Two new clips from Andrew Haigh, Michael Lannan, and the filmmakers behind HBO's Looking take us behind the second season of the San Francisco-based drama starring Jonathan Groff, Frankie J. Alvarez, Murray Bartlett, Raul Castillo, and Russell Tovey which premieres on January 11.

FranzeseBackstage clips offer glimpses of on-set goofiness, kissing between co-stars, drinking in the wilderness, and interviews with Groff, Haigh, Bartlett, Tovey, Lannan, Alvarez, and Castillo.

Lauren Weedman's Doris becomes a bigger part of season 2 and finds (an apparently well-hung) love interest.

Says Haigh: "The fans should expect us going further, digging deeper. It's the show but bigger."

The second season of HBO's gay-themed series Looking is set to premiere on Sunday, January 11 at 10 pm ET, Deadline reports, in a block of programming kicked off by the 4th season of Girls at 9 pm, the new comedy Togetherness, at 9:30 pm.

The forthcoming series will feature 10 episodes.

The cast is featured in leather for this year's OUT 100. Check out 15 photos from the set of Looking taken earlier this year, HERE.


The Cast Of 'Looking' Leathers It Up For The Out100 - PHOTO

Leather

As part of Out Magazine's annual Out100 honors, out gay actors Jonathan Groff, Murray Bartlett and Russell Tovey of Looking channeled the first Folsom Street Fair in San Francisco circa 1984. The boys seemed to have formed quite a bond working on what Out named the TV show of the year:

Groff and his rowdy band of brothers — [...] Raúl Castillo, Murray Bartlett, Frankie J. Alvarez, and Russell Tovey — taunt and tease and riff off each other like they’ve been playing dress-up together their entire lives. Without missing a beat, Alvarez dubs Groff’s impish attitude “hashtag chapswag,” and the nickname sticks. The show’s creators and many of the crew are queer, but you’d need a cheat sheet to remember who’s not actually gay (Castillo and Alvarez, if you must keep score).

Andrew Haigh, the creator of HBO's Looking, Instagrammed this adorable photo of actors Raul Castillo and Jonathan Groff from the streets of San Francisco's Folsom Street Fair yesterday, where the cast was spending a bit more time. Looking has been shooting its second season since late August in and around the Bay area.

Fans of the show will remember a few pivotal scenes from the show last year for which Groff donned some leather.

Castillo, who recently joined Instagram, posted a photo from the Fair as well, with the caption, "Folsom Street Fair 2014. Check."

Several new actors have joined the cast this season including Mean Girls star Daniel Franzese, Crossbones' Chris Perfetti and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon's Bashir Salahuddin.
