J. Crew's creative director Jenna Lyons made her small-screen debut in the new trailer for season three of HBO's Girls, bringing fashion sense with a Devil Wears Prada-like attitude to the role of Hannah's new boss.

"I see you found the snack room as well," Lyon's character shoots at Hannah in the trailer.

Season 3 of Girls features an unexpected cast change, as Christopher Abbott, Marnie's love interest Charlie Dattolo, left the show abruptly after reportedly disagreeing with Dunham over creative elements.

Almost six months later, Abbott opened up about his departure to The New York Times.

“The world that Lena wrote was very real, especially in New York,” he said. “But it wasn’t as relatable for me on a personal level. It’s not that I only like to play roles I know to a T, but there’s something satisfying about playing parts where you really relate to the characters.”

“The thing that most people have seen him in is not the color that is most present in Chris,” Betty Gilpin, Abbott's co-star in the play “Where We’re Born,” added. “For him to be written off as the ‘nice guy’ is an injustice in my mind. He’s got that bull in a china shop in him.”

Boardwalk Empire's Michael Zegen also joined the cast in June. The show was parodied earlier in the year by SNL, which Dunham called an "honor."

 Girls  returns on Jan. 12 with back-to-back episodes.
