Lena Dunham Just Hinted That ‘Girls’ Could Be Ending Soon
There could be an end in sight for Girls.
Because series creator and star Lena Dunham kinda sorta hinted at it in a recent interview. The 29-year-old is an author, actress, newsletter-creator and producer. But soon, it could be time for this busy bee to move on from the television series that shot her to stardom.
Lena called in to Elvis Duran and the Morning Show and the thing everyone’s taking away from her interview is that Girls could be coming to a close in two years. When asked if she still holds onto the idea that there will be six seasons and then they’ll be done, Lena responded by saying:
“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, and so, it’s really exciting.”
Lena went on to talk about what a big chunk of her life has been devoted to her award-winning show, since she started working on the series when she was just 23 and she’s turning 30 in May. “[I]t kind of feels right that this show kind of sandwiched my 20s and then I go off into the world,” she said.
True, much has changed since Girls started in 2012 for all of the cast members in the show. Allison Williams just married Ricky Van Veen, Adam Driver is gearing up to star in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and Lena herself has launched her new feminist newsletter, Lenny, with Girls showrunner Jenni Konner.
And let’s not forget that since 2012, Girls has raked in two Golden Globes, one Emmy, a BAFTA, and many more nominations.
Guess all good things must come to an end.
