HBO Sets Premiere Dates For Season 2 Of Girls And Enlightened
Fans have known HBO has had plans for new episodes of Girls and Enlightened in the works for a while. However, the wait is never fun, and its great to put some concrete dates on the schedule for both show’s second season premieres. Season 2 of Enlightened and Season 2 of Girls will both begin airing on Sunday, January 13.
According to TV Line, both programs will produce 10 brand new episodes, but since Girls will kick off the night at 9 p.m. ET, we’ll start there. A slew of guest stars have already been added to the Emmy-nominated show for Season 2, including Rita Wilson and Colin Quinn. With guest stints, as well as Lena Dunham and her gal pals ending Season 1 with plenty of stories left unfinished, Season 2 is shaping up to be even wackier.
Enlightened will follow Girls on Sundays in January, and will begin airing at 9:30 p.m. ET. While I always wish Amy Jellicoe’s show’s episodes were a little longer, they should prove to be a good foil for Girls, which follows women in their twenties. I’m also hoping that a Sunday audiences (instead of last year’s Monday timeslot) will bring more attention to Enlightened, which stars Laura Dern as an executive piecing her life together after a mental breakdown.
If you’d like to get caught up on either series before the upcoming episodes air, Girls: The Complete First Season will hit Blu-ray on December 11, and Enlightened will follow on January 8.
