HBO's Looking —the show responsible for bringing Jonathan Groff to San Francisco for weeks at a time— is dunzo. For those who described it as "the greatest TV show about this town—ever," the news is heartbreaking, but Variety reports that we'll have closure with a TV movie that wraps up the characters' story lines.
"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 announces in a statement. "We look forward to sharing this adventure with the shows loyal fans."
Groff previously told SFist that he lives in the Castro/Mission grey area while in town, and drinks coffee like a local while doing laundry at Sit & Spin on 18th Street. At least with a movie in the works, we'll have one last chance to lurk at Philz —or is it Reveille?— and wait for him to stroll through the door.
