Lena Dunham (Sort Of) Takes A Spill In This Girls Season 4 Teaser

As the writer, producer, director, and star of HBO's Girls, Lena Dunham does it all.
Well, almost all.

In our first official look at the show's fourth season, we get a glimpse at Hannah's post-New York life as a student at Iowa's Writer Workshop. The clip opens with Dunham gently riding a bike through a bucolic campus. Thank goodness she has her helmet on because things go awry when the bike grinds to a halt and Dunham tips over. Or, so we think.
Instead of teasing anything about the upcoming season's top-secret plot, we're given a glimpse into the magic of television as the fourth wall comes crashing down. "We're ready for you Ms. Dunham," a crew member shouts. It's then we realize it was never actually Dunham falling off her bike, but a stunt double.
It's a clever little bit to alert the world that yes, Girls is back in production. That's good news for those of us who can't wait for a season that will include Spike Jonze, Maude Apatow, Gillian Jacobs, Jason Ritter, Zachary Quinto, and Obvious Child's Jake Lacy, whose role — like the rest of his fellow guest stars — remains a closely guarded mystery.
In fact, the only thing we really know about season four's plot is that at some point, Hannah will fall off her bike. Check out the proof below.
