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.
