Girls: Returning to HBO January 13 at 9 PM

This January the amazing HBO series ‘Girls’ will returning for it’s second season. Last season Girls was nominated for 5 Emmy’s and everyone and their mom is expecting another amazing season. Girls, if you’ve been living under a rock for the past year, follows four newly graduated women in New York City. The issues they face are honest and relatable for any twenty-something-girl. From struggling to find a job during the recession to hookups so awkward you can’t do anything but laugh and cover your eyes in embarrassment.

This season we find Hannah (played by the writer of the series Lena Dunham) trying to find the “kind, sexy, responsible boyfriend” she’s always wanted, a “deflowered” Shoshanna, a single and lost Marnie and a newly married Jessa.
