‘Insecure’ to end with season 5

HBO has announced that Insecure will wrap up with the upcoming fifth season. The critically-acclaimed comedy was renewed last year, in May.

Issa Rae, Insecure‘s lead and co-creator, spoke to Deadline and revealed that it was always her and Prentice Penny‘s (co-creator) intention to end at this mark. “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,” she said. “I feel blessed beyond measure to bring our characters’ stories to an end, on-screen at least.”

“Issa has turned insecurity into an iconic form of comedy,” said Amy Gravitt, executive vice president of HBO Programming. “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 fifth (and final season) featuring Rae’s co-stars Yvonne Orji, Jay Ellis, Natasha Rothwell, and Amanda Seales is set to go into production later this month, and, according to HBO, will air later this year.
