The movie premieres on M-Net Edge on Monday.
Sometimes the end leads to a whole new beginning. On Monday 25 July at 01:00, the acclaimed series Looking ties up loose ends with a final farewell titled Looking: The Movie, exclusive to M-Net Edge, channel 102.
The series Looking debuted in January 2014, garnering significant praise from both fans and critics in its two-season run. While the drama focused primarily on the lives of three gay friends, the themes of the show still remained relatable to everybody: falling in love, finding professional fulfilment, forging an identity in a complicated world and, of course, the constant search for happiness.
Looking: The Movie wraps up the stories of Patrick, Agustín and Dom as well as the interweaving stories of their friends and lovers - Doris, Kevin and Eddie. After living in Denver for nearly a year, Patrick returns to San Francisco to celebrate a momentous event with his old friends. It’s here, back where it all started, that he’s forced to face the unresolved relationships he left behind, and make difficult choices about what is and isn’t important to him.
Reprising their roles from the series are Jonathan Groff (The Normal Heart, Hamilton) as Patrick, Frankie J Alvarez (Smash) as Agustín, Murray Bartlett (August) as Dom, Lauren Weedman (Date Night, Hung) as Doris, Russell Tovey (A View From the Bridge, The History Boys) as Kevin, and Raúl Castillo (Gotham, Cold Weather) as Richie.
Guest stars from Season 2 include Daniel Franzese (Mean Girls) as Eddie; Bashir Salahuddin (Emmy®-nominated writer for Late Night with Jimmy Fallon) as Doris’ boyfriend, Malik; Chris Perfetti (Crossbones) as Richie’s new boyfriend, Brady; and OT Fagbenle (The Interceptor) as Agustín’s ex, Frank. The film also features a special appearance by Tyne Daly (Cagney & Lacey, Judging Amy).
The movie is written by Andrew Haigh (45 Years and Weekend) and Michael Lannan, directed by Andrew Haigh and executive produced by Andrew Haigh, Michael Lannan, and Sarah Condon (Bored to Death).
Looking: The Movie will be scheduled on these additional dates on M-Net Movies Premiere (104) on Sunday 31 July at 22:30 and Wednesday 3 August at 23:15.
