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.
