Trailer Watch: The ‘Girls’ Contend With Japan, “Gay Emergencies” and a Wedding in Season 5

Trailer Watch: The 'Girls' Contend With Japan, "Gay Emergencies" and a Wedding in Season 5

Geographical upheaval and poor decision-making look like they’ll be visiting the girls of “Girls” once more.

A trailer for the upcoming fifth (and potentially penultimate) season reveals that the HBO series will pick up from the events of last winter: Shoshanna has uprooted to Japan, Marnie’s sticking to her engagement to her scumbag fiancé and Elijah is helping Hannah and her dad with the latter’s “gay emergencies” (gay-mergencies?). Adam Driver’s nowhere to be seen — he’s probably been busy shooting a little movie called “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” — but the actor’s been seen on the “Girls” set in scenes with Lucy Liu(!). Perhaps most intriguingly, Jessa is seen wearing a cross.

As for Hannah, we’re not really sure what she’s up to, but it’s quite possible she herself doesn’t know, either. 

Season 5 begins February 21, 2016.
