Girls returns for Final Season on Showcase

Girls will return to Showcase for the last time next month.

GIRLS from writer/director/actor Lena Dunham, focusing on the ups and downs of a group of 20-something friends in NYC.

Season 6 picks up six months after the end of Season 5, with Hannah (Dunham), enjoying new success as a writer after her participation in “The Moth” last season, getting a plum writing assignment that could dramatically change the course of her life.

 Marnie (Allison Williams), now in a relationship with Ray (Alex Karpovsky), seeks to maintain her independence post-divorce from Desi (Ebon Moss-Bachrach), but when her actions veer into self-absorption, it may end up making her current relationship unsustainable.

 Now also a couple, Jessa and Adam (Jemima Kirke and Adam Driver) decide to embark on a creative project to channel their passions, which could become a source of contention.

 Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) finds herself professionally on the right path in a new job at a marketing agency, though personally she realises that her friendships may be holding her back. While Elijah (Andrew Rannells) decides to get serious about pursuing a Broadway career.

 Season 6 brings back a number of guests from past years, including Becky Ann Baker and Peter Scolari (as Hannah’s parents Loreen and Tad), Rita Wilson (Marnie’s mom Evie), Jon Glaser (Laird), Colin Quinn (Hermie), and Corey Stoll (Dill Harcourt).  Along with new guests this season include Riz Ahmed (The Night Of), Matthew Rhys (The Americans), Tracey Ullman (Tracey Ullman’s Show), and others to be announced.

A time for closing chapters and new beginnings, the 10-episode final season of Girls follows our four familiar friends as they attempt to get closer to becoming the women they always envisioned – even as life sometimes gets in the way. 

Girls airs Wednesday February 15 at 8.30pm on Showcase
