Premium cable network HBO has renewed Looking for a second season.

The highly-anticipated comedy-drama from creator Michael Lannan and director Andrew Haigh (Weekend) features three friends – Jonathan Groff (Glee, Boss), Murray Bartlett (Guiding Light) and Frankie J. Alvarez (Smash) – grappling with life in San Francisco, America's most gay-friendly city.

In the show's first 8-episode season, which premiered last month and ends next Sunday, Patrick (played by Groff) has come to San Francisco to find love. Patrick's friends are also looking for something. Dom (Bartlett) is having a mid-life crisis, while Agustin (Alvarez) and his boyfriend are adjusting to living together.

According to Deadline, HBO renewed the series despite soft ratings due to the buzz it has managed to generate.

Season two will also expand the cast of regulars to six by bumping up recurring roles played by Lauren Weedman, Raul Castillo and Russell Tovey to regulars.
