Lena Dunham Wants To End Girls While It 'Hasn't Overstayed Its Welcome'


Lena Dunham has elaborated on why she and the Girls team felt it was right to end the HBO series after its sixth season. Speaking at the Sundance Film Festival, during a Cinema Cafe chat with Norman Lear, the Girls creator and star explained that they wanted to end the show before it overstayed its welcome. "We were always conscious, especially because the show has been at times such a lightning rod, of overstaying our welcome," Dunham said. HBO's Girls predecessor Sex and the City also ended its run on the premium cable channel after six seasons but the stars did reunite for two movies, including a poorly reviewed sequel in which the four New Yorkers traveled to Abu Dhabi. Dunham suggested that Girls have a reunion set in Abu Dhabi's Middle East neighbor, Dubai.

    It's almost time to start saying bye-bye to Brooklyn. Sources tell E! News exclusively that an end date for Girls has indeed been decided upon, with Lena Dunham and her ladies set to sign off from HBO after a sixth season.

  • Did Lena Dunham Reveal the Ending for Girls?

    Could there be an end in sight for Girls? According to Lena Dunham, it sounds like the HBO comedy might be planning to take a bow after season six. Dunham called into Elvis Duran and the Morning Show this morning to talk about the free feminist newsletter she started with fellow Girls showrunner Jenni Konner, and she indicated that the show may only go on for two more seasons. Dunham said, "Never say never, but that is the way 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. It's really exciting. 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."
