‘Girls’ Final Season Counts Down With Allison Williams’ Goodbye
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.
HBO has yet to formally confirm a premiere date for the final season of Girls in 2017, though Williams has officially wrapped her time as Marnie Michaels. The star shared a photo from her final day, along with some heartfelt thanks to Lena Dunham:
Marnie has officially gone wherever all characters go when we stop watching them. And I couldn’t feel luckier that I got to play her. This lady, @lenadunham, gave me everything. She gave me the most incredible challenges and adventures and the opportunity to know and love our GIRLS family. She also gave me her fierce friendship, wit, love, and loyalty, all while making me giggle on a constant basis. Sitting next to Lena while being directed by @jennikonner, it all felt completely right. Then I immediately burst into some pretty rare tears, because it hit me that I don’t know what my adult life looks like without Girls. To everyone - our cast, our crew, HBO, my family - thank you. And to @juddapatow, thanks for watching a YouTube video of a 22 year-old fresh out of college and inviting her to audition for Marnie Marie Michaels. I’ve been grateful every single day since. #EndOfGirls #ThatsAWrapOnMarnie
Elsewhere, relatively few details of Girls Season 5 have been revealed, other than an unexpected announcement that The Americans star Matthew Rhys would take part in an unknown role. Girls was also recently shooting in Florida, as we saw with writer-creator-star Lena Dunham’s Instagram posts.
HBO will likely firm up the final Girls season plan before 2017 is out, but adieu, Marnie Michaels. May you never touch Edie Brickell again.
