Rannells revealed Thursday that he would be returning for the HBO comedy's third season as Elijah after a scheduling conflict with his NBC show "The New Normal" forced him to leave four episodes into Season 2.
"It’s very exciting ... I don’t know what’s in store ... But my fingers are crossed that I’ll come back at least for a little bit more. I’m super excited for that, I’m looking forward to it," Rannells told Hollywood.com. Production on Season 3 of "Girls" reportedly begins in April.
