 episodes over two seasons, which aired between January 2014 and March 2015. It was met with favorable reviews but low ratings throughout, resulting in HBO’s decision not to renew the series for a third season. “Looking: The Movie” airs on Saturday, July 23.
