The end of the road is in sight for HBO’s Girls.
Sources confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that the Lena Dunham-Judd Apatow comedy will end its run after season six. HBO declined comment.
The news, first reported by E! Online, comes as the awards season darling is heading into its previously announced fifth season; a sixth cycle of the series has not yet been announced.
Created by and starring Dunham, Girls remains a cornerstone of the premium cable network’s original scripted programming and a staple of the cultural dialogue. The series was renewed for season five last January at its season four premiere party in New York; the comedy returns Sunday, Feb. 21.
Speaking with THR after the season four finale, star and co-showrunner Jenni Konner said producers would have a better feel for the future of the series after season five was arced out.
