HBO's 'Looking' Gets Season 2 Renewal!

​Get ready for more Looking! HBO's controversial San Francisco-based gay series just got the green light for its second season! 

This comes following consistent ratings growth--this past Sunday's episode was the show's highest rated yet with 519,000 viewers. That's a 54% increase from the series premiere in January. 

According to Deadline

"Including encores, Looking averaged 749,000 viewers on Sunday, with its episodes attracting gross audience of 2 million viewers season to date."

It also doesn't hurt that Looking has become part of the pop cultural conversation, so what it lacks in viewers it makes up for in media coverage and social media dialog.

Even more good news:

Joining the trio as new regulars for Season 2 are Lauren Weedman, Raúl Castillo and Russell Tovey who are all recurring this season. 

We're loving all three of these individuals on the series so their promotion to series regular status is extremely welcome news!

Are you looking forward to more Looking, Instincters?

Loved that episode where the Mexican hairdresser told the snotty Cuban to f*** off. LOL! Their Spanish dialogue was spot on and colloquially accurate.

I loved Russel Tovey when he was a werewolf of the UK's Being Human

Just wish it was an hour show

LOVE THE SHOW ! SO GLAD HBO RENEWED IT FOR A SECOND SEASON!!

Slow start at the beginning but every week it's been improving to the point now i'm hooked. I'm glad HBO renewed the show for a second season.

Love this show
