Today it’s been announced that the Sky Atlantic show Girls has been renewed for a 6th and final season. The comedy from Lena Dunham will conclude in 2017, in what has said to be a mutual agreement by it’s US network HBO and the producers, both agreeing it’s a good place to bring the show to a conclusion.
Girls follows the lives of a group of 20-something friends in NYC, and is semi-autobiographical, which aspects of the show drawn from writer Lena Dunham’s life, and won her numerous Emmy nominations, and Golden Globe Awards. The show also brought co-star Adam Driver to the attention of movie producers, which led to him becoming the new Star Wars big bad, Kylo Ren.
Dunham had said in a recent interview on a New York radio station “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.”
