Not that HBO's 'Girls' didn't already court its fair share of controversy, but the Lena Dunham-scripted series took an exceptional amount of criticism this past season for sex scenes between Dunham's character Hannah and guest star Patrick Wilson, as well as those between star Adam Driver and guest Shiri Appleby. With production on 'Girls' season 3 underway, Dunham has issued her own responses to the criticism, calling one scene a "terrible miscommunication."

'Girls' season 3 was thrown for a loop shortly after the airing of season 2 finale "Together," when series star Christopher Abbott abruptly quit the series after his character Charlie was positioned to take a more integral role. Now that 'Boardwalk Empire' and 'The Walking Dead' star Michael Zegen has joined 'Girls' season 3, however, speculation has begun that Zegen may replace Abbott in the role rather than portray an original character.
Yesterday we learned the admittedly unsurprising news that HBO's 'Girls' was due to receive its very own porn parody, courtesy of Hustler.

Though HBO's eternally buzzing Lena Dunham dramedy 'Girls' made little regular habit of cliffhangers, many found themselves perplexed by the the unusually optimistic ending of season 2 finale "Together," which largely reunited the season 1 couples. That ending was thrown into chaos by the sudden departure of actor Christopher Abbott, for whom the season 2 finale had suggested a larger role, but what do Abbott's castmates have to say about the exit?

'Girls' star Allison Williams is making the jump the big screen, and it looks like Fox has her on their wishlist to star in their 'Fantastic Four' reboot as Sue Storm/Invisible Woman. Here's why we think this could be good thing.
Recently, news broke that 'Girls' lost one of its main boys -- series star Charlie Abbott was reported to leave the series over creative differences, despite the fact that season 2 finale "Together" set up an important role for the character next season.

Only a few weeks have passed since HBO's 'Girls' ended its second season on a curiously upbeat note, with several characters returning to the relationships they maintained at the outset of the series.

Like the episodes before it, and the season before that 'Girls' has continue to prove a divisive force in the TV world. Following Sunday's quietly optimistic season 2 finale "Together," the series will be in for a bit of a shake-up in season 3 as production expands from 10 to 12 episodes and Golden Globe-winning creator Lena Dunham adds a few new writers, but will 'Girls' be going dark in season 3?
