According to E!, Lena Dunham's Girls will officially end after its sixth season. This follows the numerous declarations from Lena herself who has been stating for some time that her debut series had a season six expiration date. Most recently, she told Variety in April that she and executive producer Jenni Konner had agreed on packing it up after six seasons.
"I think America has a tendency to push shows past their due dates," Dunham said. "I like the British model—in and out."
For now, the best thing to do is to catch season five which is set to premiere on HBO on February 21. All is not lost either as Lena Dunham has stated that she's open to doing a Girls movie (like another HBO series about female friendship) about a decade or so after the show takes its final bow. "I have fantasies of us all coming back when we're 40," Dunham told Variety. "We'd want to wait long enough for something to have really gone down."
