‘Girls’ Season 4 Preview: Marnie Threatens to Rap

Girls Season 4 First Look

You can take the girl out of Brooklyn, but you can’t take the Brooklyn out of the girl. As revealed in HBO’s new Girls Season 4 preview, Hannah (Lena Dunham) is now a student in Iowa — but she’s still the same old Hannah, endlessly impressed with her own progress toward maturity.

Meanwhile, the girls back in New York haven’t changed a lot either. Marnie (Allison Williams), for example, continues to believe in her musical career no matter how obvious it is to everyone else that it’s a terrible idea. Check in with Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet), Jessa (Jemima Kirke), and the rest of the gang in the Girls Season 4 preview after the jump.

‘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.

As devotees of Louie and Sherlock are sighing over extralong gaps between seasons, Girls fans are enjoying some schedule shuffling in the opposite direction. Although the first season of Girls debuted in the spring, Season 2′s kicking off a little earlier than expected in January 2013. Which means the marketing push starts now.

HBO’s already offered up a not-terribly-revealing teaser and a handful of stills from the upcoming season. Now they’re ramping up the campaign with the first full trailer, which features a nice mix of fresh and familiar faces. Hannah (Lena Dunham) and her usual gang are all here, along with returning guest stars like Jorma Taccone and Chris O’Dowd and newcomers like Donald Glover, Patrick Wilson, and Rita Wilson. Watch it after the jump.

Well, it’s about time. A couple of months ago, we got an amusing first teaser for HBO’s Veep, and last week saw the release of a short featurette from the set. But it’s only now that we’re finally getting a real look at the series, a political satire of contemporary American politics from In the Loop director Armando Iannucci.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus stars as a senator who wins the office of vice president of the United States, only to find that the job isn’t at al what she expected. Also starring are Anna Chlumsky, Matt Walsh, Sufe Bradshaw, and Tony Hale (looks like all that schooling finally paid off for Buster).

In addition, the network has unveiled another new trailer for Girls, Lena Dunham (Tiny Furniture) and Judd Apatow‘s comedy about twentysomething women trying to make it in the big, bad city. Watch the videos after the jump.

If CBS’ 2 Broke Girls didn’t quite prove to be edgy enough for you, perhaps HBO’s thematically similar new series Girls will fit the bill. Created by Lena Dunham (Tiny Furniture) and executive produced by Dunham, Judd Apatow, and Jenni Konner, the comedy follows a group of 20something women — aspiring writer Hannah (Dunham) and her BFFs (Jemima Kirke from Tiny Furniture and Brian Williams’ daughter Allison Williams) — as they struggle to make it in the big city. Watch the first trailer after the jump.
