One year earlier, the final episode of the American comedy-drama television series Girls aired on April 16, 2017.

“We were always conscious, especially because the show has been at times such a lightning rod, of overstaying our welcome,” the show’s creator Lena Dunham said about ending the HBO series after its sixth season.

“We’ve been very blessed to have the experience of people continuing to engage in the show in a really kind of rabid way after four — heading into five — years. We wanted to make sure we kept the momentum alive and didn’t allow it to soften over time,” she added at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2016.

Allison Williams, Jemima Kirke, Zosia Mamet, Adam Driver, and Alex Karpovsky starred as the friends of the main character Hannah Helene Horvath (Lena Dunham).

Filmed between April and August 2011, the first season of Girls premiered on HBO on April 15, 2012. Born on April 13, 1988, in New Canaan, Connecticut, Allison Williams turned 24 on April 13, 2012, just two days before the season premiere.

If they’d continued for several more seasons, “it wouldn’t be about what it was originally about,” Dunham said about her age at the time. Born on May 13, 1986, in New York, she was 25 when the first episode aired and was 30 when the final episode aired in 2017.

“Also, it is about this really incredibly specific period in these women’s lives. Just on a personal level, I was 23 when I wrote the pilot; I’m gonna be 30 as we shoot the sixth season. And it just felt as though, if we were to continue on, it wouldn’t be about what it was originally about. It would be the equivalent of moving them to California, only California is them getting married and having kids and stuff like that. It just feels like at this point, it makes sense for us to wrap their stories up.”

Born on February 2, 1988, in Randolph, Vermont, Zosia Mamet celebrated her 24th birth on February 2, 2012.

3 years older, Jemima Kirke was born on April 26, 1985, in London, United Kingdom, and turned 27 on April 26, 2012.

To promote the second season of the black comedy-drama streaming television series from Netflix, the then 29-year-old American actress, comedian, and singer rocked a menswear-inspired plaid suit from Gabriela Hearst’s Fall 2018 collection with her trademark brunette tresses.

She completed her ensemble with black suede Paul Andrew ‘Kimura’ pumps that are intricately shaped for a chic look. A low-cut, sculpted topline adds an art-deco feel to these classic suede shoes.
