If pop-culture pervasion translated to ratings, then Girls would probably be competing with a long line of Super Bowls for the most-watched programs ever. We all know that's not the case, but relevance and critical acclaim is enough for HBO to pull the trigger on season three after only a few episodes into season 2. Girls can't cost the network all that much, so it's a low-risk proposition that garners lots and lots of hipster goodwill to balance out all that Game of Thrones fanboy love.

Production is slated to start in March. No premiere date or range has been announced.

But what this all really means is that we're going to see Lena Dunham's naked body about 700 more times in late 2013/early 204.
