Judd Apatow Teases ‘Girls’ Final Season & Future: ‘It Would Be A Great Movie’

With the news that “Girls” will end on HBO after its sixth season, exec producer Judd Apatow says plans for the show’s final moments have been made.

“We just started kicking it around. There are ideas, but they could go out the window once we start typing,” Apatow told reporters Sunday at the Television Critics Association press tour in Pasadena, Calif. “But there is an idea [Lena Dunham] has wanted to do for a few years.”

Beyond the series’ finale, Dunham has teased — possibly in jest — a “Girls” movie that could come in the very far future. Last year, she told Variety, “I have fantasies of us all coming back and making a movie when we’re 40. I think we’d want to wait long enough for something to have really gone down.”

Asked about that possibility, Apatow said today: “I think the show would work well as a movie. I don’t think that’s something [Dunham] wants to do immediately, but it would be a great movie. It feels like they’ve all been movies.”

Before it was announced that “Girls” would end after Season 6, Dunham spoke to Variety last year about the series’ potentially ending. She said, “We spent a lot of time talking about where these girls will end up. We definitely have a distinct idea of where we want to see them. I even sometimes focus on this final image that I see, but between now and then, anything can happen.”

At TCA, Apatow also talked about the chances for a “Freaks and Geeks” revival, saying that while nothing is in the works, “anything can happen.”
