There might be a “Girls” spin-off, but who would the show follow?
Stop the presses, there could actually be a Girls spinoff, but what would it be about? Who would it follow? When would it happen? We have so many questions!
On Sunday, we had to say goodbye to the girls of Girls and it was so bittersweet. While the HBO series ran for six seasons, it seemed like — or we hoped — it would last forever.
The show was SO good. It was so authentic, didn’t care about being messy, and talked about real things women — and men — go through in their 20s and early 30s. So, why should they stop now? A spinoff would be fabulous, and showrunner Jenni Konner is all for it.
“I would do any [idea, like a spin-off or a movie,]” Konner told Business Insider. “The thing is I don’t think spin-offs are in HBO’s DNA, really. I mean they haven’t really done it before. I’m down for it. I’m into a movie, too, but no one’s asked. We’re down for it all.”
Spinoffs might not be what HBO usually does, but maybe in this case they’ll reconsider? Before they do that — fingers crossed they actually do — let’s talk about what it could look like.
There could obviously be a Hannah (Lena Dunham) and Marnie (Allison Williams) spinoff series, because raising a child as BFFs would be SO interesting. This is assuming Marnie sticks by Hannah’s side for the long haul and doesn’t get her own life, which may or may not happen.
Or, it could focus on Jessa (Jemima Kirke) and her rogue life on her own, living out her days as her edgy, hippie self. Trying to figure out her relationship with Adam would make for an interesting follow-up idea, too.
The most probable spinoff idea however, would be to focus on Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet). First of all, Shosh is known for her epic one-liners and we need them back in our lives right now.
Remember the time she said, “Sometimes you have to break a few eggs to do what’s right.” Or, “I will never be bored as long as there’s Halloween!”
Plus, Shosh is all about girl power, which we love.
“I am woman, hear me roar,” she iconically said. “I only want to date people, who want to date me, because that is called self-respect,” she explained on another episode.
While we know she distanced herself from the group in the second to last episode of the series, it makes us want to follow her journey even more.
What is she up to now? Will she be able to live out her whole Sex and the City style dream of working in New York’s bustling media industry?
She is engaged now, so we’d LOVE to see where that goes. We have a feeling she’ll be even stronger without her ladies by her side.
