Controversy swirled around HBO’s new comedy series, Girls when series producer Judd Apatow said this at the end of his most recent interview with the press:
“We’re about to shoot the third season of Girls. Season 2 starts in January”
HBO usually confirms new seasons of series’ immediately following the first episode of the newest season. No one doubts that Girls, with Emmy awards and steady ratings, was going to fail to be picked up by the premium cable network. But this probably isn’t how HBO wanted the news to break.
The network said this in response to the controversy:
We’re looking forward to the launch of Season 2 and hope to have good news shortly thereafter.
Girls season TWO premieres on January 13th on HBO. Season 3? With a filming date starting… nowish it sounds like? We predict that Girls season 3 might air as early as Summer/Fall 2013. We’ll keep you updated as soon as we receive official word.
