HBO Cancelling “Looking”

Well, we were afraid of this. After a second season of struggling ratings, it appears that HBO has decided to pull the plug on Looking

Writer Kevin Sessums posted this message on his Facebook page last night:

I had an email from my friend Jonathan Groff when I got home from my reading tonight at Books Inc. telling me that HBO announced today that it was canceling Looking but that it would film a movie of the series to air in order to wrap things up instead of leaving things hanging. This makes me sad but life – and television series – are about moving on at some point.

There’s been no official confirmation from HBO yet, but we’ll keep you updated when the inevitable happens.

First thoughts?

UPDATE: HBO HAS RELEASED A STATEMENT

After two years of following Patrick and his tight-knit group of friends as they explored San Francisco in search of love and lasting relationships, HBO will present the final chapter of their journey as a special. We look forward to sharing this adventure with the shows loyal fans.
