Lena Dunahm Says the 'Girls' Finale is More Like an Epilogue

We’re just a couple hours away from the series finale of Girls.

Showrunner and actress Lena Dunham recently opened up about what to expect in the final episode.

“We were obsessed with our finale and we talked a lot about other shows that we thought did it right, but we actually sort of purposely didn’t model ours on anyone else’s,” Lena told Rolling Stone. “The ninth episode of the season is sort of the more traditional finale, and then the 10th is almost like a short-film epilogue. We did it a little bit of a different way.”

She added, “The show’s never been about that traditional connection, where it’s four best friends who just can’t get enough of each other. So to do a traditional everybody-gets-their-happy-ending finale didn’t feel right. At the same time, we wanted people to have the satisfaction of closure. I think we found kind of a creative way to do that. We’ll see if other people feel the same way.”

Girls airs TONIGHT, April 16 @ 10PM on HBO.

Lena Dunham Knew Hannah's Fate on 'Girls' Since Season 2

SPOILER ALERT! DO NOT CONTINUE IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENED!

In the penultimate episode of Girls, Hannah (Lena Dunham) decided to pack up her stuff and move out of Brooklyn for good.

She took a job teaching and relocated upstate where she could raise her baby.

While some fans may be surprised by the revelation, Lena recently revealed that she’s known that ending for years.

“From season two, I remember saying to Jenni [Konner] and Judd [Apatow], ‘I think Hannah ends up with a baby upstate,’” Lena told Vulture.

“Her destiny is to find herself through caring for someone else because I almost feel like she needs that in order to move to the next step in her life,” Lena continued. “She needs that urgency. After that, we debated about how it would happen. We debated who the father would be, whether he would be involved, etc. But the idea that Hannah would have this pregnancy and make this unexpected choice to keep it always felt really right to us.”

Lena Dunham Isn't Ruling Out the Idea of a 'Girls' Movie

Lena Dunham is giving Girls fans a little hope of seeing these characters again in the future.

With only two episodes of the HBO show left, the 30-year-old actress and creator isn’t ruling out the idea of movie.

“We’ve always said we would never push aside the idea of doing a sequel, or a movie,” Lena told The Guardian. “We are not sick of our jobs. We understand when it’s time to hold ’em and when it’s time to fold ’em, but returning to these characters would be an amazing thing. Once the appropriate length of time had passed, we would be all in.”

She added, “I’ll have to examine how long they waited before that Sex and the City movie. I think it was only a couple of years. We will see if people miss us the same way.”

Pictured: Lena walks her dog on Saturday (April 8) in Los Angeles.
