Girls Lena Dunham Adam Driver

Here we go again. Let's cue up the Criterion Collection whiners about "Tiny Furniture" or those others who feel Lena Dunham hasn't paid whatever ephemeral dues she needs to in order to qualify for the acclaim she has earned thus far at the age of 26. Haters gonna hate, but frankly Dunham is doing just fine without those folks, and less than a year after "Girls" made a serious splash on HBO, season 2 is on the way.

The first images from the upcoming series of episodes with Hannah, Marnie, Jessa (where's her husband?) and Adam (broken leg, after being hit by a car in the season finale) all back are here via EW. And there's lots of questions to be answered in the next batch of shows, including what remains of Hannah and Marnie's relationship and whether or not Shoshanna and Ray are still together. ''You know how an infant doubles its weight in the first few weeks of its life?'' Dunham told EW. ''That's what's happening to these girls right now.'' 

John Slattery, Patrick Wilson and Bob Balaban are all slated for guest appearances and there are likely more surprises under the hood. "Girls" returns on January 13, 2013.
