Just as yesterday gave us a full look at HBO’s 2017 Crashing, so too are Hannah and the Girls gang back for one final round. Our first trailer for the sixth and final season has arrived, and everyone’s still almost getting it right.

Whether or not you’re ready to say goodbye to HBO’s Girls, the end is officially nigh. HBO has formally set a date for the final episodes of Lena Dunham’s twenty-something trials, along with a badly-needed return date for Last Week Tonight With John Oliver, and a premiere for Judd Apatow and Pete Holmes’ Crashing.
The sixth and final season of HBO’s Girls will be here before you know it, and the network is already looking forward to 2017. See the first footage of the final season in a new collective HBO promo, along with other first looks at Pete Holmes comedy Crashing, and more.
We’ve been there with Girls through thick and thin, from Hannah’s voice of a generation through Charlie’s drug habit, and it looks like Marnie is ready to say goodbye. Ahead of the final season, star Allison Williams shares a few shots from her last day on set, along with the series’ history.
Like any mega-star comedian, Amy Schumer has an extensive resume of earlier appearances on TV. Girls fans in particular might remember Schumer’s brief role as the overbearing friend of Adam’s ex, as well that Schumer previously auditioned for the role of Shoshanna, which creator Lena Dunham now explains “wasn’t meant” to be.
It’s a strange thought that HBO’s once-controversial Girls will officially say goodbye in 2017, but no stranger than some of the unexpected guest stars from season to season. Where Corey Stoll dropped by last season, another FX leading male will spend some time with Hannah and co., none other than The Americans star Matthew Rhys.
Among the myriad HBO updates from the TCA press tour this weekend, Lena Dunham’s Girls garnered little spotlight for its sixth and final season, currently projected to air in 2017. Now, following her DNC appearance, Dunham teases a Florida shoot for Hannah’s final year.
Considering Netflix has pushed it to the point of debuting near of a new season or series every week, the premium providers of old seem almost deprived of new content. HBO won’t take that lying down, planning to up its original series haul by at least 50% of its current stable, but will it affect subscription fees?
There’s a Hollywood way of thinking when it comes to franchises and reboots: Give the audience more of the same, but…different. Stick to what fans love about the original property, while also giving them something a little new. The same concept could be translated to personal growth throughout our 20s: We remain the same, but ever-so-slightly change over time. That change comes at the speed of molasses as we resentfully trudge through maturity, much like the women of HBO’s Girls. Season 5 brings some change, sure, but it is mostly more of the same — not that that’s a bad thing.
The girls of Girls will return for their penultimate season this very Sunday on HBO, leaving only a few days to catch up on Season 4 with the official Tuesday Blu-ray and DVD release. You don’t even have to wait that long, with our exclusive deleted scene from the Season 4 special features, as Hannah and Elijah react to her father’s big news.
