Lena Dunham‘s Girls has had its share of notable guest starring roles: Patrick Wilson as Joshua, June Squibb as Grandma Flo, Donald Glover as Sandy, Gaby Hoffman as Caroline Sackler, Chris O’Dowd as Thomas-John, Colin Quinn as Ray’s cranky boss, John Cameron Mitchell as Hannah’s editor and Rita Wilson as a believably uptight mother to Marnie. HBO has already signed quite a few bigger name guest stars for Season 4 of the comedy series. The list so far includes Gillian Jacobs as Mimi-Rose, Jason Ritter as Scott, Zachary Quinto as unannounced and Natasha Lyonne as Rickey. Today we learn that filmmaker Spike Jonze has been added to that list. Learn more about Spike Jonze Girls guest starring role on, after the jump.

Maybe you skipped the two-episode return of Girls last night because you were watching the Globes. Or maybe you missed it because you have neither an HBO subscription nor the password to a friend’s HBO Go account. Whatever your excuse, there’s an easy, immediate fix for the tragic lack of Brooklyn 20something angst in your life.
The network has just posted the first two full episodes of Season 3 online, and you can watch them for free right now. Hit the jump to find out how.

Hannah Hovarth may be kind of a screwup, but the show around her certainly isn’t. HBO confirmed today that it has renewed Girls for a fourth season, three days before the start of its third season. That’s an even faster renewal than it got last year, when HBO announced Season 3 two episodes into Season 2.
Season 4 will shoot this spring, to air sometime in 2015. There’s no official word yet on how many episodes it’ll consist of, but we’re guessing it’ll have 12 like Season 3 did. (Seasons 1 and 2 were ten episodes each.)
In the meantime, Season 3 should have plenty to keep us busy. A just-released clip from the Season 3 premiere, “Females Only,” offers a taste of where the main characters are at this point in their lives. Check it out after the jump.

2013 was a pretty great year for television, and from what we’ve seen 2014 looks plenty promising too. Today, we’ve got trailers for new seasons of two very different critical favorites, BBC America’s Orphan Black and HBO’s Girls, plus a peek at an intriguing new show, AMC’s Revolutionary War drama Turn. Check ‘em all out after the jump.
For a comedy, Girls‘ second season was pretty damn grim. Not meth empire / zombie apocalypse grim, perhaps, but dark nonetheless. Jessa (Jemima Kirke) skipped town, Marnie (Allison Williams) got fired, Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) struggled with her first real relationship, and Hannah (Lena Dunham) had a full-on nervous breakdown. But it looks like their fortunes are changing for the better in Season 3.
The first full-length trailer feels like a return to the lighter tone of Season 1, in contrast to the melancholy of Season 2. All of the women are still works in progress — that’s why we love them — but they seem to be better off than they were the last time we saw them. As Marnie puts it, “I am okay. I may not seem okay and I may not be okay now, but I am, like, okay.” Watch the trailer after the jump.

After surviving a tumultuous Season 2, the girls of Girls will be back for a third go-round this winter. HBO announced today that the comedy will premiere January 12, 2014 with two back-to-back episodes, starting at 10:00 PM. Creator and star Lena Dunham broke the news in a way that’d make her character proud: via a cute Instagram pic, which you can see after the jump.
The established hit will be bookended in its third season by two new shows. January 12 also brings the debut of True Detective, a rural crime drama directed by Cary Fukunaga (Jane Eyre) and starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson.
And starting January 19, the second half of the 10 o’clock hour will be filled by Looking, from Weekend director Andrew Haigh. The series follows the exploits of three young-ish gay men living in San Francisco.

HBO is well-known for original dramas, but HBO comedies are pretty good too. Two of the more popular ones are returning soon, and new videos have been posted to tease the new seasons. First up is Danny McBride and Jody Hill‘s Eastbound and Down which will begin its fourth and final season on September 29. Then there’s Lena Dunham‘s Girls, which doesn’t come back until early 2014. That teaser is a bit less formal, but very clever and cool – which is the niche that show has certainly carved for itself.
Fans of either show should check out the videos below. Read More »
