It is official even before Season Three of Lena Dunham’s GIRLS airs that a Season Four is planned. The show is said to film this summer with all the cast intact. It is too early to confirm how many episodes will be made but the fourth season is likely to air in its usual timeframe (meaning January) of 2015. This info was straight from HBO’s EVP, Casey Bloys at the start of the Girls TCA panel.
But first, HBOWatch will be sitting pretty with the GIRLS in Season Three debuting this Sunday, 01.12 beginning at 10:00pm ET with two back-to-back episodes. Some of our own Girls will be reviewing/recapping each week and it should be some giddy fun so join us.
UPDATE: Girls Season 3 is happening for sure. In fact, Judd Apatow recently explained that the team was committed to SIX seasons of the show. HBO likes to order its programs one season at a time though. They haven’t even officially confirmed more seasons of Game of Thrones! But those in the know understand that Girls is here to stay for the forseeable future even with one of the male stars possible taking going to the dark side.
We’ll keep you posted on a more specific premiere date when we have further news but we’re sticking by that Winter 2015 date we set above.
