Issa Rae has confirmed that Insecure season 5 will be the show’s last.

The actress and comedian, who created the beloved HBO comedy-drama, made the announcement on Twitter.

Alongside the announcement, Issa wrote: ‘Very excited to film our fifth and final season!

‘We couldn’t have told a complete story without the tremendous support of our audience and the faith of @HBO. See y’all soon! #InsecureHBO’

The semi-autobiographical tale, initially based on series Awkward Black Girl, followed Issa and pal Molly (Yvonne Orji) as they navigated life and love as Black women in Los Angeles.

The tale has earned the cast and crew a string of awards, as well as high praise for its frank discussion on the Black experience.

‘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 [Penny, executive producer], Melina [Matsoukas, executive producer] , 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 will air later this year.
