Variety reports that the award winning HBO series Girls has been renewerd for a third season. The news was revealed by the show's star and executive producer Lena Dunham on a podcast earlier in the week. Said the recent Golden Globe winning actress, "We're starting season three at the end of March. I'm so excited."

Season 2 of the HBO drama launched on January 13th. The premiere episode delivered 866,000 viewers in its initial 9 p.m. broadcast and 1.6 million viewers over three airings. At this month's Golden Globe Awards, the show picked up prizes for best TV comedy and best lead comedy actress.

Dunham, who also pens several of the episodes, told host Alex Trebek that the new season would film at New York's Silvercup Studios, the stage currently occupied by exiting NBC sitcom 30 Rock.

Created by and starring Lena Dunham ("Tiny Furniture"), the show is a comic look at the assorted humiliations and rare triumphs of a group of Girls in their early 20s. Dunham wrote and directed the pilot of the series, which she executive produces along with Judd Apatow and Jenni Konner. The cast also includes Jemima Kirke, Allison Williams, ZOSIA MAMET, Adam Driver and Alex Karpovsky. Shot in New York, the ten-episode second season premieres in January 2013.
