After struggling with ratings and not being renewed by HBO, Looking will return for its last hurrah at the San Francisco Frameline Film Festival in June.

The festival will premiere the film on closing night (June 26), wrapping up both the festival and the loose ends left after the show's cancellation.

The gay dramedy, once described by the BBC as "one of the most revolutionary depictions of gay life ever on TV – because it makes it totally ordinary", will wrap up with an 86-minute feature, written by its creator Michael Lannon and Weekend director Andrew Haigh.

Frankie Alvarez, who played Agustín on the show, spoke to Vulture about the film last year, saying that it's a feature-length film that doesn’t adhere to an episodic structure.

While details on the plot of the film remain scarce, Alvarez promises we won't be disappointed, saying: "We’ll get to close it out the way everyone wants to close it out."

We can't wait.
