Earlier today, HBO announced the return premiere date for their smash-hit critically-acclaimed comedy 'Girls,' as well as the series premieres for both 'Looking' and 'True Detective.' These shows are each highly anticipated, so let's walk you through each:
The third season of 'Girls' debuts on Sunday, Jan. 12, 2014 at 10:00 p.m. Stars Lena Dunham, Jemima Kirke, Zosia Mamet, and Allison Williams are all returning and are sure to be nominated for a whole boatload of awards once again. The series is returning with an hour-long premiere, however this will be followed by weekly half-hour episodes from that point on. 'Girls' is an Emmy Award-winning series created by star Lena Dunham about the assorted humiliations and rare triumphs of a group of girls in their 20s.
The end of the Second Season saw Hannah reconnecting with Adam... but will it last?
Starring Frankie J. Alvarez, Murray Bartlett and Jonathan Groff, 'Looking' revolves around three friends in San Francisco who explore the fun and sometimes overwhelming options available to a new generation of gay men. Executive produced by Andrew Haigh ('Weekend') and Sarah Condon ('Bored to Death')
'Looking' has been in the news lately for adding Russell Tovey, star of 'Being Human,' to the cast. Also, Scott Bakula ('Behind the Candelabra') will reportedly appear in a guest starring capacity. There is a lot to look forward to with this show, which debuts Sunday, Jan. 19, 2014 at 10:30 p.m.
I'm definitely looking forward to this one.
When HBO first announced 'True Detective,' all that they needed to say was "Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson." These two actors are huge names with several accolades and very impressive filmogrophies. In 'True Detective,' they each play Louisiana Detectives whose lives collide and entwine during a 17-year hunt for a killer, ranging from the original investigation of a bizarre murder in 1995 to the reopening of the case in 2012. Michelle Monaghan also stars as Harrelson's character Hart’s wife, Maggie, who struggles to keep her family together as the men in her life become locked in a cycle of violence and obsession.
The combination of a stellar cast with a mysterious plotline that spans nearly two decades has got me salivating already. 'True Detective' debuts Sunday, Jan. 12, 2014, at 9 p.m.--one hour prior to the season premiere of 'Girls.'
There you have it--mark your calendars and get ready for another great season from HBO.
