After four seasons of awkward conversations, bomb mirror raps, and eargasmic soundtracks, we're saying goodbye to Insecure. On 13th Jan., Amy Gravitt, executive vice president of HBO programming, announced the Emmy-nominated comedy's upcoming fifth season will be its final run.
"Issa has turned insecurity into an iconic form of comedy," Gravitt said in a statement on Wednesday. "The show is as incisive as it is heartfelt, and it has resonated strongly with its audience because of the deeply personal work that Issa, Prentice, Melina, the cast and the writers have put into it. This talented team has conceived a brilliant final season for Insecure and we look forward to having many more stories to tell with this singular group of collaborators."
The series had been renewed for a fifth season back in May 2020, just as season four just began. Production on season five began on 17th Sept., when Rae revealed with a post on Instagram that she was sitting down for the first table read via video chat. Season five is slated to debut later this year.
"Prentice and I are so grateful that HBO believed in our show from the beginning and kept faith in us to see our vision through the end," Rae told Deadline regarding the cancellation. "We always planned to tell this story through five seasons, but we couldn't have made it this far without the tremendous support of our audience. I feel blessed beyond measure to bring our characters' stories to an end, on-screen at least."
