The sixth season of Girls will be its last

After rumors surfaced earlier this week that Girls was ending, HBO confirmed Wednesday that the sixth season of the comedy, helmed by Lena Dunham and Judd Apatow, would indeed be its last.

"I conceived of Girls when I was 23 and now I'm nearly 30," Dunham said in a statement. "[T]he 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."

Fans can look forward to what will surely be a dramatic final season, because as Dunham says, "in the Girls universe, nothing ever ends too neatly."

Season 5 of Girls premieres Feb. 21 on HBO.
