Girls Season 3 Trailer Released

The Girls are back in town. Well, actually, they seem to be out of town quite a bit.

The season 3 trailer of the HBO hit show is out (watch below) and it opens with Hannah – played by writer, producer and star Lena Dunham – complaining to her on-again boyfriend Adam about a roadside hike through the country.

Set to "Ways to Go" by Grouplove, the preview of the new season, which returns Jan. 12 with back-to-back episodes, shows Hannah, her best friends and the men in their lives doing what they do best: struggling to grow up and live the good life in New York City. But they seem to be having some fun along the way – including a lot of awkward dancing and a trip to the beach in Greenport, N.Y.
