Looks Like 'Girls' Will Be Back for a Third Season on HBO

While HBO has yet to make things official via press release or confirmation to the press, both "Girls" creator and star Lena Dunham and executive producer Judd Apatow have now gone on record as saying the show will be back for a third season. Apatow first made mention of the fact that "we're about to start shooting the third season of 'Girls'" on David Poland's DP/30 video interview series back in November.

Dunham made the same third season claim more recently when appearing as a guest on Alec Baldwin's WNYC show/podcast "Here's The Thing" this week, telling the actor/host, "We're starting season three at the end of March. I'm so excited."

She also tells Baldwin that, as opposed to the 10-episode runs of the first two seasons, the third might consist of 12, that she has two feature scripts that she's been working on and that she wants to make another small film before going on to something bigger.

The renewal hardly comes as a surprise -- the show, while not a huge ratings hit for HBO, has certainly been a media and cultural one, recently snagging two Golden Globe awards after picking up multiple Emmy nominations. [via Variety]

    You're absolutely right that this renewal comes as no surprise as all! I've been addicted to Girls since the very first episode, and that addiction as only grown stronger! Heck, I've probably seen every episode a million times with my friends from my office at DISH, and they still haven’t gotten old! Actually, I've made sure to record and save every episode I can get my hands on, so I can always have them ready to watch whenever. It's just a good thing that I can keep this ever-growing collection going without forfeiting any other shows I want to record, since I have a hefty 450 hours of HD recording space available on my DISH Hopper DVR. As an added bonus with that much memory space, I'll be able to house this new third season without a problem at all! :)
