To the soundtrack of Break Out The Boom-Boom by Robert ToTeras, the new teaser trailer for Season 3 of Girls has come bounding into our lives. Featuring a slew of behind-the-scenes Instagram snaps (they're so modern!), we see Hannah and Marnie in their bikini best (could a trip to The Hamptons be on the cards?), Shoshanna looking pretty couture, plus Hannah and Adam engaging some deep hugging action. Although it doesn’t arrive on our laptops until next year, we decided to collect together everything we know about the new season. As Editor Paul Zucker commented on Twitter a couple of months ago “You will not believe what we have in store.”
1) They’ll Be Getting Bling
Speaking to the Wall Street Journal executive producer, Jenni Konner revealed that the salad days of crappy jobs may be over. “This year, there is a …focus on financial stability. I can’t say much more. It’s an age thing. There’s only so long you can say you just graduated college.” Will Hannah self publish a mummy porn e-book that rakes in the cash? Will Marnie finally embrace her inner power suit and become a corporate lawyer? Will Jemima gets a windfall divorce settlement from sad-eyed Thomas-John? Will Shoshanna bring out a range of scented soaps, shaped like her favourite Sex And The City characters? Watch this space….
2) Romy And Michelle Will Get Resurrected
Of course you will all remember THIS..
Well it looks like Season 3 will see a revival of those crazy, iconic moves. On Twitter Lena Dunham wrote: “Re: A “Romy and Michelle-esque dance sequence” in Season 3, @lenadunham says: I swear to G-d we do!” The evidence is here…
After the experimental bent of some of the episodes in last season, will Girls do a purely musical episode (opening song: "I'm The Mary, You're The Rhoda"). Let’s hope so.
3) Ray Will Be Single And Ready To Mingle
Poor old Ray, eh? At the end of Season 2, he was cheated on and then unceremoniously dumped by Shoshanna. But it looks like things will perk up for him in the next season. Answering questions on Twitter, Lena Dunham wrote: “@allyson_lang: Will Ray get laid more this season?” Don’t wanna spoil anything, but if yr into seeing Ray get laid you will love season 3!” Happy Ray? We can't even imagine...
4) Charlie Is Never Ever, Ever Coming Back
Despite getting back together with Marnie in the final episode, real life Charlie (Christopher Abbott) exited the series in rather shady circumstances. So how will he be written out? With the aid of time travel, according to Executive Producer and all round hero Judd Apatow. On Twitter he wrote: “I think Charlie went to Korea and switched identities with a deceased soldier named Don Draper.” We can’t argue with his snarky logic, but surly if there was a Mad Men/Girls crossover it would involve Peggy? I mean she lives in Brooklyn already, amirite?
5) More Elijah
After his epic hijack of the early episodes of Season Two, we’ll be getting more Elijah in Season Three. “Elijah gets folded into the group more this season,” Andrew Rannells said, adding that he does get to do his first scenes with Adam and Jemima in this series. Also he revealed that: “I’m still encouraging Hannah to make very bad decisions.” Hurrah!
