lena dunham created and starred on "Girls" before its cancellation on HBO last April. The actress and writer revealed that she's in the middle of planning her next show with Jenni Konner, the former showrunner of "Girls."

Lena Dunham declared via People that she and Konner are back and working on a new TV show. The actor, writer, and director, who won a Golden Globe for her performance on “Girls,” did not want to reveal too much about the said project, though.

“We can’t say anything right now except that you’ll definitely see some more awkward situations and people showing their darker selves,” Lena Dunham, who is no stranger to controversy, told the news outlet.

What ‘Girls’ was about

"Girls" followed four young women based in New York City who struggled with navigating life as adults. The show premiered in 2011 to positive reviews from critics initially for its realistic take on twenty-something women.

Lena Dunham led the cast as Hannah Horvath, a writer who was cut-off by her parents so she can learn independence. Joining her were Allison Williams (Marnie), Jemima Kirke (Jessa), Zosia Mamet (Shoshanna), Adam Driver (Adam) and Alex Karpovsky (Ray).

Aside from multiple Golden Globes and Emmy nominations, the show also received a Peabody Award in 2013. Yet the series also had its fair share of criticism because the show depicted unlikeable and self-entitled characters as the seasons progressed.

Lenny Letter and ‘Tokyo Project’

Lena Dunham and Konner are also working on a documentary series that will be aired on HBO. It will be about Lenny Letter, the feminist website that both accomplished women created which is celebrating its second year anniversary this September.

The actress also has a TV movie debuting in October which will run on HBO. "Tokyo Project" will feature recent Emmy Best Actress winner Elisabeth Moss ("The Handmaid's Tale") and Ebon Moss-Bachrach ("Girls") who find love while in another country.

"On a business trip to Tokyo, Sebastian explores the city with a mysterious woman he keeps running into wherever he goes,” the synopsis to "Tokyo Project" reads, as per the press release. It will be about discovery and soul-searching. The film is said to have a similar vibe as the 2003 critically-acclaimed film "Lost in Translation," which starred Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson.

"Tokyo Project" will air on the cable network on Saturday, Oct.
