HBO has released the first trailer for the upcoming third season of Lena Dunham’s polarizing comedy series Girls. While the second season ended on a rather down note, this trailer amps up the fun level and promises plenty of drama, comedy, and Adam Driver (on a related note, Adam Driver should be in everything). Series regular Christopher Abbott made a public departure from the show during the beginning of production on season three, and in this trailer we see Allison Williams’ Marnie reeling from his absence. We also get a peek at a possible new career path for Dunham’s Hannah and more adorable shenanigans courtesy of Zosia Mamet’s Shoshanna. Though Girls is certainly a bit of a mixed bag at times, the good seems to outweigh the bad and I’m definitely looking forward to seeing what season three has in store.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer. Season three of Girls premieres with two back-to-back episodes on HBO January 12, 2014.
GIRLS returns for its third season immediately after the debut of TRUE DETECTIVE with a special presentation of two episodes back-to-back SUNDAY, JAN. 12 (10:00-11:00 p.m.), on HBO, followed by other half-hour episodes on subsequent Sundays at the same time. Created by and starring Lena Dunham, the Emmy®-winning series is a comic look at the assorted humiliations and rare triumphs of a group of girls in their 20s. Dunham executive produces along with Judd Apatow, Jenni Konner and Ilene S. Landress; Bruce Eric Kaplan is consulting producer. The cast also includes Jemima Kirke, Allison Williams, Zosia Mamet, Adam Driver and Alex Karpovsky.
