HBO has renewed ‘Girls’ for a third season, according to Judd Apatow
The Emmy-award winning Luna Dunham comedy has not even begun airing its second season (January 13 is not too far away, everyone calm down) but Girls EP and all-round entertainment magnate Judd Apatow has confirmed that work on the show’s triennial instalment is well underway.
Having received the get go from HBO, Apatow revealed (and subsequently induced unprecedented levels of joy to twentysomething-battling-a-quarter-life-crisis females everywhere) that “we’re about to shoot the third season of Girls, in an interview promoting his upcoming This is 40 film.
Apatow also noted that Girls star and creator Dunham contributed to his latest film, “She’s such a great writer and creative person, she helped me with my script, so we’re trading scripts back and forth. I get inspired by reading her work every week.” Divine!
Filming for Season 2 wrapped in September, and of the show’s anticipated next chapter, a HBO spokesperson said, “we’re looking forward to the launch of Season 2 and hope to have good news shortly thereafter.” Well, looks like we’ve already got it. Thanks, HBO. Every over-privileged university graduate who lacks direction/ is experiencing some sort of existential calamity can now be assured their experience is “normal” and will continue to be validated in half-hour episodes. Yes.
