HBO’s hit show Girls returns for a fourth season on Sunday, January 11th, and a new trailer gives fans a peek into what the next season has in store for the group of friends navigating through the ups and downs of “the real world.”
Last season left off with Hannah (Lena Dunham) struggling to make her life in New York work both professionally and romantically with her on-again, off-again boyfriend Adam. Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) learned that she was three credits short of graduating and attempted to get Ray back, Marnie (Allison Williams) kissed Desi even though he has a girlfriend and Jessa (Jemima Kirke) is last seen helping her boss Beadie take her own life.
In the trailer above, featuring the song “I Believe” by Nico Vega, Hannah tells Marnie that she’s finally “made the right decision, which is a totally new sensation” by moving to Iowa to participate in the Iowa’s Writer’s Workshop, even though Adam doesn’t seem to be thrilled with the decision. Marnie is going through some love troubles and working on her music, Jessa and Adam get arrested and Shoshannah is trying (unluckily) to find a job.
Since the Season Three finale aired in March, Dunham, the show’s creator and director, has been promoting her recently released memoir Not That Kind of Girl. The star has recently come under scrutiny for what some have deemed sexual abuse of her sister when Dunham was 7, though the author has vehemently denied those allegations. After taking to Twitter to speak out against her critics, she has since issued a statement saying that she is “dismayed over the recent interpretation of events described in my book.”
