'Girls' Season 5 Is Already in the Works, Because HBO Clearly Has Great Taste in TV
Though season 4 of HBO's highly acclaimed comedy Girls hasn't even premiered yet, it looks like the premium cable network is already once again proving its excellent taste in television programming (aka, network cable networks — please take note): According to various sources including Vulture and CBS News, HBO has renewed Girls for season 5, ahead of the show's season 4 premiere scheduled for this Sunday. The announcement was made by HBO president Michael Lombardo at the show's season 4 premiere party, which was held at the American Museum of Natural History in NYC on Monday night.
Just because the renewal announcement was made, however, don't expect any spoilers just yet — according to EW, series star/creator/a voice in a generation Lena Dunham and longtime executive producer Jenni Konner are set to begin work on season 5 beginning Tuesday (also, you know, it might be a more beneficial use of your time to focus on just enjoying season 4, which already looks amazing judging by promos). However, they did reveal at the premiere party that the first two episodes have been roughly drafted, which is exciting news in and of itself.
Girls season 4 will premiere its first episode on Jan. 11 at 9 PM on HBO.
