Girls returns to Showcase

Great news for fans of HBO’S Girls with Foxtel announcing it will Fastrack the show’s 5th season express from the US.

As Season 5 begins, Hannah (Lena Dunham) is, for the moment, putting her writing ambitions aside, continuing to work as a teacher alongside new boyfriend (and refreshingly nice guy) Fran (Jack Lacy) – a relationship which her friends urge her not to screw up. Meanwhile, Marnie (Allison Williams) micro-manages her upstate wedding to her musical partner Desi (Ebon Moss-Bachrach), but upon returning from the honeymoon, begins to realise she needs more space, literally and figuratively. Jessa (Jemima Kirke), working towards becoming a therapist, tries to stay on the straight and narrow, while managing a budding relationship. While Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet), makes a brief return to the U.S. for Marnie’s wedding, is thriving at her new job in Japan, where she flirts with her boss despite her long-distance relationship with Scott back home. Honest and uproarious, with unexpected surprise turns, Girls ’ fifth season promises to maintain the series’ place as one of the most talked about shows on television.

As for the guys of GIRLS: Adam continues to pursue acting while his personal priorities begin to shift. Ray, after vocally opposing Marnie and Desi’s marriage, ends up focusing his energy on a new coffee shop across the street from his, which he fears is stealing from his business. And Elijah, struggling to form an identity while working at Ray’s, meets and begins to date a famous news anchor named Dill Harcourt.

Girls Season 5 premieres Tuesdays from February 23 at 7.30pm on showcase, only on Foxtel.
