Like most series that find their way to HBO, the new comedyGirls has already been renewed for a second season. That season is in fact already in principal photography in New York City, meaning we may get to see the series with new episodes by the end of the year. Critically loved, one of the biggest complaints happens to be that the series is not diverse enough as the series basically focuses on a group of white people trying to “survive” in NYC. Now, a new set photo from the Season 2 shoot has been taken, and it seems a very interesting actor has come onboard to recitify a more assorted cast.
The New York Post via (Vulture) snapped the following set photo with Girls was in the midst of having camera rolling, and it turns out Community star Donald Glover is taking his time off before the hit NBC comedy’s fourth season to film another stint on Girls:
In an interview with NPR, Lena Dunham, pictured above who also creates, writes, and stars in the series, spoke on the controversy by saying “Now we have the opportunity to do a second season and, believe me, that will be remedied. I’m really excited to introduce new characters into the world of the show. Some of them are great actors of color.”
Glover has gained a great amount of popularity due to his triple threat ability as both a comedic actor, stand-up comedian, and rapper who has released his first paid album in stores late last year. Under the moniquer Childish Gambino, Glover has been touring all over the country, which is only the crowning achievement to the number of independent albums, EPs, and mixtapes he has released over the years to his fans for absolutely no cost.
Girls has maintained ratings stability over it’s first season run so far, with five of 10 schedule episodes already aired. The second season has not yet received a premiere date, but will also have a year of 10 episodes. Produced by Judd Apatow, and co-starring Allison Williams, Jemima Kirke, Zosia Mamet, and Adam Driver, the comedy airs every Sunday night at 10:30 PM on HBO.
