HBO show 'Looking' gets canceled

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (KGO) -- An HBO show filmed in San Francisco is getting the boot.

The cable TV network today announced it's cancelling "Looking."

The series ended its second season three days ago and will wrap up with a final special to close out various story lines.

The show followed a group of gay friends living in San Francisco. It received critical praise, but never pulled in a big audience.

"Looking" took advantage of rebates San Francisco offered to film in the city.

San Francisco's Film Commission released a statement Wednesday, thanking HBO for filming in the city.

The agency added the show created hundreds of local jobs.
