In: Donovan, TV Shows
looking-season-2-teaser

The boys of the Castro are back… well almost. We still have a couple of months before Looking airs its Season 2 premiere on Sunday, January 11. Luckily for fans, HBO dropped the first teaser for the series on Sunday.

The promo clip doesn’t reveal anything in terms of storylines to look forward to. Instead, it puts the focus on the handsome faces of its male stars. Particularly, Jonathan Groff’s dilemma of being torn between Raul Castilo and Russell Tovey. Nice problem to have if you ask me. Both Castillo and Tovey have been upgraded to series regular for the sophomore season.

Check out the colorful clip below set to the tune of Tiga’s 2006 record, “Far From Home.” It definitely has me even more excited for the show’s return.

Mark your calendars folks. Not only do the 72nd annual Golden Globe Awards air on Sunday, January 11, 2015 on NBC, but HBO has a great lineup as well. The network announced the premiere dates for the new seasons of Girls and Looking, plus the series premiere of Togetherness.

Sandwiched in between the returning shows is the network’s new offering Togetherness. From brothers Jay and Mark Duplass, the show follows two couples living under one roof on the fringes of Los Angeles. Brett and Michelle (Mark Duplass, Melanie Lynskey) are struggling to rekindle the spark in their relationship, which has puttered out from the stresses of marriage and children. When Brett’s friend Alex (Steve Zissis) and Michelle’s sister Tina (Amanda Peet) move in with them, the foursome engage in a tragically comedic struggle to follow their personal dreams, while still remaining good friends, siblings and spouses to each other.

Looking returns for its ten-episode second season. Too bad HBO didn’t order more episodes. Last season was over before you knew it. Raúl Castillo, Lauren Weedman and Russell Tovey have all been upgraded to series regulars, joining Jonathan Groff, Frankie J. Alvarez and Murray Bartlett. New additions this year include Mean GirlsDaniel Franzese, Chris Perfetti, Bashir Salahuddin and Jennifer Foster. Congrats to the cast of the HBO dramedy for making it on the Out 100 2014 list.

The Lena Dunham-created series enters its fourth season. “This season of ‘Girls’ is the girls making smarter choices and realizing that life is still hard,” says Dunham. Last we saw Hannah, she got accepted in a Writers’ Workshop in Iowa. With her away from Brooklyn, she’s worried that it will ruin her relationship with Adam. Meanwhile, Marnie (Allison Williams) is once again having problems in the romance area. She’s having an affair with an actor. This season, viewers will finally get to meet Shoshanna’s parents. Check out a recently released promo below giving fans a glimpse at the new season of Girls.

Confession time. I never checked out The Comeback back when it first aired in 2005. When HBO announced it was resurrecting the series, I binge-watched the first season to catch up before the second season. I’m officially a fan of Valerie Cherish and can’t wait to see her new adventures.

The Comeback makes its comeback on November 9 on HBO with Lisa Kudrow, Dan Bucatinsky, Kellan Lutz and Malik Akerman all reprising their roles. The network unveiled the first official extended trailer for the cult favorite’s return and it looks as hilarious as ever, if not more. Check it out below.

Believe it or not, someone said ‘no’ to Ryan Murphy. Even more shocking, it’s HBO. Definitely surprising given their recent successful and critically-acclaimed collaboration with The Normal Heart. The network revealed it opted out of Murphy’s sexually-charged drama, Open.

“After such a triumphant collaboration with The Normal Heart, everyone felt that Open was not the right next step for all involved,” HBO programming president Michael Lombardo said in a statement. “However, we fully expect to work together again in the near future.”

According to the Hollywood Reporter’s sources, HBO wanted to tweak the drama, but Murphy didn’t want to change the pilot. Open was described as “a multicharacter exploration of the complex, ever evolving landscape of sexuality, monogamy and intimacy in relationships.”
