When Charlie and Marni reconciled their on and off again romance in the season 2 series finale of HBO’s Girls, our hearts smiled as we Marni–played by Allison Williams–told him that she wanted to “have his brown babies and watch him die.” Now, she’ll never get that chance. Christopher Abbott who plays Charlie, has left the show. Consider him and Marni permanently off!
While the New York Times is reporting the he is “grateful for the experience of collaborating with Lena, Judd, and the entire Girls cast and crew, but right now he’s working on numerous other projects.”
The New York Post is singing a different tune. “They’ve just started working on Season 3 and Chris is at odds with Lena,” a source told the Post. Lena Dunham is the show’s creator, director and producer who has won two Golden Globes for the series, currently in production for season 3.
And just when we thought someone was finally going to have a happy ending on this show.
