HBO snuck us another hit of Girls season 3 last night and this time we’re really getting a feeling for what this season may bring in terms of storyline. Here’s what HBO has said about Girls season 3:
Hannah has settled into newfound domesticity with Adam, and is rehabilitating her writing career. Marnie is recovering from her traumatic breakup with Charlie and working to achieve the life she feels she deserves. Nearing graduation, the newly single Shoshanna is trying to strike a healthy balance between partying and school. And Jessa continues to disrupt the lives of everyone around her.
And here’s that new trailer you’re obviously here to see:
It looks like this season will include some interesting guest stars as well including: Richard E. Grant (“Doctor Who”) as Jessa’s new friend; Rita Wilson (“It’s Complicated”) as Marnie’s mother; John Cameron Mitchell (“Hedwig and the Angry Inch”) as Hannah’s editor; Gaby Hoffman (“You Can Count on Me”) as Adam’s sister; Debra Monk (“Damages“) as Dr. Sterns; Shiri Appleby (“Chicago Fire”) as Natalia, Adam’s ex; Danielle Brooks (“Orange Is the New Black”) as Laura; Amy Schumer (“Inside Amy Schumer”) as Angie; Bob Balaban (HBO’s “Family Tree”) as Dr. Rice; Colin Quinn (HBO’s “Colin Quinn Long Story Short”) as Hermie; and Andrew Rannells (“The New Normal”) as Elijah.
Girls season 2 premieres with a DOUBLE dose of episodic dramedy on January 12th.
