Critic: Girls Is Back and in 'Excellent Shape' | Girls, Lena Dunham


Girls Returns with Season 3 in 'Excellent Shape,' Says PEOPLE's TV Critic

It's not clear whether HBO's Girls will ever achieve the perfection of its first season: You can't expect lightning to hit the same spot twice, whether in nature or the hipster hothouse of Brooklyn, N.Y. But Lena Dunham's contemporary comedy of manners – following the lives of four young women in a world of sex, ambition and artisanal coffee – returned Sunday night in excellent shape.

This was just a few days after a viral controversy erupted: A critic at the Television Critics Association's conference asked if Dunham really needed to be nude so often on the show. This in turn was interpreted as asking why someone with a body like Dunham's needed to be nude so often. It could be interpreted as implying the further question of why someone with a body like Dunham's should be naked instead of someone with a body like costar Allison Williams's.

If this is a concern for you, the question will not be resolved. Dunham, as writer, complainer and joke-dispenser Hannah Horvath, still likes to peel off her clothes, at least judging from the first six episodes of the new season.

Well, that looks like it was one hell of a party.

The season 3 poster for HBO's hit Girls shows Hannah (Lena Dunham) and her friends at the end of what looks to have been a big night – with beer bottles and pizza boxes strewn on the floor.

The tagline is "Happily Whatever After," but a look at the new season hints that maybe the girls are finally getting it together – or not.

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.

"It's really liberating," she says as she sits down on the ground, "to say no to s––– you hate."

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.
