The announcement was made by HBO's president of programming, Michael Lombardo, during HBO's presentation at the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour in Beverly Hills. An air date has yet to be announced.
It was previously reported that the series had not been picked up for a third season. "After two years of following Patrick [Groff] 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 an earlier statement. "We look forward to sharing this adventure with the shows' loyal fans."
As previously reported, the second season premiere of "Looking," which was broadcast Jan. 11, was watched by only 183,000 viewers. That number was a 45 percent decrease from the show's 2014 debut.
Created by Michael Lannan and executive-produced by Andrew Haigh and Sarah Condon, the half-hour series also starred Russell Tovey, Frankie J. Alvarez, Murray Bartlett, Raul Castillo, Scott Bakula, O.T. Fagbenle, Lauren Weedman and Ptolemy Slocum.
Groff is back in the New York theatre scene, currently co-starring as King George III in Lin-Manuel Miranda's Broadway production of Hamilton.
