We’ve known for some time that Girls season 2 would premiere in January, but today we’re getting an exact date!
Creator and star Lena Dunham (who plays Hannah) took to her official Twitter account to reveal that Sunday, January 13, 2013 will be when we’ll see our favorite line up of girls back on HBO:
Jan 13th 2013 mami! RT @scherryyr: WHEN IS GIRLS SEASON 2 COMING?!

UPDATE: HBO issued a press release confirming the date. They also announced that Enlightened season 2 will premiere the same day.
The tweet was in response to a fan, so it seems like the particular date reveal wasn’t part of any planned announcement. We still have a good wait until the premiere, so quell your thirst by enjoying this season 2 teaser featuring all of the ladies.
One newcomer to the show for season 2 is Patrick Wilson. The Gifted Man actor will play a doctor in his 40s that lives next door to Hannah’s work. Rumor has it that Wilson’s character may be a promising love interest.
At Sunday night’s Emmys, Dunham fawned over her 39-year-old costar and revealed a steamy tidbit about how we may be seeing Wilson soon.
“You’re going to have the opportunity to see Patrick Wilson play ping-pong in a not-totally-dressed state,” she said. “He’s hot as… I want to say something classy but all I can come up with is he’s hot as f—. And he’s a very nice person too. And a devoted father, which is such a sexy quality.”
Last week the rising actress signed a $3.5 million book deal with Random House which will retell her life story (so far). Girls’ premiere season received four primetime Emmy nominations but did not win any of them last month.
