Thought you were going to get to say goodbye to everyone on Girls next Sunday? Think again. Lena Dunham just revealed that two of the crew will not be in the series finale.
Dunham took to Instagram to post a photo collage in honor of Zosia Mamet and Jemima Kirke and revealed that the two would not appear in the last episode of the series. She said,
“From the first day we paired them together in fall 2010, we knew these two TV cousins had something kinetic. And it’s true- even when they were battling, Jessa & Shoshanna had this insane Hepburn/Tracy Laverne/Shirley energy that just made us laugh so hard and feel so much. Last night was their final episode of Girls. No words for how we’ll miss writing for them, watching them, working alongside them.”
This decision is pretty odd considering most series try to bring everyone back for a finale, including people who have already left the show (think Topher Grace in That ‘70s Show).
So why wouldn’t they want to gruesome foursome in the series finale?
The ending of Girls has been bittersweet for fans. Although many have been attached to the show from the beginning, the show also drew a lot of critics for its lack of diversity, and issue it barely addressed throughout the last six seasons.
The series has also said goodbye to Adam Driver, who played Hannah’s love who was just never meant to be. Of their last scene together, Dunham said,
“It was really emotional to shoot because Adam’s been such an amazing acting partner and teacher to me and I knew it was the last time we were going to do any performing together, so there was a real bitter-sweetness to the entire thing.”
The finale airs Sunday, April 16.
