Looking Season 2 Episode Count Revealed (and It’s More Than Eight!)

Things are Looking up for fans of HBO’s little-gay-dramedy-that-could.

TVLine has learned exclusively that the show’s second season will consist of 10 episodes — an upgrade from Season 1’s relatively paltry eight. (HBO declined to comment.)

Despite tepid ratings, HBO renewed Looking for a second season back in February. At the same time, the show promoted three fan favorites — Lauren Weedman (Dom’s hilariously acid-tongued BFF Doris), Raúl Castillo (Patrick’s BF Richie) and Russell Tovey (Patrick’s boss Kevin) — to series regular.

Season 2 is slated to premiere in early 2015.
