Dunham suggested that the timing feels right for season 6 to be the conclusion of the series.
“Never say never, but that is the way that 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,” Dunham said. “I started working on this show when I was 23, and now 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!”
In an interview with Variety earlier this year, Dunham commented that she had talked with HBO about doing six seasons, though nothing had been confirmed.
“I think America has a tendency to push shows past their due dates,” Dunham says. “I like the British model — in and out.”
The Girls creator also chatted about costar Adam Driver, who will be playing the villain in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Dunham admitted that she has never seen any of the Star Wars films, but will only do so if Driver changes his mind about Girls.
“Adam has never watched an episode of Girls because he doesn’t like to watch himself,” Dunham says. “So I’m like, ‘Great, you watch Girls, I’ll watch Star Wars!’ “
If the past four years have been any indication, don’t hold your breath.
