Lena Dunham Reveals ‘Girls’ Return Date on Instagram
Rather than spread the news in an interview or through a press release, Girls creator Lena Dunham took to her Instagram account to announce the return date for her acclaimed HBO dramedy. Along with the phrase “We’re comin’ right back #GIRLS,” Dunham posted a selfie photo that reads “1/12/14 10 p.m. EST” scrawled (possibly in lipstick) on a mirror.

The show’s third season has been highly anticipated for months, partially due to shake-ups within the cast.

Despite its many controversies, Girls has earned consistently strong reviews in its first two seasons. The series earned five Emmy nominations at this year’s ceremony, including nods for Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series (for Dunham) and Outstanding Comedy Series.
Though the show won’t be back on TV until January, HBO recently gave fans a taste of the third season with this promotional teaser.
