For all the negative attention surrounding its mono-racial glimpse into privileged Brooklyn bohemia, "Girls" had two important things going for it: solid ratings and the fact that it was funny, smart and poignant. Both those factors (OK, probably more the former, in addition to the support of show backer Judd Apatow) assured it a sophomore run of episodes, which premiere Jan. 13 on HBO. But now, it seems almost certain that Lena Dunham's semi-autobiographical coming-of-age comedy will get an extension into the foreseeable future.

And according to the story, deals for writing staff would follow suit. “We’re looking forward to the launch of Season 2," HB0 told Deadline, adding cryptically, "and hope to have good news shortly thereafter."
