Critic Consensus: Though some characters have devolved into caricatures, watching them struggle in Girls is more fun in season five, with sharper humor and narrative consistency than prior seasons.

Tv Season Info

Season 5 of the comedy series starts months after the flash forward that ended Season 4. Marnie (Allison Williams) is about to get married to Desi (Ebon Moss-Bachrach) and has to deal with impending rain and Hannah's (Lena Dunham) tendencies of drawing everyone's attention. Fran (Jake Lacy), now dating Hannah, and Adam (Adam Driver) are both in attendance, and are awkward around each other. With the wedding put behind them, the girls (and boys) go back to their lives and fumble their way through love while dealing with deranged roommates, addiction, overbearing parents, and potentially awesome job offers.

Critic Reviews for Girls Season 5

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (12)

There is love and gentleness to the show that is more pervasive than ever before in the fifth season.

Mar 20, 2017 | Full Review…

As their behavior became increasingly less believable, the characters of Girls started to feel more like punching bags than real people.

Feb 18, 2016 | Full Review…

Each episode feels like we're dropping in on a specific moment, as if we're watching a visual essay plucked from a weekly journal entry.

Brave and perceptive, Girls is a wonder. [Full review in Spanish]

Jan 11, 2018 | Full Review…

As relationships take on new shades of meaning as they become grounded and real, Girls begins to really build something wonderful. Dare we call it ... maturity?

Feb 19, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Girls still feels like Girls, albeit a less surprising version than it was back at the start, and that bumpy transition into real maturity should provide some good material for everyone as the series moves through these last two years.

Feb 18, 2016 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

Rather than the weaving narrative of earlier seasons, this episode felt too bitty for the viewer to re-connect with any of the characters.

Feb 22, 2016 | Full Review…

The friends' travails are presented in a kinder and gentler manner than we're used to, and the balance has shifted away from cringey awkwardness and toward something resembling warmth.

Feb 22, 2016 | Full Review…

There is, at last and again, some poignancy, stoicism and a sense of gratitude between these maddening, sometimes painfully annoying people.

Feb 19, 2016 | Full Review…

The manner in which Hannah's family ties have evolved represent the very best of Girls: A show that has become convinced it's about a group of pals, but one that should be about the birth of one adult consciousness.
