HBO’s ‘Girls’ Confirmed to End After Season 6 in 2017
There’s little secret of the fact Lena Dunham’s HBO Girls has lost some of its buzz heading into Season 5, particularly as its actors take on bigger projects elsewhere. We’d heard before that Dunham was likely to end the series after a sixth year, and it seems HBO is now confirming a goodbye to Girls after 2017.
E! Online claims that inside sources have officially declared Girls Season 6 as the Brooklyn-set series’ final outing, even as HBO has yet to announce an official pickup beyond the upcoming fifth year. Previously, Dunham had said of a potential end date:
Never say never, but [Season 6] 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!
Thus far, relatively little is known of Girls’ February 21 premiere, though Hannah, Jessa, Marnie and Shoshanna are expected to pick up with the scant Season 4 timejump that saw Hannah turning down Adam’s renewed interest, instead coupling up with Fran (Jake Lacy). Elementary star Lucy Liu has also been seen on set playing a version of herself, acting opposite Adam Driver’s character.
