Girls has received a trailer for its third season.
Season three of Lena Dunham‘s award-winning comedy will premiere on the US premium cable network HBO on January 12, 2014 with a pair of back-to-back episodes. The UK start date has yet to be confirmed by Sky Atlantic, but the British broadcaster chose to show episodes of season two just 24 hours after they premiered in the US earlier this year.

Adam Driver as Adam, Andrew Rannells as Elijah and Alex Karpovsky as Ray also feature in the 1:26 long promo for the show.
The new season will feature 12 half-hour episodes – two more than in previous seasons. Dunham confirmed on September 6 that production had wrapped on the new batch of episodes. Over the summer HBO released an Instagram-style video teaser for the new season – watch it here.
Created, directed and written by Dunham, the show has been a major hit since it debuted last year (2012) and took home two prizes at this January’s Golden Globe Awards: ‘Best Television Series – Comedy or Musical’ and ‘Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series’ – Comedy or Musical’ for Dunham.
