Lena Dunham returns as the third, highly anticipated season of her Emmy®- and Golden Globe-winning comedy series Girls comes to Blu-ray™ and DVD from December 10th. Following the misadventures of a group of 20-something friends in NYC, the series centers on Hannah Horvath (Dunham) and her mess of anxieties, insecurities and uncertainty as she approaches her mid-20s. In Season 3, Hannah is now in a committed relationship with Adam (Adam Driver), and the two are settling into a newfound domesticity in Hannah's apartment. Hannah is also working on rehabilitating her writing career and concentrating on delivering her eBook to her eccentric publisher. Meanwhile, Marnie (Allison Williams) is adjusting to life after a sudden and traumatic breakup with Charlie and meticulously working to achieve the life she feels she deserves. Nearing graduation, newly single Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) masterminds a plan to create a healthy (at least on paper) balance between partying and her studies. And, continuing her streak of disrupting the lives of those around her, Jessa (Jemima Kirke) resurfaces and strikes up an ambiguous friendship with a flamboyant father figure.

Over this season's 12 episodes, the friendships between the girls are more volatile than ever, proving that female friendship is its own kind of romance. As always, love, life, sex and death can all interrupt the circuitous path to adulthood – and will arrive when you're least prepared.

One of HBO's signature comedy series, Girls premiered in 2012 to an overwhelming reception by critics and fans, receiving five 2013 Emmy® nominations and winning two 2013 Golden Globe Awards: for Best TV Series, Musical or Comedy and for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy (Dunham).

At the end of Season 2, Hannah was on the brink of collapse due to a flare up of her OCD and anxieties from her looming eBook deadline, with Adam coming to her shirtless rescue; Marnie's life seemed back on track, having managed to win back the newly-successful Charlie; Shoshanna split with Ray (Alex Karpovsky) after concluding that her optimism was incompatible with his dark outlook; and Jessa was MIA once again, having abandoned Hannah on their visit to Jessa's father's upstate house. The new season finds the girls a little older and wiser but still coping with the demands of being young and (relatively) independent in an often-intimidating metropolis.
