Lena Dunham Reveals Why Girls Is Ending After Season 6

The Girls Cast on Saying Goodbye to Girls

Girls fans across the country are anxiously awaiting the Season 6 premiere Sunday, February 12 on HBO with a mix of excitement and disappointment. That's because it's the beginning of the end for the story of four young New York, well, girls. And the cast is equally as devastated. 

In the Inside the Actors Studio clip above, Lena Dunham, the show's creator, director, and star describes finishing the series as "the worst thing ever," even saying it was "sadder than any break up." Allison Williams gets teary eyed recalling the final moment she had a scene in character with Lena's Hannah. And Zosia Mamet exclaims that she's going to start crying. Needless to say, no one wants to say goodbye. So why is the series ending now? Well, leave it to James Lipton to find out.

When asked, Lena Dunham provided an answer that we think will help fans say farewell a little easier. Dunham explained, "Jenny, Judd, and I always talked about wanting the series to have a really clear end. At a certain point, girls become women. That's not the story we set out to tell. We set out to tell the story of this transitional time." And with a laugh, the star added, "At a certain point it would go from a transitional time to true deep dysfunction if we kept them from maturing anymore." 

We suppose girls do grow up...oh, how we'll miss that dysfunction, though.
