HBO has just announced that comedy series Girls has been greenlit for a sixth and final season.
Michael Lombardo, president of HBO Programming, has announced today the renewal of Girls for its last season. Created by Lena Dunham in 2012, Lombardo states that her and her collaborators, including Judd Apatow and Jenni Konner, have given HBO “a signature series of rare wit and intelligence”, adding that “they are exceptional talents” and that he can’t wait to “see what Lena, Jenni and Judd have in store for the final seasons of this unique show”.
Dunham admits that she can’t imagine “a more fulfilling creative experience than Girls”. “The commitment and originality of our actors has been stunning, and our crew is truly my family”. The American writer also talks about the impact that Girls has had in her life, having conceived the idea when she was 23. “The show has quite perfectly spanned my 20s, the period of time that it’s about – and so it feels like the right time to wrap our story up”
As per what Season 6 could have in store for fans, Dunham suggests that in the Girls universe, “nothing ever ends too neatly”. Fear not, though, Michael Lombardo has also expressed his interest in working with the crew on future projects.
The fifth season of Girls will premiere on February 21st on HBO.
