HBO wants more 'Girls'

Although its second season won't even begin airing until January, HBO is already making plans for a third season of female-centric comedy Girls.

While promoting his new film This Is 40, Girls executive producer Judd Apatow indicated that the show would soon be renewed for another season already. During a video interview for The DP/30 Channel, Apatow stated that they were about to start shooting the third season of Girls.

Meanwhile, HBO is negotiating a deal to bring back executive producer Jenni Konner, who has been co-running the show with creator/writer/director/executive producer/star Lena Dunham. Once Konner has agreed to return, the show will move on and make deals with writers and other staff in anticipation of a pending renewal.

A common practice in the television industry, many networks and studios negotiate if-come deals with writers and producers of their hot shows prior to the official renewal announcement. That way, they can lay claim to in-demand writers and be prepared to launch production when the show is picked up for an additional season.

In a statement, HBO said, "We're looking forward to the launch of Season 2 and hope to have good news shortly thereafter." The second season of Girls will premiere on January 13.

Are you looking forward to multiple seasons of Girls? Will it be the next Sex And The City?
