This might be a sad news for all the Girls fan out there. If rumors are to be believed, the season six of Girls might be the last one.
The HBO original series Girls has already seen four seasons largely written and directed by its creator and star Lena Dunham. Predominantly referred to within the mainstream, popular culture as the millennial answer to Sex and the City since the show premiered in 2012, Dunham has carved a name for herself on the premium cable network, launching her to superstardom.
According to Entertaintment Weekly, during a recent call-in radio interview to Elvis Duran and the Morning Show, Dunham made her intentions known regarding season 6, suggesting that will be the series? final season.
She said, ?Never say never, but that is the way that we?re thinking about it right now and we?re starting to think about sort of how to wrap up the storylines 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!?
According to Slash Films, earlier this year, Dunham confirmed she?d spoken to HBO about taking Girls through Season 6, but her new comments make it clear she wants to wrap up after Season 6. ?I think America has a tendency to push shows past their due dates,? she said. ?I like the British model ? in and out.?
Keeping up with the show has proven difficult, especially in the disastrous Season 2 or whenever the show stretches for overtly awkward laughs and discomfiting situations that feel more tinny than provocative. That being said, the series? last two seasons have been excellent, especially the now famous ?Beach House? episode, and the show has become an incubator for some great performers, not the least of which being Adam Driver, Zosia Mamet, Allison Williams, Alex Karpovsky, and Dunham herself, reports Collider.
