Before Lena Dunham goes full steam ahead with the season five premiere of Girls this February, the actress still has a couple episodes of her podcast mini-series to get through.

Dunham launched the first episode of her free, five-series podcast, Women of the Hour, back in early November and many fans were hoping that she would extend the series. However, the actress confirmed via Instagram that she will, in fact, be ending the podcast with just five episodes.

“Second to last episode of#womenofthehour podcast online in 40 mins! It’s about Work. Speaking of which, work it Squibb,” Dunham wrote, including a photo of her and actress June Squibb, who actually played the role of Dunham’s grandmother on Girls.


Speaking of Girls, ending her podcast means Dunham can focus all of her attention back to the Emmy-winning series. Dunham and the rest of the cast have been sharing the trailer for upcoming fifth season, which was just released yesterday, and it definitely looks like it’s going to be a good one.

One of the biggest points of conversation in the new trailer is that Marnie (played by Allison Williams) is getting married, despite the fact that her best friend, Hannah (Dunham), doesn’t approve of the groom. But it looks like the wedding will happen, based on a photo that both Dunham and Williams shared on Instagram. It shows Williams dressed up like a bride surrounded by Dunham and the other two leading ladies (Jemima Kirke and Zosia Mamet) in matching lilac bridesmaids dresses.

This is the second time Williams has gotten to play bride this year. The actress married her real-life partner, Ricky Van Feen, this past September. She wore a gorgeous couture bridal gown by Oscar de la Renta and the couple reportedly had Tom Hanks officiate their ceremony. We’ll have to wait and see if her Girls wedding stacks up to her real one.

Season five of Girls stars on February 21 on HBO.
