HBO original series Girls has to-date seen four hugely successful seasons written and directed by creator and star of the show Lena Dunham, and since its 2012 premiere Dunham has done well to make a big name for herself, landing a book deal along multiple other projects.

Speaking in a recent radio interview to Elvis Duran on the Morning Show, Dunham spoke about the show's sixth season and suggested it would be the final outing for Girls.

"Never say never, but that is the way that we're thinking about it right now, and we're starting to think about sort of how to wrap up the storylines of these particular young women," she explained. "It's really exciting. I started working on this show when I was 23. 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."

Though discussions between Dunham and HBO continue regarding the extension of the series after season 5, Dunham has made her intentions clear.

She added: "I think America has a tendency to push shows past their due dates. I like the British model: In-and-out."

But despite that, she wouldn't mind revisiting the characters for a feature film reunion in a decade.

"I have fantasies of us all coming back when we're 40, [though] we'd want to wait long enough for something to have really gone down."

Girls season 5 is expected to air on HBO in the US in January 2016.
