Andrew Rannells on What's Next For Elijah on Girls (Hint: Lots of Underwear Scenes!)

Girls fans know all about the bumbling romantic lives of Hannah, Marnie, Shoshanna and Jessa, but we haven't gotten very much insight into the love escapades of Elijah, Hannah's former closeted boyfriend-turned-BFF.

"Elijah gets to be a little bit serious this season, and he gets to have a serious relationship. I'm very excited about it," Rannells told PEOPLE about Girls' upcoming fifth season at the Olevolos Project brunch.

Like most characters on the HBO show, Elijah must contend with a learning curve when it comes to matters of the heart.

"We haven't seen it before so it's not like something he is good at. You're going to see him sort of flail around a lot," Rannells teased.
