If there’s any question that Lena Dunham’s hit show Girls may be a fluke, that might be put to bed pretty soon; so to speak. The honest, and sometimes physically exposing show is said to be looking for a third season order. The second Season of Girls won’t be premiering until January, but according to Judd Apatow, the show’s executive producer, the cast is already starting up for a third season.
“We’re about to shoot the third season of ‘Girls.’ Season 2 starts in January,” said Apatow. However, when HBO was reached out for a comment, they were a bit hesitant to give an official thumbs up for season 3. A representative for the network said, “We’re looking forward to the launch of Season 2 and hope to have good news shortly thereafter.”
If you think Season 2 will be a lighter fair, think again as series creator, writer, and lead actress Lena Dunham teased the new season will be full of “sex and sharp objects.” Although, there will be one change in the series. After receiving comments over the lack of diversity, which was met by Dunham’s hesitancy of writing people of color, comedian and star in his own right, Donald Glover, has been added to the cast of Season 2. It hasn’t been revealed whether or not his guest star will be a multi-episode arc, or if he will be representing the minority spectrum for just an episode.
Recently HBO released the official trailer for Season 2. If you missed it check it out here.
