Season four of "Girls" has yet to hit the airwaves, but HBO has already renewed the series for a fifth season.

HBO president Michael Lombardo made the renewal announcement Monday night during an event at the Museum of Natural History in New York City, where the network hosted a screening of the fourth season premiere. HBO later confirmed Lombardo's announcement.

According to Paste, cast members revealed that the new season will begin filming sometime this spring, and is set to debut on HBO sometime in 2016. No word yet on how many episodes are expected.

"Girls," starring Lena Dunham, Allison Williams, Zosia Mamet, and Jemima Kirke, returns for its fourth season on Sunday, January 11 at 9 p.m.
