HBO’s current run of original programming is winding down before the end of the year. Westworld, Divorce and Insecure will all have their season finales in the next few weeks, but they’ll all be back with second seasons, presumably around the same time of the year in 2017. That means it’s time to look ahead at HBO’s original programming coming early next year, and that includes the end of one of their hit shows, and the first season for an all-new comedy series.
The final trailer for Lena Dunham‘s hit series Girls has arrived online along with the first trailer for Crashing, the new comedy series starring comedian and former late night host Pete Holmes. Watch them both after the jump. Read More »

Everyone has to grow up and move on sometime. Even the girls of Girls. HBO has officially announced it’s ending Lena Dunham‘s comedy after season six, in accordance with Dunham’s previously stated wishes. More on the Girls final season after the jump. Read More »
The new season of Girls is coming next February, and the full trailer has arrived, teasing what’s in store for these New Yorkers with the biggest first world problems you’ve ever seen. The trailer says “Girls grow up and grow apart, but friendship is forever complicated.” Though from the looks of this trailer, I don’t really see any evidence of any of Hannah (Lena Dunham), Marnie (Allison Williams), Jessa (Jemima Kirke) and Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) growing up at all.

HBO‘s Girls flew a little under the radar this past season. What was once one of the most talked-about shows on the air has just become another component of the larger television tapestry. By this point, HBO subscribers, HBO Now users, and people who use their parents’ HBO Go accounts know whether or not the frequently humiliating and brutally honest misadventures of Lena Dunham‘s Hannah Horvath are for them. The think pieces have slowed to a trickle.
But Girls will be Girls and it’s still perfectly good at doing what it does. It’s going to keep going as long as Dunham and her team have embarrassing and uncomfortably personal stories to recreate on screen. The first footage from season 5 has arrived and once again, Dunham showcases a shamelessness/fearlessness that is genuinely admirable.
You can watch the Girls season 5 teaser below.

“The plan is… there is no plan.” That’s Adam’s approach for dealing with Hannah’s move to Iowa in the latest Girls Season 4 trailer, but really it could be a tagline for the whole damn show. Though to be fair, even when these girls (and boys) do make plans, they have a way of going awry.
Case in point: Marnie’s decision to devote herself with music is going south as her partner proves less than committed, while Hannah’s choice to move to Iowa is throwing all of her relationships into disarray. Watch the new Girls Season 4 trailer after the jump. Read More »

You can take the girl out of Brooklyn, but you can’t take the Brooklyn out of the girl. As revealed in HBO’s new Girls Season 4 preview, Hannah (Lena Dunham) is now a student in Iowa — but she’s still the same old Hannah, endlessly impressed with her own progress toward maturity.
Meanwhile, the girls back in New York haven’t changed a lot either. Marnie (Allison Williams), for example, continues to believe in her musical career no matter how obvious it is to everyone else that it’s a terrible idea. Check in with Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet), Jessa (Jemima Kirke), and the rest of the gang in the Girls Season 4 preview after the jump.
