While we reported earlier that Lena Dunham pretty much confirmed a Girls Season 3 a couple of months ago we are now calling it official. Speaking to Alec Baldwin in a podcast the show creator said:
“We’re starting season three at the end of March [...] I’m so excited.”
Between the awards, book deals and almost-confirmations this year we expect the official HBO press release to come soon regarding Girls Season 3. Usually HBO announces renewals shortly after the new season begins. So nowish would seem appropriate and likely.
With filming beginning this early will we see Girls Season 3 earlier than 2014? Maybe alongside Boardwalk Empire season 4 this fall? We’ll keep you updated.
UPDATED: HBO has issued a press release and confirmed the third season of Girls as having 12 episodes this time around:
Third-season commitment is for 12 episodes. The premiere episode of the second season already exceeds a gross audience of 3.8 million viewers with only partial data available.
So there you have it. Girls 3 is officially good to go and longer than every before! Premiere date TBD.
