The fifth season of HBO’s Emmy and Golden Globe-winning HBO comedy Girls is coming to Blu-ray & DVD later this month ahead of the highly-anticipated final season’s arrival.
Starring and created by Lena Dunham and executive produced by Judd Apatow and Jenni Konner, the hit series follows the assorted humiliations and rare triumphs of a group of girls in their mid-20s—each facing new challenges in life and love.
As Season 5 begins, Hannah (Lena Dunham) has put her writing ambitions aside and is teaching alongside Fran (Jake Lacy), her new boyfriend. Marnie (Allison Williams) realises that she needs more space after her honeymoon with Desi (Ebon Moss-Bachrach).
While working towards becoming a therapist, Jessa (Jemima Kirke) also manages a budding relationship. And Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) is thriving at her new job in Japan, flirting with her boss despite her long-distance relationship with Scott (Jason Ritter).
Honest and uproarious, with unexpected surprise turns, the fifth season of Girls promises to maintain the series’ place as one of the most talked-about shows on television.
The cast also includes Alex Karpovsky as Ray; Adam Driver as Adam; and Andrew Rannells as Elijah. Returning guest stars for Season 5 of Girls include: Rita Wilson as Marnie’s mother; Peter Scolari (2016 Emmy® Winner, Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series for his role) and Becky Ann Baker as Hannah’s parents; Jon Glaser as Laird; Gaby Hoffman as Adam’s sister, Caroline; Aidy Bryant as Abigail; and Jason Ritter as Scott.
Girls: The Complete Fifth Season will be available on Blu-ray and DVD January 16th, 2017 and both feature a free digital download of all 10 episodes, plus exclusive bonus content including more than two dozen never-before-seen deleted and extended scenes.
