Executive producer Andrew Haigh has promised that the second season of Looking will be bigger.

HBO will premiere Looking following the return of comedy Girls, which heads into its fourth season, and new series Togetherness, about “two couples living under one roof on the fringes of Los Angeles” on Sunday, January 11.

In its first season, Looking introduced us to three gay men living in San Francisco, America's most gay-friendly city.

Patrick (played by Jonathan Groff) has come to the city to find love. His friends are also looking for something. Dom (Murray Bartlett) is having a mid-life crisis, while Agustin (Frankie J. Alvarez) struggles with his relationship.

The show's first season left off with two possible romantic interests for Patrick: Richie (Raul Castillo) and Kevin (Russell Tovey).

“The first episode [of the new season] is them being determined to spend more time together and go away to Russian River, which is, like, two hours outside San Francisco,” Haigh told Entertainment Weekly. “It's this really beautiful, tranquil place along the redwoods.”

“I feel like what happens in the second season is we go deeper into the characters and deeper into all the storylines,” said Barlett in a promotional clip released last week.

“The fans should expect us going further, digging deeper. It's the show but bigger,” Haigh said. (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
