While filming for the second season of HBO's drama, Looking has yet to begin filming, spoilers have finally started to emerge about what viewers can expect for Patrick, Agustin and Dom.
So here's a breakdown of what to expect (so far) for year two of the series ....
- Season 2 will comprise of 10 episodes.
- Lauren Weedman (Doris) has become a full time cast member along with Russell Tovey (Kevin) and Raul Castillo (Richie).
- The show will be adding more diversity to the cast as well with new characters such as Malik, an African-American staffer in the mayor’s office; Sammie, a trans man who lives at the shelter where Agustin gets a job; and Brady, Richie’s new redhead boyfriend.
- Casting for these characters have yet to be announced though.
While these are only some rather tiny spoilers, they are at least something to go on. It also seems that the producers took on board the criticisms over a lack of diversity in the cast (though in fairness, Looking's first season did marginally better there compared to three seasons of Girls) and the cast themselves did reveal some tiny tidbits at the recent Outfest panel - Inside Looking about the upcoming season. I know the show's first season was more solid/okay than amazing but I am enthused for the second season having read these spoilers.
