Early last week HBO finally lifted the veil on the coming second season of 'Girls,' utilizing the season's first trailer to offer new looks at characters played by Donald Glover, Rita Wilson and Patrick Wilson as well as our regular favorites Hannah, Jessa, Marnie and Shoshanna. While we wait for the second season of the Lena Dunham / Judd Apatow HBO comedy to premiere on January 13, the network has issued an official poster that, well, might hurt your eyes just a bit.
The first season of HBO's buzzy Lena Dunham/Judd Apatow comedy 'Girls' succeeded for a number of reasons, between those enamored of the honest and heartfelt writing, and plenty of detractors who still wanted to see what happened next. And while the second season won't hit the network until Sunday, January 13, the first season home release arrives next week. And what better what to show people what they're missing than with a deleted scene featuring 'SNL' alum Jenny Slate in a barely there bikini?
Well, we certainly knew this was coming. With the release of HBO's 'Enlightened' season 2 trailer earlier this week, it was only a matter of time before HBO busted out the 'Girls' season 2 trailer, both premiering on Sunday, January 13. So what's next for Hannah, Shoshanna, Marnie and Jessa, after last season's bitter finale? Plenty of fights, celebrity guest stars, nudity and Donald Glover, of course! Get your first look at 'Girls' season 2 inside!
Earlier today HBO unveiled the first official trailer for 'Enlightened' season 2, set to return to the airwaves on Sunday, January 13, along with the second season premiere of HBO's buzzy Lena Dunham drama 'Girls.' Unfortunately, 'Girls' season 2 has yet to issue its first real trailer, but the network has instead released three new shots of Hannah, Marnie, Jessa and Shoshanna back in the saddle! What new awkwardness will the foursome find in 'Girls' season 2?
"Hold your horses," we thought, unintentionally connecting the latest bit of 'Girls' gossip to the HBO series' oft-mentioned association with 'Sex and the City.' However controversial the first season of the Judd Apatow / Lena Dunham-produced HBO drama 'Girls' may have been, fans of the series still eagerly await the coming of its second season in early 2013. Imagine our surprise then to learn that its producers are already assured of 'Girls' season 3! Is there truth to the rumor, or are we being jerked around by 'Girls'?
As much as we love the current crop of TV infecting all of our Sundays, from 'Boardwalk Empire' to 'Dexter,' 'The Walking Dead' and beyond, we can't help feelikng like we're in need of a return to more down-to-Earth fare. Did Hannah find some new way to alienate both herself and Adam? Did Amy find another way to change her life? We know 'Girls' and 'Enlightened' will return next year, but when will HBO give us an exact date? Oh, right now? Sweet!
The first season of HBO's critical darling 'Girls' certainly polarized plenty of people, but perhaps none more so than those who thought the Brooklyn adventures of Hannah, Marnie, Jessa and Shoshanna sorely lacked in diversity. Though series creator Lena Dunham had her reasons for casting the show as she did, it seems that pressure has created a few changes in season 2. But what does 'Community's' Donald Glover have to do with it?
As the opening sketch of this Sunday's Emmys reminded us, 'Girls' features an impressive amount of nudity from unexpected sources. Fans new to the series might have been surprised to see newfound star Lena Dunham whipping off her top so quickly, but even more-so by one-time 'Freaks & Geeks' star Becky Ann Baker, playing her mother. As the show gears up for its second season in January, can you guess what upcoming guest-star Rita Wilson doesn't want to do?
Ah, 'Girls.' HBO's polarizing, yet infinitely watchable hit from mind of
Hannah Lena Dunham and Judd Apatow. It still saddens us to think that we'll have to wait all the way until January for the continuing adventures of Hannah, Marnie, Shoshanna and Jessa, what with the bevy of guest stars we know season 2 to have, but thankfully HBO aims to keep the wait a bit shorter with an all-new teaser! So what do do we learn of 'Girls' season 2 from the spot?
'Girls' season 2 won't begin airing until January of 2013, but given its long production schedule we've been able to observe it filming since as far back as May. And while our last peek at the set told us that 'Community' star Donald Glover might appear, the latest look reveals Tom Hanks' wife herself, Rita Wilson! But who will the actress portray, and might Hanks himself make an appearance?
