Prepare yourselves for more quirky awkwardness via Lena Dunham.

HBO has renewed Dunham’s series “Girls” for a fifth season, HBO’s president of programming Michael Lombardo said at the New York premiere for Season 4 of the show on Monday.

“Girls,” which also stars Allison Williams, Jemima Kirke, Adam Driver and Zosia Mamet, premieres its fourth season Jan. 11.

The January 2013 Season 3 premiere of “Girls” drew 1.1 million total viewers — a 28 percent jump over the Season 2 premiere, and a series high.

The upcoming season of “Girls” will feature guest stars Ana Gasteyer and “ER” alum Anthony Edwards, who will play the parents of Mamet’s character, Shoshanna.

Natasha Lyonne, Gillian Jacobs, Mar Maron, Zachary Quinto, Jason Ritter, Maude Apatow and Spike Jonze are also on board to appear on the fourth season of the series.
