HBO drama Girls is nearing the end of filming its fifth season, but it might – and we stress M I G H T – also be nearing its end-date.
Lena Dunham (do we really have to explain her Girls involvement at this point?) sent out this somewhat cryptic tweet, kickstarting wild speculation:
Done playing Hannah for the fifth season of Girls. 52 episodes down and I feel like we’re starting to look alike.

- She’s having a laugh, because OF COURSE SHE AND HANNAH LOOK ALIKE HAHAHAHAHA.
- Hannah will die in some freak-with-a-feminist-twist New York accident and Girls will continue on without her.
- Girls is done. For good.
TBH we’re leaning towards #3.
Girls has had a good run – there are the eight awards and further 28 nominations, plus it’s responsible for generating more conversations about modern-day feminism than any other TV show in history – but maybe it’s time to quit while they’re ahead.
Besides, Dunham has soon-to-be-launched newsletter Lenny to focus on. (Which, FYI, will include a number of celebs writing for it, including absolute rig Emily Ratajkowski.)
stalking keeping a close eye on Lena’s Twitter feed for further clarification, her followers appear to be as confused as us. So that’s something.
