'Girls' Season 6 Trailer: Hannah Writes Again as Marnie Returns to Desi
HBO's Girls are almost back. A little over a month before the sixth and final season of the HBO series premieres, the official trailer for the remaining batch of episodes has debuted online.
In the new preview, Hannah (Lena Dunham) is shown writing once more, having returned to storytelling in the season-five finale, and she seems to have decided what she wants to accomplish with her writing.
"I want to write stories that make people feel less alone than I did," she says toward the end of the trailer as her friends and family are shown reading a newspaper, presumably featuring something she's written. "I want to make people laugh about the things in life that are painful."
Earlier, Hannah displays some more of the self-awareness showcased in a recent promo. She pitches herself to a magazine editor, played by Chelsea Peretti, by saying, "I don't give a shit about anything, yet I simultaneously have opinions about everything." She's later seen saying, "I'm mentally ill. I'm overweight. I isolate people." She also whines to Elijah (Andrew Rannells) that she wants someone to "tell me exactly what to do in a way that makes it seem like it's my idea."
Meanwhile, Marnie (Allison Williams) seems to be having a "tryst" with her ex-husband, Desi (Ebon Moss-Bachrach), while continuing her relationship with Ray (Alex Karpovsky).
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter after last year's season-five finale, Girls co-showrunner Jenni Konner said that Marnie, who jumped into a committed relationship with Ray after ending her marriage to Desi, was "really floundering." "I don't think she can keep running from one relationship to the next to the next to the next," added Konner.
Elsewhere in the Girls trailer, Jessa (Jemima Kirke) and Adam's (Adam Driver) relationship seems to be continuing, despite opposition from her friends, with Jessa yelling at Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) and Elijah, "Why are you guys mad at me about Adam? Grow up."
Shosh, meanwhile, is trying to find her way in the working world after returning from Japan. She says at one point in the trailer, "All of those ladies out there who have, like, jobs and purses and nice personalities, those are not my friends."
Girls returns to HBO on Sunday, Feb. 12, at 10 p.m.
