TV Premiere: Girls Season 5
Lena Dunham's HBO show about young women and their romantic lives returned for the fifth and final season. The pack of girls have jumped in time and now at the wedding of Marnie played by Alison Williams. Lena Dunham as Hannah is an unenthusiastic bridesmaid and is suspicious that Marnie's groom Desi the musician, played by Ebon Moss-Bachrach, is not the right man for Marnie
Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) has returned from Japan with a fitting haircut and remains adorably clueless. Jessa (Jemima Kirke) is in a better place in her life but a blossoming relationship with Adam (Adam Driver, Kylo Ren of Star Wars 7), Hannah's ex-boyfriend, appears to be a major plot line of this season.
The show looks like it has retained its quirky humor and will be enjoyable to see it come to a fitting conclusion. The show had a good run and it appears to have not been cancelled but just determined that it has run its course by the creators. These girls have been through a lot and it has been an amusing show to watch. I look forward to seeing how it all wraps up!
