Jemima Kirke Knows You Probably Didn’t Like Girls’ Series Finale
Finales are hard…just ask the stars of Girls.
The HBO hit series recently ended its six-season run with a polarizing series finale, one that currently ranks as the worst of all-time in our gallery of the best and worst TV finales. However, Jemima Kirke (aka Jessa) isn’t too concerned with the backlash to the series ending.
“I loved it,” Kirke told E! News at the 12th annual Chanel Tribeca Film Festival Dinner on Monday night. “I know that people weren’t a fan, but everyone hates a finale.”
Going against traditional TV endings, Girls series finale focused on only two of the four main girls, with Jessa (Kirke) and Shoshanna’s (Zosia Mamet) storylines wrapping up in the penultimate episode.
For Jessa, that meant a sort of happily ever after with Adam (Adam Driver), just after he and Hannah (Lena Dunham) gave their relationship one last try. So does Kirke think Jessa and Adam’s relationship will last?
“Probably not, no. It probably won’t,” she said. “I think it would be like any sort of very dysfunctional relationship, it could last a very long time based on how dysfunctional it is. It’s just a cycle.”
And, of course, because revivals and reunions are all the rage right now, we had to know if Kirke was in for a possible Girls movie in the future. “I hope so! That would be nice,” she told us. “I would love to see what Jessa is up to in 10 years or so.”
So would we.
