Girls Is Renewed for Season 3, Says the Girl Who Makes Girls

Ahhh to be young and have your own TV show and be hated by half the country. Lena Dunham, creator and star of HBO's breakout subject-of-much-loud-debating Girls, is already playing the showbiz game like a cocky veteran.

While chatting (possibly while peeing) with Alec Baldwin on his podcast, Dunham announced there will be a third season of Girls before HBO got to announce there will be a third season of Girls, according to Deadline Hollywood. HBO has not confirmed the renewal, so the network either still has some punctuation to put in some contracts or it's elaborately Punk'ing Dunham.

The news is hardly surprising, though, and not just because producer Judd Apatow said the same thing as Dunham back in November. The show about post-college struggles for white girls in New York just won the Golden Globe for Best Comedy and Dunham took the prize for Best Actress. The program has decent ratings (Season 2 actually debuted lower than Season 1, a typically opposite trend for HBO), but people can't stop talking about it so it's good for HBO's brand. And it's just so darned hip!

Girls is currently in its second season and airs Sunday nights on HBO.

    It's a curiosity-based filler show for me. I don't remember if I've laughed while watching it, so was surprised it won best comedy, but everyone has different tastes about what's funny. But I haven't dropped it yet, so it's still OK IMO.

    It was sort of a given with all the attention the show's gotten, but I've loved season 2 so far and can't wait to see what happens next. Great show!

    I am in the 50% who likes the show but I understand that it may repel other viewers... It definitely leaves few people indifferent and seeing how many shows are SO BORING, what can i say, Girls is good news...

    Indeed, the most interesting thing about this show is that it's named after a Beastie Boys song.

    BOM, bom, BOM, bombom

    I like the way that they walk. And it's chill to hear them talk.

    I wasn't going to vote OR say anything, but that Beastie Boys ref gets total shout out from me to you Tim - First Prize! First Prize! First Prize!
