There's a show about four young women navigating jobs, relationships and friendships in New York City that has suddenly gone viral on TikTok (and no, we're not talking about Sex and the City). In fact, we're talking about Girls, the Lena Dunham-created series, which aired for 6 seasons on HBO from 2012 to 2017. And although it's been over 5 years since the dramedy ended, there are suddenly all kinds of videos about the show on TikTok and it's quickly having a resurgence.
If you're wondering why, it appears that Girls is simultaneously resonating with a new Gen Z audience, as well as with the viewers who watched it when it first aired. One user shared a clip (which got over 24k likes) that sees Dunham's character, Hannah, having a conversation with Fran (played by White Lotus star Jake Lacy). Over top of the video, they wrote, “Rewatching 'Girls' when you're 30 and living in NYC makes it that much more relatable.”
