HBO announced today that it has renewed both of its new comedies Girls and Veep for a second season. Girls has garnered a gross audience to date of 3.8 million viewers, while Veep is close behind with 3.7 million viewers.
Both series, which have been a hit with critics and audiences alike, have been given a second season commitment of ten episodes each. These episodes will debut spring of 2013.
Girls, which returns with the all-new Episode 1.04: Hanna's Diary on May 5th, follows friends Hannah, Marnie, Jessa and Shoshanna as they try to figure life out. They've been living in New York for a couple of years, but they're still not sure what they want: From boys, from each other, from themselves. And things aren't getting any clearer. Created by and starring Lena Dunham (Tiny Furniture), Girls takes a comic look at the assorted humiliations and rare triumphs of a group of girls in their early 20s.
Veep, which returns with the all-new Episode 1.03: Catherine on May 6th, stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Selina Meyer, who becomes vice president, only to discover the job is nothing like she expected, but everything she was warned about.
