HBO has released the first trailer for the final season of Girls, debuting Sunday, February 12 at 10 PM ET. Series creator Lena Dunham stars as Hannah Horvath, who comes to realize that she hasn't really acted as a friend to all of her dear friends. We'll have to wait two more months to see if Hannah Horvath can salvage any of the friendships she has fostered throughout the first five seasons.
Girls returns for its sixth and final season on Sunday, February 12 (10:00-10:30 p.m. ET/PT). Created by and starring Lena Dunham, the Emmy-winning comedy series is a comic look at the assorted humiliations and rare triumphs of a group of girls in their 20s. Dunham executive produces along with Judd Apatow, Jenni Konner, Ilene S. Landress, Murray Miller and Bruce Eric Kaplan. The cast also includes Allison Williams, Jemima Kirke, Zosia Mamet, Adam Driver, Alex Karpovsky, Andrew Rannells and Ebon Moss-Bachrach. Back in October, we reported that the final episode for Girls wrapped, as Lena Dunham issued a heartfelt statement about the show through social media.
"I know I'm not alone in the Girls family when I say this is the end of the largest and most potent chapter of my life so far. Before Girls I had zero identity, zero self-love and an urgent sense of untapped creative desire that kept me up and sweating at night in other people's beds, wondering why vague sexual affirmation wasn't enough to make me feel human. I had hardly an inkling of the responsibility we take on when we tell stories, or of the power words can have, but what I had- as an obsessed fan of shows from Girlfriends to Felicity to Ally McBeal- was the audacity to think that people might want to see women like my friends and me (broken, imperfect, angry) on television. When we shot our pilot six years ago, I never dreamed that I could be so fulfilled by the process of art-making, of collaboration, of honest expression. And so through this show I developed an identity, gained a new kind of family and began my life in earnest. It's an embarrassment of riches. There are too many essential personnel to name here, and the messages I have for them are far too intimate for this modern venue, but I trust I've made it clear who you are and what you mean to me. If I haven't, please feel free to demand explanations."
Girls not only launched Lena Dunham's career, but also the careers of her fellow cast members, including Adam Driver, who has had a meteoric rise through the Hollywood ranks since joining the show. Before Girls, Adam Driver's biggest role was playing Walter Lyle in the 2011 biopic J. Edgar, alongside Leonardo DiCaprio. He has gone on to star in a number of hit indies such as Frances Ha and Inside Llewyn Davis, before playing the nefarious Kylo Ren in last year's global blockbuster Star Wars: The Force Awakens. He will return as Kylo Ren in next year's Star Wars: Episode VIII as well.
Allison Williams, the daughter of news anchor Brian Williams, has also found success beyond Girls as well, starring in NBC's live musical Peter Pan as the title character. We'll have to wait and see what the rest of the cast will move on to star in after the final Girls episode airs at some point next year. While we wait for more on the final season, take a look at the new video below.
