The sixth and final season of Girls will premiere on HBO on Sunday 12 February at 10.00pm
In the final season of the Emmy®-winning HBO comedy series GIRLS, created by and starring Lena Dunham, these four familiar friends attempt to get closer to becoming the women they always envisioned – even as life sometimes gets in the way.
Judd Apatow, Jenni Konner, Lena Dunham, Ilene S. Landress, Murray Miller and Bruce Eric Kaplan executive produce the show, which kicks off its ten-episode sixth season Sunday, Feb. 12 (10:00-10:45 p.m. ET/PT), followed by other half-hour episodes subsequent Sundays at the same time.
As the season begins, enjoying new success as a writer after participating in “The Moth,” Hannah gets an assignment that could change her life. Divorced from Desi, Marnie seeks to remain independent, but her self-absorption could undermine a budding relationship with Ray. New couple Jessa and Adam embark on a creative project that could become a source of contention. Shoshanna flourishes at a marketing agency, but realizes her friendships may be holding her back.
