"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."
