Can it really be five years since the celebrated (and very much missed) queer series Looking debuted on January 19th?


In celebration of the 5th Anniversary of the short-lived HBO show, we encourage readers to revisit or discover this pioneering series, now available for streaming on HBO NOW.


On January 19, 2014, HBO debuted Looking, the ground-breaking LGBTQ comedy-drama series, which centered around a group of 30-something friends exploring the exciting, and sometimes overwhelming, options available to a new generation of contemporary gay men living in the San Francisco Bay Area.


While Looking focused primarily on a group of gay friends, the themes remain universal, including deeply relatable depictions of modern love, finding professional fulfillment, seeking happiness and forging an identity in a growingly complicated world.


Looking stars Jonathan Groff (“Hamilton,” HBO’s “The Normal Heart”) as Patrick, Frankie J. Alvarez (“Smash”) as Agustín and Murray Bartlett (“Iron Fist,” “August”) as Dom, Looking was created by Michael Lannan.


Despite its dedicated following, Looking lasted just two seasons on air, followed by a one-time special to wrap up the story lines following outcry from fans.
