'Girls' to finally come to an end after 6 seasons

Posted on JUL 24, 2019

The creators are finally pulling the plug on the critically acclaimed HBO show about the struggles of millennials.

It's official: HBO's "Girls" will end after six seasons.

Of course, that doesn't mean the show is going after the air anytime soon, as season 5 still has yet to start airing, so fans will still get two more seasons to soak up the millennial dramedy, according to a Hollywood Gossip report.
The show, which stars Lena Dunham as Hannah, was always set to end in 2017, but the show's creators have given that target some real finality.

Dunham said it feels right to end the show at this point, as she was 23 when the show started and will be 30 when it ends.

Girls also features Allison Williams, Zosia Mamet, and Jemima Kirke.

Season 5 will begin February 21 six months after the events of season 4. That season ended with all of the girls finding themselves in very different situations and about embark on new journeys in life.

Girls premiered on HBO back on April 15, 2012. Lena Dunham is the creator of the show, which follows twenty-somethings as they try to figure out life in New York City, dealing with heartbreak, rejections, and career failures along the way. Dunham said she draws the story lines for the show from her own life.

The show began when aspiring writer Hannah gets a visit from her parents from East Lansing in Michigan, telling her that they won't support her financially anymore, leaving her on her own in Greenpoint, Brooklyn
