Will smarter “Girls” be just as fun?

HBO Girls Season 4 preview Ryan Berenz

“This season of Girls is the girls making smarter choices and realizing that life is still hard,” says Lena Dunham of her hit HBO comedy, which returns for Season 4 on Sunday, Jan. 11, at 9pm ET/PT.

Smarter choices? This is still Girls, right?

Season 4 finds Hannah (Lena Dunham) trying to prove herself as a writer and struggling with critical peers at the Iowa Writers’ Workshop. Her love for Adam (Adam Driver), who has become a selfish diva since landing a Broadway role, complicates things. Marnie (Allison Williams) has a burgeoning music career and romance with Desi (Ebon Moss-Bachrach). Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) can’t find a job after graduation. And Jessa (Jemima Kirke) gets arrested, which should knock some sense into her, but since this is Jessa, it won’t.

Season 4 includes appearances by Gillian Jacobs (Community), Jason Ritter (Parenthood), Zachary Quinto (Star Trek), Marin Ireland (The Divide) and Aidy Bryant (Saturday Night Live).
