Has HBO gone ahead and greenlit a third season of "Girls" before the second one has even aired? Either that or Lena Dunham is making some very expensive home movies, but according to producer Judd Apatow work is beginning soon on a third season of the hit show.

The writer/director is beginning to make the rounds for his forthcoming "This Is 40," and recently dropped in on Dave Poland for an extensive interview. As their chat wound down, Apatow revealed what he's up to next on his always busy calendar. "We're about to shoot the third season of 'Girls' -- season 2 starts in January -- and I'm producing 'Anchorman 2' which shoots in March," he said. Uh, okay. It doesn't get much more clear than that, and with new episodes around the corner, surely HBO will make some kind of formal announcement soon.

Meanwhile, Apatow's update on "Anchorman 2" is intriguing. The film has been promoted with a 2013 release date -- possibly Christmas -- but a March would require a very fast turnaround. Is it still possible? Sure. But let's hope everyone is given plenty of time to riff, improv and generally be hilarious. We've waited this long for the return of Ron Burgundy, so let's give him room to play. Until we know more, watch the full interview with Apatow below.
