Season 2 of HBO's gay comedy-drama
ended Sunday with many unanswered questions, one of which is: Will
there will be a third season?
“I'm cautiously optimistic,” series
creator Michael Lannan told TVLine.com.
“HBO has always given us a lot of support. They love the show.”
Lannan, however, acknowledged that the
show has not been a ratings hit.
“[HBO realizes] there are other
things more important than numbers,” he said. “Our numbers have
been OK, just not incredible. HBO has been great and, hopefully,
they will continue to be.”
While the show's central character,
Patrick (played by Jonathan Groff), gets the guy (Kevin, played by
Russell Tovey), the show's final scene leaves viewers wondering if it
was what he wanted.
“Kevin's last line to Patrick of 'You
just need to trust me,' sends Patrick in a certain direction and when
he picks up that scapular out of the box, to me it's about trust and
Patrick looking toward someone he does trust,” Lannan
As the season ends, Patrick finds
himself at Richie's (Raul Castillo) barbershop for a haircut.
“I finally get to cut your hair,”
Richie says as he turns on a hair clipper. “Are you ready?”
“I'm ready,” Patrick answers.
