Whether you like them or not, Lena Dunham and company are currently prepping for the upcoming fourth season of their HBO comedy series Girls. Today, the network released the first teaser for the season, which will arrive next year, though fans will likely be a little disappointed with the dearth of footage.
Essentially, the clip just shows creator/actor/writer/director Dunham, possibly in character as Hannah Horvath, riding her bike and taking a bit of a tumble. Because even though Hannah takes risks and ventures out into the world, it wouldn’t be Girls if she didn’t crash and burn every so often.
Honestly, the clip is more of a reminder to viewers that Girls is still kicking than anything else. It’s also slightly dishonest – production on the fourth season officially wrapped last week, so the show is actually in post-production right now.
On the upcoming fourth season, expect a wealth of guest stars to meet up with Hannah and her circle of friends, which includes Marnie (Allison Williams), Jessa (Jemima Kirke), Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet), Adam (Adam Driver), Ray (Alex Karpovsky) and Elijah (Andrew Rannells, upgraded to a series regular this season). Community actress Gillian Jacobs will recur as a character named Mimi-Rose, while Parenthood‘s Jason Ritter also has a guest spot.
Zachary Quinto (Star Trek Into Darkness), Natasha Lyonne (Orange is the New Black), director Spike Jonze and Zuzanna Szadkowski (Gossip Girl) are all expected to appear.
Girls doesn’t have an official premiere date yet for its fourth season, but we’re expecting it to drop mid-January, as has been the case with past seasons.
