It's been a fun ride but every good thing must come to an end.

Girls just wanted to have fun and after five glorious seasons, Lena Dunham's critically-acclaimed series is coming to an end. 

HBO confirmed the Golden Globe-winning comedy would conclude in 2017 after completing its sixth season, according to Variety.com.

"Lena Dunham and her brilliant collaborators, including Judd Apatow and Jenni Konner, have given HBO a signature series of rare wit and intelligence," HBO president of Programming Michael Lombardo said.

Actress Lena Dunham started working on the show when she was 23.

As she enters her 30s, Dunham told media it feels like the natural time to wrap the show up.

""I can't imagine a more fulfilling creative experience than Girls," she said.

"I conceived of Girls when I was 23 and now I'm nearly 30 — the show has quite perfectly spanned my 20s, the period of time that it's about — and so it feels like the right time to wrap our story up."

But, she warns, "in the Girls universe, nothing ever ends too neatly".

Lombarod called Dunham and her co-stars "exceptional talents".

"I can't wait to see what Lena, Jenni and Judd have in store for the final seasons of this unique show, and look forward to working with them on future projects."
