The show has just completed filming its fifth season which will air in January and the series has not yet been commissioned for a sixth instalment.

However, the series is still massively popular and another season is a given.  So when season six does happen it will focus on wrapping up the ongoing storylines of the various characters.

“Never say never, but that is the way that we’re thinking about it right now, and we’re starting to think about sort of how to wrap up the storylines of these particular young women,” Dunham told US station Z100's Elvis Duran and the Morning Show.

“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.”

She has previously spoken about how she prefers the British model of short series rather than the US networks' tendency to allow series to run and run.

The show premiered in April 2012 and follows the lives of a group of twenty-somethings living in New York.  It has made stars of Dunham and co-stars Allison Williams, Zosia Mamet and Adam Driver.
