“It’s 2 am on Friday morning and we just finished shooting Girls. Forever.” Those words came from the hit HBO series’ creator and star Lena Dunham as the show wrapped its final episode Thursday. Dunham, fellow star Allison Williams and director Jenni Konner took to Instagram to document their thoughts as Girls completed shooting its sixth and final season.

In a goodbye message on Instagram, Dunhan thanks fans who “have blown our minds.” She goes on to say: “You have made a big scary world seem small and intimate and I see blessings and safe havens everywhere because of the way you’ve normalized these experiences, the moments of being female that feel dark and unruly, that hurt like a gash. You’ve made me believe there was a place for the strange girls and the ones who don’t know how to love quite yet. And I know you’ll give the same warm reception to all the radical & essential female voices coming to TV in the near future.”

Dunham announced in January that the sixth season would be the show’s last.
