Allison Williams Promises ‘Lighthearted’ Season 3 For ‘Girls’

Things got kind of dark during the second season of “Girls,” but star Allison Williams promises that’s all going to change next season.

“I think it’s a very funny season. I think it’s pretty lighthearted, but also it’s just the third year in a row you get to see these girls, so I think people have gotten to know us pretty well by now and so you get to see different dimensions of all of us,” she explained to MTV News on the red carpet at the VMAs, where she looked quite fierce in her white dress.

Among the shakeups next season: Allison’s Marnie will have to say goodbye for good to her on-screen love, Charlie, now that Christopher Abbott is no longer on the show. And she promises that that break-up will lead to some good TV.

“I was surprised, but I was not at all worried because our writers are so funny and what they’ve come up with is so much fun and so excellent,” she said, noting that Marnie might have to mend herself a bit before getting back on the dating scene.

And from the sounds of it, Marnie shouldn’t look to bad-boy artist Booth Jonathan for a good rebound. “[She needs] someone who respects her but she would have to start respecting herself,” she said.

And while season two had many a memorable moment, one of the best had to be Marnie’s slowed-down cover of Kanye West’s “Stronger.” Would she be down to cover more Yeezy next season and if so what song? “Every single one. Every single one,” she enthused.

“Girls” returns in 2014.
