Season 1 Created by and starring filmmaker Lena Dunham, Girls takes a comic look at the assorted humiliations and rare triumphs of a group of girls in their early 20s. The girls, having lived in New York for a couple of years are still not sure what they want – from boys, from each other, from themselves... and things don’t seem to be getting any clearer. Season 2 Following the urban adventures of a group of 20-something women, the series focuses on Hannah Horvath (Dunham) and her complicated web of NYC friends, ex-friends, boyfriends, and ex-boyfriends. This season, Hannah forges ahead with her dream of being a bestselling author and even starts to earn a little cash, but her enthusiasm is tempered by the responsibility she feels for her now-ex Adam (Adam Driver), convalescing after his S1-finale accident. Let down by work and still lonely after calling things off with Charlie, Marnie (Allison Williams) needs her best friend and former roommate more than ever, but lingering awkwardness – and some surprising turns – only drive a wedge further between them. Meanwhile, Jessa (Jemima Kirke) meets her new inlaws and attempts to live the married life, and Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) gives Ray (Alex Karpovsky) another chance at a relationship. The girls may have their ups and downs, but the show’s raw poignancy and fresh humor remain constant. And Season 2 of Girls is as addictive as ever. Season 3 Following the misadventures of a group of 20-something friends in NYC, the series centres on Hannah Horvath (Lena Dunham) and her mess of anxieties, insecurities and uncertainty as she approaches her mid-20s. In Season 3, Hannah is now in a committed relationship with Adam (Adam Driver), and the two are settling into a newfound domesticity in her apartment. Hannah is also working on rehabilitating her writing career and concentrating on delivering her eBook to her eccentric publisher. Meanwhile, Marnie (Allison Williams) is adjusting to life after a sudden and traumatic breakup with Charlie and meticulously working to achieve the life she feels she deserves. Nearing graduation, newly single Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) masterminds a plan to create a healthy (at least on paper) balance between partying and her studies. And, continuing her streak of disrupting the lives of those around her, Jessa (Jemima Kirke) resurfaces and strikes up an ambiguous friendship with a flamboyant father figure. Over this season's 12 episodes, the friendships between the girls are more volatile than ever, proving that female friendship is its own kind of romance. As always, love, life, sex and death can all interrupt the circuitous path to adulthood - and will arrive when you're least prepared. Season 4 Lena Dunham returns for the fourth season of Girls, the Emmy®- and Golden Globe-winning comedy series that follows the misadventures of a group of 20-something friends in and out of NYC. This season finds the girls tentatively edging towards maturity as they take on new personas in new worlds. As the season begins, Hannah (Dunham) leaves New York to attend the prestigious Iowa Writers’ Workshop in the hopes of becoming a more serious writer, while confronting uncertainty in her relationship with Adam (Adam Driver). Meanwhile, back in New York, Marnie (Allison Williams) pursues a music career while balancing her professional and romantic relationship with Desi (Ebon Moss-Bachrach); Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) graduates and begins interviewing for jobs, while sorting out her relationship with Ray (Alex Karpovsky); and Jessa (Jemima Kirke) is trying out sobriety through AA, though her ability to stir up drama remains undiminished. By turns hilarious and heartbreaking, this season’s 10 episodes offer up some unexpected twists, as the girls of Girls continue to hunt for success – creatively, professionally and romantically – in New York City and beyond. Guests this season include Richard E. Grant (Doctor Who) as Jessa’s rehab friend Jasper; Rita Wilson (The Good Wife) as Marnie’s mom Evie; John Cameron Mitchell (Hedwig and the Angry Inch) as Hannah’s editor/publisher David; Gaby Hoffmann (You Can Count on Me) as Adam’s sister Caroline; and others. Season 5 Lena Dunham returns for the highly anticipated fifth season of Girls, the award-winning hit comedy series that follows the assorted humiliations and triumphs of a group of girls in their mid-20s – each facing new challenges in life and love this season. As Season 5 begins, Hannah is, for the moment, putting her writing ambitions aside, continuing to work as a teacher alongside new boyfriend (and refreshingly nice guy) Fran – a relationship which her friends urge her not to screw up. Meanwhile, Marnie micro-manages her upstate wedding to her musical partner Desi, but upon returning from the honeymoon, begins to realize she needs more space, literally and figuratively. Jessa, working towards becoming a therapist, tries to stay on the straight and narrow, while managing a budding relationship. And Shoshanna, who 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. Season 6 Lena Dunham stars in the sixth and final season of Girls, HBO's hit comedy that follows the assorted humiliations and triumphs of a group of 20-something friends in NYC. Season 6 picks up six months after the end of S5, 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, 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. And Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) finds herself professionally on the right path in a new job at a marketing agency, though personally she realizes that her friendships may be holding her back.
