Lena Dunham and the Cast of Girls Reunite for a Hilarious Golden Girls Parody

Sad about the Girls ending? Well, you're certainly not alone. Lucky for us, Lena Dunham and the rest of the show's stars have something up their sleeves to minimize the hurt just a little bit.

With some help from Jimmy Kimmel Wednesday night, Dunham and her friends presented a fictitious re-boot of the popular HBO series, brilliantly named Golden GIRLS. Allison Williams, Jemima Kirke, Zosia Mamet, and Andrew Rannells all joined in for the reunion show spoof that finds their characters 50 years in the future.

The six-and-a-half minute clip begins with a kitschy '80s-style intro and a series of made-up credits (it wasn't actually directed by Blue Ivy and Shiloh Jolie-Pitt) before cutting to the prosthetically aged stars at home in the house they now share. Kirke's Jessa indulges in "recreational morphine" and Shoshana teeters around with a bedazzled walker while they prepare to celebrate Marnie's 63rd birthday/divorce/knee surgery party.

Watch the spoof in its entirety—including a hilarious appearance by Kimmel—in the video above.
