Dunham and Girls executive producer Jenni Konner have both spoken to HBO about doing six seasons of the series, but it’s unclear whether it will extend beyond that. “I think America has a tendency to push shows past their due dates,” Dunham told Variety. “I like the British model–in and out.”
Better to quit on top than to just carry on for the sake of it, say like Fox show Bones or something.
