Looking, which filmed extensively in San Francisco, has been canceled after two seasons, but main character Patrick’s poor life decisions will get some closure.

“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,” HBO said in a statement, according to US magazine. “We look forward to sharing this adventure with the show’s loyal fans.”

On the last episode, Patrick and his shady-as-hell boyfriend/former boss Kevin were on uneasy footing after hurriedly shacking up, a mistake that will hopefully be rectified on the date-to-be-determined special. Although USA Today reports the show averaged 298,000 viewers an episode, less than half the audience of its lead-in, Girls, it left the Bay Area with fond, Instagram-filtered memories of its casting calls for cuddly, naked bears.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
