The promised conclusion to the series Looking now has a premiere date and plot synopsis. Looking: The Movie will air on Saturday, July 23, 2016 at 10pm ET/PT and will provide closure to fans of the three friends played by Jonathan Groff (Frozen, Glee), Frankie J. Alvarez, and Murray Bartlett. The series ran on HBO for two seasons but was not picked up for a third. Instead, the hour and a half movie will wrap up the series.

The conclusion to Looking was written by Andrew Haigh and Michael Lannan. Haigh directed and also executive produced along with Michael Lannan and Sarah Condon.

The Plot: Looking: The Movie wraps up the story of three close friends living in San Francisco who explore the options available to a new generation of gay men seeking fulfillment in love and life. In the film, Patrick (Groff) returns to the city for the first time in almost a year to celebrate a momentous event with his old friends. In the process, he must face the unresolved relationships he left behind and make difficult choices about what’s important to him.
