HBO has released an official Season 2 trailer for “Girls,”
and it promises the same delivery of humor, failure, and raunch
(wrapped in a perfectly awkward little package) that made the series a favorite
The two-minute clip breezes by — it’s an upbeat change in tone from the contemplative ending of the Season 1 finale.
Hannah (Lena Dunham) is back with a vengeance, goofing up with awful wardrobe choices, plenty of quintessential Hannah-dancing, and smooching random guys. She’s doing her best to phase out Adam (Adam Driver), who apparently achieves stalker status in Season 2 (guess his neuroses aren’t limited to his deviant sexual predilections). “My affection for you cannot be repressed,” he says to Hannah.
Meanwhile, Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) is exuding more confidence — and more naive self-help one-liners — after losing her V Card last season. “I may be deflowered,” she declares, “But I’m not devalued.” Her cousin Jessa (Jemima Kirke), on the other hand, is busy adjusting to shotgun-married life, and still seems to be completely content with her special brand of bohemian temerity.
Marnie (Allison Williams) has officially entered quarter-life crisis mode. She’ll be doing some soul-searching this season, with a bit of help from her roommate, Elijah (Andrew Rannells), and her mom, (Rita Wilson). And hey, sexy artist guy (Jorma Taccone) is back, and this time it looks like his deadpan come-ons actually coax Marnie into bed.
The trailer features Ellie Goulding’s euphoric track “Anything Could Happen,” which is perfectly appropriate, considering these four ladies. Season 2 looks like a blast — is it January 13 yet?
