HBO recently announced Girls‘ Season 4 premieres on Sunday, January 11. Unlike last year’s super-sized season consisting of 12 episodes, the series returns to its 10-episode format for its fourth. Fan favorite Andrew Rannells finally gets promoted to series regular. It’s about time.

Set to “I Believe” by Nico Vega, the first full-length trailer has dropped. Marnie is still singing and making horrible relationships decisions. Hannah moves to Iowa and loving it. “Iowa’s incredible. We should all move here and start the revolution,” she tells Marnie via Skype. Jessa and Adam get arrested and Shoshannah finds the real world much more bracing than she expected, struggling to find a job. Speaking of Sosh, we get to meet her mother played by SNL alum Ana Gasteyer.

HBO Sets Looking, Girls & Togetherness Premieres

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Mark your calendars folks. Not only do the 72nd annual Golden Globe Awards air on Sunday, January 11, 2015 on NBC, but HBO has a great lineup as well. The network announced the premiere dates for the new seasons of Girls and Looking, plus the series premiere of Togetherness.

Sandwiched in between the returning shows is the network’s new offering Togetherness. From brothers Jay and Mark Duplass, the show follows two couples living under one roof on the fringes of Los Angeles. Brett and Michelle (Mark Duplass, Melanie Lynskey) are struggling to rekindle the spark in their relationship, which has puttered out from the stresses of marriage and children. When Brett’s friend Alex (Steve Zissis) and Michelle’s sister Tina (Amanda Peet) move in with them, the foursome engage in a tragically comedic struggle to follow their personal dreams, while still remaining good friends, siblings and spouses to each other.

Looking returns for its ten-episode second season. Too bad HBO didn’t order more episodes. Last season was over before you knew it. Raúl Castillo, Lauren Weedman and Russell Tovey have all been upgraded to series regulars, joining Jonathan Groff, Frankie J. Alvarez and Murray Bartlett. New additions this year include Mean GirlsDaniel Franzese, Chris Perfetti, Bashir Salahuddin and Jennifer Foster. Congrats to the cast of the HBO dramedy for making it on the Out 100 2014 list.

The Lena Dunham-created series enters its fourth season. “This season of ‘Girls’ is the girls making smarter choices and realizing that life is still hard,” says Dunham. Last we saw Hannah, she got accepted in a Writers’ Workshop in Iowa. With her away from Brooklyn, she’s worried that it will ruin her relationship with Adam. Meanwhile, Marnie (Allison Williams) is once again having problems in the romance area. She’s having an affair with an actor. This season, viewers will finally get to meet Shoshanna’s parents. Check out a recently released promo below giving fans a glimpse at the new season of Girls.

Man Crush: Chris Wood

In: Donovan, Totally GAY!

The other day I re-watched arguably the best Girls episode ever. The one where Hannah and the girls headed to the faux Hamptons and Shoshanna went all Medieval on all their asses. I didn’t think anything could ever top the Bushwick episode but this definitely did.

An added bonus of this episode gave us the gorgeousness that is Chris Wood. He was one of Elijah’s (Andrew Rannells) friends. I’ve had my eye on this stud since he first appeared on The Carrie Diaries during the show’s second season.

Wood is a 2010 graduate of Elon’s acclaimed music theatre program. His other television credits include Major Crimes and Browser. Prior to dabbling in television, Chris played Melchoir in the national tour of Spring Awakening and Joe Hardy in Damn Yankees at Paper Mill Playhouse. Check out several photos of Chris below.

Archie Comics just got a little more gay-friendly. Back in 2012, the publication introduced Riverdale’s first gay teen character, Kevin Keller and now they’ve hired openly-gay Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa as their first ever Chief Creative Officer. Aguirre-Sacasa is a playwright, screenwriter, and comic book writer best known for his work for Marvel Comics and for the television series Glee and Big Love. He recently wrapped the zombie miniseries Afterlife with Archie.

