HBO has cancelled their half-hour series Looking following its second season finale, but will afford the creators an opportunity to wrap up their storylines with a special, Variety is reporting.
Among one of the premiere cable channels, HBO has been known for a number of series over the years, from The Sopranos and Six Feet Under to Game of Thrones and The Leftovers. Among that group are two half-hour shows, Girls and Looking. The latter was created by Michael Lannan and executive produced by Weekend filmmaker Andrew Haigh, and focused on a trio of gay friends living in modern-day San Francisco, and their daily trials and tribulations. It starred Jonathan Groff, Murray Bartlett, and Frankie J. Alvarez, and featured both Daniel Franzese and Scott Bakula in recurring roles over the course of its two seasons.
The show’s ratings were of some concern to HBO, and the second season finale, »

Looking starred Jonathan Groff as Patrick, with Murray Bartlett as Dom, Frankie J. Alvarez as Agustin, Lauren Weedman as Doris, Russell Tovey as Kevin and Raúl Castillo as Richie. The show lasted for 18 episodes over two seasons. Season two ended with Patrick moving in with Kevin only to find out Kevin wasn't quite ready to be in a monogamous relationship. Patrick took comfort in visiting his ex, Richie, and finally letting Richie cut his hair. "Yo @LookingHBO fans - rumors are true, we don't have a new season to report, but hey, we got a movie special to shoot instead! Cool huh?? X," Tovey tweeted. Scott Bakula, Mean Girls' Daniel Franzese and Julia Duffy recurred on the series. »
The second season of HBO's "Looking" came to dramatic end tonight and before we remark on where this episode leaves Patrick, Agustin and Dom, let's take a few minutes and review the entire season, shall we? After a bumpy, but often impressive first season, "Looking" returned in January with a strong season premiere ("Looking for the Promised Land") which found Patrick (Jonathan Groff) and Kevin (Russell Tovey) deeply involved in a discreet affair, Dom (Murray Bartlett) wondering if he'd become closer with his new boyfriend Lynn (Scott Bakula) and Agustin (Frankie J. Alvarez) trying to dig himself out of a his life hole with a slightly more positive demeanor (likely more thanks to viewer complaints than anything else). The big news was that the show runners had 10 1/2 hour episodes to tell their story versus just eight the prior season. In theory, this meant they could spend more time fleshing out »

Full disclosure: Until last weekend, we actually didn’t know that HBO hadn’t already renewed Looking for a third season. Girls and Togetherness both got picked up, and it seemed like such a no-brainer that Looking would too. It’s so good, why would it not be?
But this Sunday is the season finale and we’ve yet to hear of its fate beyond that. This morning, creator Michael Lannan captioned a Bts photo, “Shooting the S3 finale back in November.” He quickly caught his mistake and tweeted:
Wait I meant @LookingHBO S2 finale! Getting ahead of myself ;)
— Michael Lannan (@MichaelLannan) March 20, 2015
Does that winky face emoticon mean he knows something we don’t? Or are we reading too much into this, because the thought of a world without Looking is a cruel place we don’t want to live?

From the Laid to Rest films to Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Thomas Dekker has played a plethora of memorable roles in the horror and sci-fi genres. His performance in Robert Hall’s Fear Clinic is no exception—in his third collaboration with director Hall, Dekker turns in a fascinating performance as Blake, a young man suffering from brain damage and Ptsd after surviving a madman’s public shooting spree.
With Fear Clinic now available on Blu-ray and DVD from Anchor Bay, we caught up with the Dekker to discuss bringing Blake to life in non-vocal ways, his character’s chilling backstory, working with the legendary Robert Englund, facing his own fear during filming, and much more.

The weekend is chalk full of new Specialty releases, though most will likely be low performers in terms of dollars at the box office. Entertainment One is opening Nicolas Cage and Hayden Christensen starrer Outcast with limited runs and will likely find tepid returns at the theatrical box office, though it may shine in the digital/on-demand space where it will also bow this weekend. Documentary Ballet 422 (Magnolia Pictures), meanwhile, has had solid buzz heading into the weekend and should score well in its niche market. Monterey Media is hoping to have traction with stars Wes Bentley, Vincent Piazza and Amber Tamblyn as it opens 3 Nights In The Desert in theaters and on-demand, while Freestyle Releasing is targeting the rom-com crowd for its debut, One Small Hitch. Other Specialty openers this weekend include First Run Features’ doc The Other Man: F.W. de Klerk And The End Of Apartheid In South Africa, »
