Zosia Mamet, Jemima Kirke, producer Lena Dunham and Allison Williams attend the HBO with the Cinema Society host the New York premiere of HBO's 'Girls' at the School of Visual Arts Theater on April 4, 2012 in New York City.

"Girls" showrunners Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner said they have not ruled out the possibility of making a movie adaptation of the series. The series' stars also revealed their respective plans after the conclusion of the series.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Dunham and Konner both said they would want to revisit the "Girls" characters if given the chance. However, both also acknowledged that any project involving the series does not necessarily need to happen now.

"We feel like no one necessarily needs to hear from us right now, but if someone wants to do the [Girls] movie, we'll do it," Konner said.

"Oh, we're doing the movie. I'd just want to leave enough space so that we are finding them in a super different place than we left them," Dunham said.

Elsewhere, Dunham's co-stars Zosia Mamet, Jemima Kirke, Allison Williams and Adam Driver all said they will continue their acting career after "Girls." Mamet is set to play Patti Smith in "Mapplethorpe" and "Under the Silver Lake" with Andrew Garfield and Topher Grace. Kirke is set to appear in upcoming drama "Untogether" while Williams said she wants to continue doing projects similar to "Girls" in the future. As for Driver, the actor is set to appear in four films namely "Logan Lucky," "Tough as They Come", "Annette" and "The Man Who Killed Don Quixote" which will be directed by Sylvester Stallone, E! Online reported.  

Dunham, on the other hand, reiterated that she will continue writing and pursue filmmaking. She will put out a novella and short stories called "Best and Always" in the beginning of 2018.

"Girls" is a comedy-drama following the lives of four young women living in New York City. The series premiered on HBO in 2012. The series concluded on the tenth episode of its sixth season titled, "Latching." Watch the clip below to see what Dunham has to say about the ending:
