“We’re super grateful,” Dunham told EW during an interview with her and co-executive producer Jenni Konner. Not alone. To my collaborators — you are my family. “I think if we were capable — as two Jewish women — of experiencing pure, unmitigated joy, that’s how we would feel right now.” (Read that whole interview about this season and the finale here, and our recap of the final episode here.)
Check out Dunham’s Instagram below. This final season, especially, has been beloved by viewers. “You have made me feel whole again. Give any woman 6 years to create uninterrupted and she will soar. We demand opportunity.”
Dunham created Girls in 2012, and the half-hour series aired for six seasons, earning both critical acclaim and awards attention — it won two Golden Globes in 2013, including the trophy for Best Television Series—Comedy or Musical and has two Emmys to its name. All kinds of women. “Thank you,” she wrote in a handwritten farewell letter. Women’s stories deserve to be told. Lena Dunham celebrated the end of Girls by posting a heartfelt note to Instagram on Monday, the day after her HBO show’s series finale aired.
