UPDATE: It’s official

EARLIER: HBO may say goodbye to Girls.

The Lena Dunham-Judd Apatow comedy will end its run after six seasons, E! Online reports. The news comes ahead of the show’s season 5 premiere next month.

HBO declined to confirm the report, but speculation that Girls will end after six seasons dates back to last fall, when Dunham said as much during a radio interview with Elvis Duran

Speaking to EW last month about the rumors, Dunham said, “I’m not confirming or denying. We’re not committing.” She added that the new season, which starts on Feb. 21, will leave viewers with a chance to “see that the girls are heading to… not a conclusion in their life, but this period of their life — that the show is about — is ending.”

“It’s always been important to us that we know and understand when it’s time to wrap it up,” she added. “It is about a very specific time in life and we don’t want to push past that or overextend it. We’re going to feel it out.”

Loosely based on Dunham’s life, the series explores a group of women navigating their 20s in New York. Girls also stars Allison Williams, Jemima Kirke, and Zosia Mamet.

Girls returns Feb. 21 at 10 p.m. ET on HBO.
