Girls will return for its sixth and final season on Sunday, Feb. 12, HBO announced Thursday.

The popular, Emmy-winning comedy created by and starring Lena Dunham will wrap up the lives of a group of twentysomething Brooklynites (Dunham, Allison Williams, Jemima Kirke, Zosia Mamet) doing their best to “adult” in the real world.

“I conceived of Girls when I was 23 and now I’m nearly 30 — 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,” Dunham said in a statement back in January.

Season 6 wrapped filming in September, and the cast took to Instagram to express their emotions. “I don’t know what my adult life looks like without Girls,” Williams wrote at the time.

HBO also confirmed the premiere dates of Last Week Tonight With John Oliver, which will return Feb. 12 for its fourth season, and Crashing, a new series starring Pete Holmes debuting Feb. 19.
