8 Things We Learned About The Second Season of 'Looking' at Outfest

At L.A.'s Outfest on Saturday afternoon, the cast and creators of HBO's "Looking" gathered for a Q&A panel discussion about the show, which, although didn't show any footage from the new season since they don't start shooting for another month, did reveal a few nuggets of information to savor while we wait in anticipation for season two.

At L.A.'s Outfest on Saturday afternoon, the cast and creators of HBO's "Looking" gathered for a Q&A panel discussion about the show, which, although didn't show any footage from the new season since they don't start shooting for another month, did reveal a few nuggets of information to savor while we wait in anticipation for season two. 


1. Those three characters announced may not be a big deal.
"It's funny when you see those things," said director and exec producer Andrew Haigh, "because sometimes they're people with two lines in one episode." So, maybe for those three diverse characters already announced, we shouldn't get our hopes up.

2. But more characters are on the way.
"You'll see more great additional characters," creator and exec producer Michael Lannan assured the audience.

Looking 6.2

3. Agustin has a new love interest.
One character that hasn't been announced already is a new love interest for Agustin named Eddie, which arrived as news even to Frankie J. Alvarez on stage. Maybe a new love interest will help set Agustin straight after he became such an insufferably divisive character in season one.

4. A "cuddlier" character will be introduced.
After an audience member raised a question about the under-representation of overweight gay men on the show, Haigh teased there would be the addition of a "cuddlier guy." Sounds like the show will be getting its first bear.


5. Doris will get a love life.
"I'd like more sex scenes for me," Lauren Weedman joked, mentioning her singular makeout scene with Hugo, her barely-there love interest from season one. "There is a love interest," Haigh told her about season two, to which she responded: "I can't wait to see how you picture a Doris love interest." "He's a very attractive, smart man," Haigh said. "There is some sex," he added. "Oh, I'm sure everyone wants to see that," Weedman immediately retorted.

The golden boys.
The golden boys.


6. Scott Bakula will return.
After Raul Castillo and Weedman both got upped to series regulars, the fate of Scott Bakula's Lynn was left in a bit of limbo. Would we get to see how the relationship between him and Dom either progressed or resolved? The answer is that we will. "There will be more of Patrick with Kevin and Richie, and we'll also see what happens with Dom and Lynn and how they navigate that," Haigh said.

7. More family time could be coming.
Haigh noted they will continue to explore the complex dynamic between Patrick and his mother, which so profoundly came to a head in season one's seventh episode. He then added the desire for over the course of the show to explore all of the characters' relationships with their families.

8. The Golden Girls will be together more.
While a large portion of season one had the trio of Patrick, Agustin and Dom apart and dealing with their own situations, Haigh noted, "in season two, there's a lot more of the three of them together, which I think is good."