“I just love the characters. I started reading Archie comics when I was a kid, and I’ve just kind of…never stopped. I mean, there was definitely something appealing about how idyllic Riverdale was, and how ‘wholesome’ all the kids were/are — much more so than me and my friends — but I always had a sense: There’s depth and darkness there, too. And an edge, especially in the older stories. I guess I always wondered what was happening between the panels.” – Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa

As part of his new duties, Roberto is penning a new Sabrina The Teenage Witch series. In addition, he was instrumental in bringing Lena Dunham to the fold. The Girls creator has been tapped to write a four-issue Archie miniseries scheduled for 2015. Reportedly, Dunahm’s story will follow Archie and the gang when they run into a new reality show filming in Riverdale. Check out the first illustration below.

“I was an avid Archie collector as a child — conventions, first editions that l kept in plastic sleeves, the whole shebang,” Lena Dunham said in a press release. “It has so much cultural significance but also so much personal significance, and to get to play with these beloved characters is a wild creative opportunity.”

Lena Dunham Heads To Saturday Night Live

In: Donovan, TV Shows

On March 8, Lena Dunham makes her Saturday Night Live debut. I’m actually surprised this hasn’t happened sooner. Perhaps SNL’s hilarious Girls parody featuring Tina Fey is why I’m confused. Remember Fey playing Blerta, the older ‘girl’ from Albania? Epic. I wonder if the NBC show will do another spoof now that they have Lena at their disposal.

Joining Dunham as the night’s musical guests are The National who are also breaking their SNL cherry that night. The group snagged a 2014 Grammy nomination for Best Alternative Album. Their documentary Mistaken For Strangers hits theaters during the last week of March. Relive Fey’s Girls spoof below.

The other day, Miguel’s contribution for Girls Volume 2: All Adventurous Women Do surfaced. Today, we have a previously unreleased gem from Lily Allen. The British pop-songstress obsesses over her man on “L8 CMMR.” Contributing to the HBO series was a no-brainer for Lily. Here’s what she told Rolling Stone about her involvement.

“I think the show is brilliant, so it was more or less a no brainer for me,” Lily Allen tells Rolling Stone. “Greg Kurstin, who produced and co-wrote this track with me, played a few of the new tracks for a friend of his who works on the show. Apparently [music supervisor Manish Raval] loved the songs, and later came back to Greg asking if he could include one of the tracks in an episode.”

If you’re a fan of Allen, you’ll love the new song. Based on the tracks released by Jenny Lewis, Miguel and Lily Allen, the second Girls soundtrack is shaping to be a fantastic compilation. Check out Lily’s latest below.

Like last year, Girls has an accompanying soundtrack to go along with the current season. Some of the show’s finest moments are synonymous with specific tracks. Who could forget Hannah doing cocaine while Icona Pop played in the background or Marnie joining Hannah in a dance to Robyn’s “Dancing On My Own.” It’s a little odd the album release didn’t coincide with the premiere of Season 3. I’m sure it was strategic but whatever the reason, we’re only a week away from the official release of Girls Volume 2: All Adventurous Women Do.

One of the tracks I was looking most forward to was Miguel’s contribution. I’m a huge fan of the “Adorn” singer and apparently so is Lena Dunham. She sought out the R&B singer specifically. Along with making the current season more upbeat, enlisting Miguel was another savvy wise decision by Lena. The end result is a gritty ballad where Miguel’s smooth vocals ooze over the seductive beat. Definitely give “SimpleThings” a listen below. I can’t wait to see exactly where this song ends up on the HBO show.

Jennifer Lopez Debuts ‘Girls’ Featuring DJ Mustard

In: Donovan, Music

After her third EDM collaboration with Pitbull failed to live up to its predecessors, Jennifer Lopez is wisely going a different musical route for her upcoming 10th studio album. Not to be confused with the Chris Brown-penned “Same Girl” she teased last week, “Girls” is a collaboration with Los Angeles-based DJ Mustard. The production is slick, sexy and laid-back. Jenny from the block is back and better than ever.

“At the end of the night, girls just wanna have fun/ ‘Cause we don’t really care,” J.Lo sings on the track. Don’t forget the gays as well, Miss Lopez. We like to have a gay old time as well. The collaboration came together when DJ Mustard tweeted out “Yo somebody tell @JLo I got some bangers waiting for her !!!!!”, to which La Lopez responded “Where they at?” Check out the fruits of their labor below.
