NYC's hippest gathered at Lincoln Center on Monday night to celebrate the upcoming third season of the HBO hit, Girls. After two seasons of heartbreak, awkward sex, unemployment, and a short episode of OCD, we're pumped to see what happens next (and how we can continue to compare it to our own lives over brunch).

Lena Dunham spoke to ABC's Good Morning America (opens in new tab) about what fans can expect. "Hannah is in sort of a better place than we've ever seen her before. She's in a committed relationship, she has a book deal, and she's promised to really put in the work as opposed to just sort of acting as though wanting to be a writer is the same as being a writer," Dunham said. "But, of course, this is Girls, so things can't stay very good for very long."

While the celebs were celebrating in NYC, HBO hosted eight "Girls Night Out" events in different cities across the U.S. (opens in new tab), which included a live feed of the premiere red carpet and a sneak peek at some of the upcoming season.
