“Girls”
Season Premiere Sunday, February 12 at 10 PM ET/PT on HBO

          Created by and starring Lena Dunham, the Emmy®-winning comedy series is a comic look at the assorted humiliations and rare triumphs of a group of girls in their 20s. 
 
          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. In the final season of the Emmy®-winning HBO comedy series “GIRLS,” these four familiar friends attempt to get closer to becoming the women they always envisioned – even as life sometimes gets in the way.

 

          In addition to Dunham, who stars as Hannah, the cast includes Allison Williams as Marnie; Jemima Kirke as Jessa; Zosia Mamet as Shoshanna; Alex Karpovsky as Ray; Adam Driver as Adam; Andrew Rannells as Elijah; and Ebon Moss-Bachrach as Desi. Returning guest stars on the sixth season of GIRLS include: Emmy® winner Peter Scolari and Becky Ann Baker as Hannah’s parents; Rita Wilson as Marnie’s mother; Jon Glaser as Laird; Colin Quinn as Hermie; and Corey Stoll as Dill. New guest stars this season include: Riz Ahmed (HBO’s “The Night Of”) as Paul-Louis; Matthew Rhys (“The Americans”) as Chuck Palmer; and Tracey Ullman (HBO’s “Tracey Ullman’s Show”) as Ode.
