We’ve got some bad news for “Girls” fans. According to reports, audiences will be forced to say farewell to their favorite Brooklynites when the hit HBO series concludes Season 6.
A source revealed to E! News that’s when Lena Dunham, mastermind behind the beloved dramedy, plans to write her final chapter on the girls of Greenpoint. HBO, however, has yet to confirm the report.
Dunham, whose series first premiered in 2012, has been quite vocal regarding her vision of how the Emmy-nominated series would resolve. During an interview with Elvis Duran and the Morning Show in September, the 29-year-old actress shared that she had already begun thinking about how she would wrap up the storylines of Hannah (Dunham), Jessa (Jemima Kirke), Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) and Marnie (Allison Williams).
“It's really exciting,” she said. “I started working on this show when I was 23, and I'm going to be 30 so it kind of feels right that this show kind of sandwiched my 20s and then I go off into the world."
But that wasn’t the first time Dunham hinted that the series was nearing its end. In April 2015, the writer dished to Variety that although a sixth installment of “Girls” had been discussed with the network, she wasn’t sure if she wanted to follow up with a seventh.
“I think America has a tendency to push shows past their due dates,” Dunham explained of why she was hesitant to continue the story. “I like the British model — in and out.”
According to Dunham, she would like to end "Girls" in a “graceful place” instead of "running it into the ground." “We'd like to tell a complete story,” she explained to the Hollywood Reporter. “What that means is that we really have to start building towards an end soon, creatively.”
