Forget that “teaser for a teaser for a trailer” stuff – though Lena Dunham said on Instagram that the trailer for Girls’ third season would drop Sunday, HBO actually posted it online today. Even better news: It looks pretty funny!
Fans (and/or hatewatchers) may remember that last season, Girls got dark enough to make some viewers wonder whether the show was even a comedy anymore. From the lighthearted tone of this trailer, though, it seems as though season 3 may mark a return to season 1-style levity. Unless, of course, it’s all a clever ruse, and the promo’s meant to lull us into a false sense of security before another 10 episodes of harrowing emotional misery and eardrum-puncturing. Either way, at least we’ll get more Andrew Rannells this year.
The third season of Girls premieres with back-to-back episodes Jan. 12 at 10 p.m. on HBO.
