Girls To End After Season 6

In: Donovan, TV Shows
girls-final-season

Season 5 of Girls has yet to premiere but multiple media outlets confirm that Season 6 will be the Brooklyn quartet’s final hoorah.

It should really come as no surprise. After all, Lena Dunham didn’t make her feelings about ending the HBO comedy a secret. She’s stated in multiple interviews that Season 6 would be the perfect time to wrap up Girls.

“It’s really exciting,” Dunham previously told radio host Elvis Duran in Sept. 2015. “I started working on this show when I was 23, and I’m going to be 30, so it kind of feels right that this show kind of sandwiched my 20s and then I go off into the world.”

UPDATE: Dunham confirmed the news. Read her statement below.

Despite having a sensational second season, creatively speaking of course, The Leftovers lost a good chunk of its viewership from its freshman run. I was absolutely addicted this season. Spectacular writing all around. Even with its anemic ratings, HBO decided to renew the Justin Theroux show for a third and final season.

“It is with great enthusiasm that we welcome back Damon Lindelof, Tom Perrotta and the extraordinary talent behind The Leftovers for its third and final season,” HBO’s Michael Lombardo said in a statement. “This show has proven to be one of the most distinctive HBO series and we are extremely proud of its unrivaled originality, which has resulted in such a passionate following by our HBO viewers. We admire and fully support Damon’s artistic vision and respect his decision to bring the show to its conclusion next season.”

Even though I’m excited to see more of Theroux on television (hopefully full frontal next season), I thought the Season 2 finale was beautifully done. For a show that’s typically depressing, I loved how Theroux’s character looked like he had his happy ending. Read creator Damon Lindelof’s thoughts on the final season below.

The Girls Drift Apart In Girls Season 5 Trailer

Friendship is forever complicated,” the clip description states. Especially with these four ladies. They don’t appear to have much in common and frankly have been sorta mean to each other for four seasons. Why are they even still friends? Maybe that’ll be addressed during the upcoming season.

HBO just debuted the Girls Season 5 trailer. Here’s where the girls are at. Lena Dunham has a new love interest in the form of Jake Lacy. Her ex, Adam Driver, barely appears in the trailer, hinting perhaps at very limited screen time. Allison Williams is getting hitched. Zosia Mamet is in Japan and Jemima Kirke is… Actually, I have no idea.

Check out the trailer below. Girls returns to HBO on February 21, about a month later than it normally does.

To be perfectly honest, I think Lena Dunham does a lot of things like no one is watching. That’s part of her charm and what makes her such a unique individual.

HBO just debuted the first trailer for Girls Season 5. It shows Hannah Horvath letting loose during a dance class. Wearing a sports bra and short shorts, Brooklyn’s favorite heroine shows off what her mama gave her. Speaking of Mother Horvath, she makes an appearance near the end of the clip. Is this a hint that we’ll see more of Hannah’s mom now that she’s getting a divorce?

Usually, Girls returns to HBO in January roughly when the Golden Globe air. For its fifth season premiere, the comedy premieres a bit later, not arriving until February 21. Check out the teaser below.

For their last HBO series, Boardwalk Empire, it was all about mobsters and politicians in Atlantic City during the Prohibition era. Martin Scorsese and Terence Winter time travels to the 1970s this time around to put the spotlight on the New York music scene during that era. As with several of Scorsese’s previous work, the mob and organized crime play a factor.

Vinyl finds Scorsese and Winter teaming up with Mick Jagger for the period piece about sex and rock ‘n roll. Bobby Cannavale headlines the cast, playing Richie Finestra, a record executive trying to resurrect his label American Century. Olivia Wilde and Ray Romano play his wife and confidant respectively.

Vinyl’s ten-episode season begins in January 2016. Check out the latest trailer below.

From the man who gave us Jurassic Park, ER, Congo and Disclosure comes a fascinating new HBO series. Based on a 1973 film of the same name by Michael Crichton, Westworld is being described “a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin.” It takes place in a futuristic theme park called Westworld. J.J. Abrams is one of the co-producers.

Anthony Hopkins plays Dr. Robert Ford, the brilliant creative director of the theme park. James Marsden is a newly arrived gunslinger in pursuit of a local beauty played by Evan Rachel Wood. She recently discovers her entire life is an elaborately constructed lie. Thandie Newton, Rodrigo Santoro, Jeffrey Wright and Shannon Woodward round out the cast.

Check out the first teaser below. Saddle up for a trippy futuristic ride.

the-leftovers-season-2

Without a doubt, the best part of the first season of The Leftovers was Justin Theroux jogging. That flopping thing between his legs had a mind of its own. No wonder Jennifer Aniston is always smiling 😉 Fingers crossed, producers continue to let the 43-year-old actor go commando.

The Leftovers returns for its sophomore run on October 4. With last year covering the events of the source book in its entirety, the second season is completely original material. The action shifts from Mapleton, New York to a suburb in Texas, named Miracle. Turns out the Texan suburb experienced absolutely zero Sudden Departures. That is until the Garvey family arrives.

Joining Theroux for another round are Amy Brenneman, Carrie Coon, Liv Tyler, Margaret Qualley and Chris Zylka. New additions include Regina King, Kvin Carroll Janel Moloney and Family Matters‘ Darius McCrary. Check out the first trailer below.

The Leftovers Season 2

More than three years ago, 2% of the world’s population inexplicably vanished. 140 million people, gone in an instant. No country, no state, no city was spared, except for one small town in eastern Texas. Population: 9261. Departures: Zero. This is the setting for a tale of two families: the Garveys, who have moved to this special place, and whose lives were forever changed by the Departure, and the Murphys, a local family, who seem to have been spared from an event that shook the rest of the world.
