The “adventurous women” of HBO’s Girls will return for a second season of New York City hijinx on January 13, according to TVLine.com. As previously announced, the new season will feature two-time Tony nominee Patrick Wilson (The Full Monty), as well as Colin Quinn (Long Story Short) and Rita Wilson (Chicago) in guest starring roles. The series, which is written and created by the show’s star, Lena Dunham, first premiered on HBO on April 15.
Described as the anti-Sex and the City, Girls tells the story of four female friends living in Brooklyn who are trying to figure out their lives. The first season of Girls featured multiple appearances by Broadway alums, including series regular Adam Driver (Man and Boy) and guest stars Andrew Rannells (The Book of Mormon), Becky Ann Baker (Good People), Peter Scolari (Magic/Bird), Skylar Astin (Spring Awakening), Christina Kirk (Clybourne Park) and Christopher Abbot (The House of Blue Leaves).
Girls won a 2012 Emmy Award for Outstanding Casting in a Comedy Series, and earned four additional nominations, including Oustanding Comedy Series. In addition to Dunham, Girls stars Allison Williams, Jemima Kirke and Zosia Mamet (the daughter of Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Mamet).
