Brave New Girls - Girls (TV series) - Netflix

Girls is an American HBO television series created by and starring Lena Dunham and executive produced by Judd Apatow. Girls is a comedy-drama following the lives of four young women living in New York City. The show's premise and major aspects of the main character—including being cut off financially from her parents, becoming a writer, and making unfortunate decisions—were drawn from Dunham's own life. The first season of Girls was filmed between April and August 2011. The first three episodes were screened at the 2012 SXSW Festival and the series premiered on HBO on April 15, 2012. The second season ran on HBO from January 13, 2013 to March 17, 2013. The third season, which contained 12 episodes as opposed to the previous seasons' 10 episodes, ran from January 12, 2014, to March 23, 2014. The fourth season of the series started filming in April 2014 and premiered on January 11, 2015. The fifth season premiered on February 21, 2016. Girls' sixth and final season concluded on April 16, 2017, culminating in a total of 62 episodes. Since its release in 2012, the series has generated significant criticism over its lack of racial representation, depiction of sexual assault, and Dunham's frequent on-screen nudity, though it has also received considerable critical acclaim and several accolades, including the 2013 Golden Globe Award for Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy.
