A Girls Revival May Be Nearer Than You Think
The end of an era is upon us. On Easter Sunday, HBO’s Girls sang its swan song, joining the ranks of generation-defining network alums like The Sopranos and Sex and the City.
The next step, of course, is for us to speculate about potential revivals for the next 10 to 20 years, namely, can we expect Girls: The Movie?
According to the series’ executive producer, Jenni Konner, that door is far from closed.
“People ask us in interviews, ‘Would you be open to a movie?’ Of course we would!” Konner told Entertainment Weekly. “But that is as far as that rumor has gone. It’s not like there are any conversations happening. I also think it would have to be a little while. We couldn’t even do the finale without jumping in time a little. If we came back, there would have to be a good amount of time passed.”
Series star Allison Williams also shared her enthusiasm for a potential Girls movie back in March, telling InStyle she hopes to reprise the role of Marnie. “ I hope I’ll get to play her again someday, in some capacity,” she told us, “I want Lena [Dunham] to write a movie, so I can do that.”
Fans have also been speculating about the future of Elijah (Andrew Rannells), who some (me) may go as far as to call the true star of the series. Is there any truth to spin-off rumors?
The series’ fearless creator, Lena Dunham, said she and Konner have received “a lot of requests” for an Elijah-helmed spin-off.
Konner followed up, telling EW, “That’s a big Twitter request. We’d do it in a heartbeat because he’s the most talented person on earth. But there are no plans for it. But please feel free to pitch it to HBO.”
Hear that, Elijah fans? Get HBO on the phone, stat!
