Expect to see Patrick, Dom and Agustin back on screens next year as HBO’s freshman drama Looking has been given the green light to continue on with a second season TVNOW has learned.
While the show premiered to a rather small audience in the US (338,000), the last three episodes have seen a rather steep rise in ratings with each episode rating higher than the last (most recent episode nabbed 519,000 viewers) and like all HBO shows, Looking has drawn its greatest audience in gross views, which includes original airings, replays, On Demand and HBO Go, with a season-to-date score of two million weekly viewers.
As part of the renewal, Lauren Weedman (Doris), Raul Castillo (Richie) and Russell Tovey (Kevin) have all been bumped to series regulars. Weedman plays Dom’s roommate; Castillo is Patrick’s love interest; and Tovey portrays Patrick’s boss.
Production on the second season is expected to begin late this year in San Francisco.
