We already pretty much knew this was true, or at least that it was Lena Dunham's plan, as she said in her Lenny newsletter last September that she always thought Girls should end after its sixth season. Now it looks like it has been confirmed.
E! has reported that season six will indeed be the final outing for Girls, with the last episodes expected to air in 2017. Previously Lena had said; "We’re starting to think about sort of how to wrap up the story lines of these particular young women.
"I started working on this show when I was 23, and now 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!"
If only we all could head into our thirties with an award-winning critically acclaimed show under our belts, wha'?
