Our Sundays will be all-too quiet for the next few weeks thanks to our precious holidays, but the 'Girls' season 3 premiere on January 12 gets closer and closer. The first photos of the new season have emerged to complement the most recent trailer, and there's at least one return we hadn't yet expected!
While Jessa (Jemima Kirke)'s return was a given, particularly in either of the most recent trailers, also present among the photos is Rita Wilson as Marnie (Allison WIlliams)' mother, who previously appeared in a solitary season 2 episode. This time around,. the new season will open with Marnie living at her parents house, following the offscreen breakup with Charlie (Christopher Abbott).
Here's what HBO has to say of the first two season 3 episodes premiering on January 12:
Episode 3.01 – Females Only
Hannah and Adam host a dinner at their apartment; Marnie is still upset about her breakup with Charlie; Shoshanna alternates between nights of sexual freedom and academia.
Episode 3.02 – Truth or Dare
Hannah, Shoshanna and Adam take a road trip; Marnie moves into her own place; Hannah seeks inspiration to meet her editor’s deadline.
So far, we know of ‘Girls’ season 3 that the expanded run of 12 episodes will likely see at least one of the characters entering rehab, while Andrew Rannells’ Elijah will return as a regular in season 4. Jon Hamm‘s wife Jennifer Westfeldt has been observed filming on the set, while Michael Zegen (‘Boardwalk Empire‘) has been announced in an unknown role, along with ‘Orange Is the New Black‘ star Danielle Brooks. Other guest stars include ‘Doctor Who‘ star Richard E. Grant, ‘Crystal Fairy’ star Gabby Hoffmann, ‘The To Do List‘ star Sarah Steele and ‘Zero Hour‘ star Amir Arison.
