Mark Your Calendars: Girls’ Second Season Premiere Date Revealed

The new cast of Girls is much more culturally diverse.

After months of biting our nails in anticipation as we await the second season of Lena Dunham’s HBO comedy Girls, we can almost see the home stretch! According to a hot-off-the-press-release from the network, the Sick, Sad Trials of Hannah Horvath & Friends will be returning to the air in only 100 days, which is around the same time we’ll all be sick of talking about Ms. Dunham’s $3.7 million book deal.

Great synergy, everyone! Keep up the good work!

From the memo:

The ten-episode season of GIRLS kicks off SUNDAY, JAN. 13 at (9:00-9:30 p.m. ET/PT). Created by and starring Lena Dunham, the series takes a comic look at the assorted humiliations and rare triumphs of a group of girls in their early 20s.

But wait, is it going to be the same assorted humiliations/triumphs of the same group of girls? How do we know they haven’t replaced Marnie with a sassy woman of color (any color), who didn’t go to Oberlin but Bennington, and whose annoying quarter-life crisis involves being totally obsessed with a TV show she constantly critiques because it doesn’t represent her particular life struggle?

Actually, please let that happen in the second season. Or at least show us some topless Shoshanna.
