Lena Dunham revealed the news on her Instagram Monday
Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) and Jessa (Jemima Kirke) made their final appearance on Girls‘ penultimate episode Sunday night, creator and star Lena Dunham revealed on Instagram Monday.
“From the first day we paired them together in fall 2010, we knew these two TV cousins had something kinetic,” Dunham wrote. “And it’s true- even when they were battling, Jessa & Shoshanna had this insane Hepburn/Tracy Laverne/Shirley energy that just made us laugh so hard and feel so much. Last night was their final episode of Girls. No words for how we’ll miss writing for them, watching them, working alongside them.”
Shoshanna didn’t appear in most of this final season’s episodes, though it was revealed in Sunday’s installment that she’s been busy making a new life for herself. She and the rest of the main foursome gather at her engagement party and soon realize that they just don’t get along. But it’s not all bad: Jessa and Hannah make up after months of not talking, and eventually, all four of them dance together, putting aside their past for a night before Hannah moves away to upstate New York to teach at a college.
The series finale of Girls airs Sunday at 10 p.m. ET on HBO. See Dunham’s Instagram above.
