The rumors are true, Lena Dunham has confirmed that the sixth season of “Girls” will be its last.

HBO formally announced the news that the show has been renewed for a sixth and final season during the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour on Thursday. Fans were already prepared for the news, as the news was leaked to E! News earlier this week and Dunham herself had previously alluded to the possibility that the Emmy-winning show may end in previous interviews.

In a radio interview with Elvis Duran in September, Dunham stated, “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.”

In a statement to EW, Dunham further explained her desire not to drag the show out through too many seasons. “It’s always been important to us that we know and understand when it’s time to wrap it up. It is about a very specific time in life and we don’t want to push past that or overextend it. We’re going to feel it out.”

In the official press release announcing the series’ end, HBO president Michael Lombardo, praised Dunham and the show creators on the work they’ve done over the last few years, saying they gave HBO a “signature series of rare wit and intelligence. They are exceptional talents, and I can’t wait to see what Lena, Jenni and Judd have in store for the final seasons of this unique show, and look forward to working with them on future projects.”

Distraught fans should take heart in knowing that though the show’s end is in sight, the final season will not premiere until 2017. In the meantime, season 5 premieres on HBO February 21st so there are still two full seasons of “Girls” on the horizon.
