Everyone’s talking about… Looking

The HBO series has been cancelled after two seasons. The critically acclaimed programme, which aired here on Sky Atlantic, followed a group of gay men in San Francisco and built up a small, but passionate fanbase during its run.

Yesterday, HBO announced that they would not be ordering any further seasons of the series, but explained that a cliffhanger at the end of the season finale would be wrapped up in a special episode.

The show’s creator had this to say.
