‘Girls’ Season 3 Trailer: Dancing on Graves

Girls 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.
