With Looking officially kaput, save for a wrap-up movie special, I need a new group of gays to live vicariously through. Hunting Season just might be it. As much as I like to think I’m still in my twenties, reality is, I’m not.
I never caught the first season, but after checking out the web series’ second season trailer, my interest has been piqued. I liked Looking, but this is what the HBO dramedy should’ve been.
Hunting Season comes from the creative mind of Jon Marcus whose credits include working on Party Monster, Boys Don’t Cry and a half a dozen television pilots. Ben Baur plays the series protagonist. Think a young gay Carrie Bradshaw minus the shoe fetish. He, too, also writes about sex.
Season 2 debuts on May 5 on Vimeo On Demand. Following episodes will premiere every Tuesday for four weeks thereafter. Check out the trailer below.
Season 2 Synopsis
Figuring out what you want in your late 20s is hard enough but does keeping a secret sex blog help sort out your feelings or just remind you of all of your mistakes? For Alex (Ben Baur), incredible self-awareness in the face of endless possibility is a double-edged sword, and when he runs into someone from his past who makes him question his choices, he decides it’s time to make some changes. His two best friends are going through their own turmoil as well, as Tommy (Mark Sinoway) confronts someone who despises him and everything he stands for, and TJ (Jake Manabat) and his husband Will explore non-monogamy in their marriage.
