When ‘Insecure’ returns for its fifth season, it’ll be a bittersweet outing for fans.
For, it’s been announced that the incoming instalment of the HBO hit will be its last.
Full story below…
Created and top-billed by Issa Rae, the show – which follows friends Issa and Molly (played by Yvonne Orji) – has proven a seismic cultural hit since its debut.
With the fifth season’s script complete, production will commence shortly. The final run of ‘Insecure’ – which is co produced by Prentice Penny – is scheduled to premiere on screens later this year
Speaking about its curtain call, Rae said in a statement:
“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. 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.”
Amy Gravitt, executive vice president of HBO Programming, added:
“Issa has turned insecurity into an iconic form of comedy. 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.”
Few shows have gripped audiences with the relatability, charm, and humor in the way ‘Insecure’ managed.
Like most, we’ll be extremely sad to see it go. But we’re confident all involved will ensure it goes out with as much of a resonating bang as it made while on-air.
