By Tim Kenneally

LOS ANGELES ( - Lena Dunham and her "Girls" will be back for another season of wry musings about the state of modern urban femininity in January.

The 10-episode second season of "Girls" will premiere January 13 at 9 p.m., HBO said Monday, confirming a tweet that star/creator Dunham had sent earlier.

HBO also said that the Laura Dern drama "Enlightened," about an ambitious executive at a global conglomerate who vows to live a more enlightened existence after a humiliating public breakdown, will kick off its new season immediately following the "Girls" return, on January 13 at 9:30. "Enlightened," which is executive-produced by Mike White, who also writes and co-stars in the series, has also been given the go-ahead for 10 episodes.
