The HBO series “Looking,” about a group of gay friends living in San Francisco, has been cancelled, just days after its season two finale.

The show will wrap up with an end-of-series special, according to a statement released by HBO:

“After two years of following Patrick and his tight-knit group of friends as they explored San Francisco in search of love and lasting relationships, HBO will present the final chapter of their journey as a special. We look forward to sharing this adventure with the shows loyal fans.”

Entertainment Weekly notes:

The move marks a rare early-run cancelation by HBO, which often lets modestly performing titles continue for years. Looking ran for two seasons and 18 episodes, with its second-season finale airing Sunday night. No word yet from HBO when the special will air or whether it will be longer than the show’s usual 30-minute running time.

Update: Fans of the show have launched a petition drive asking HBO to renew “Looking” for a third season.
