HBO has renewed their Lena Dunham created comedy series Girls for a fifth season.
Created by Lena Dunham, Girls follows the day to day lives of Hannah, Marnie, Jessa and Shoshanna who are trying to figure life out. They’ve been living in New York for a couple of years, but they’re still not sure what they want – from boys, from each other, from themselves. And things aren’t getting any clearer. The comedy series stars Lena Dunham, Jemima Kirke, Allison Williams, Zosia Mamet, Adam Driver, Andrew Rannells and Ebon Moss-Bachrach.
The fifth season order, which like season four is believed to be for ten episodes, comes just ahead of launch of the show’s fourth season and was announced by HBO’s President of Programming Mike Lombardo at the Girls season four screening at the Museum of National History in New York City.
Despite some slight controversy surrounding Lena Dunham in the past few months, Girls was largely expected to proceed to a fifth season. Since it launched on HBO in 2012, the series has been a hit for the network both in terms of viewership and critical reception, and has cemented its position as HBO’s flagship comedy series.
