Vice President of HBO Programming, Amy Gavitt, announced that the fifth season of the Emmy winning comedy series Insecure, will be its last.
Golden Globe and NAACP Image Award nominee Issa Rae heads an ensemble cast in a new season that will continue to follow our favorite characters as they evaluate their relationships, both new and old, in an effort to figure out who and what comes with them in this next phase of their lives.
“Issa has turned insecurity into an iconic form of comedy,” said Gravitt. “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.”
Season four received high praises from critics and fans alike. Hollywood Reporter praised the season as “funny as ever,” IndieWire hailed the series as “quietly groundbreaking” and Decider highlighted the season as “nimble and introspective.”
The series, created by Issa Rae and Larry Wilmore, also features series regulars: Yvonne Orji, Jay Ellis, Natasha Rothwell, Amanda Seales and Alexander Hodge. Rae also serves as Executive Producer – talk about double-duty.
Season five of Insecure will be available to stream on HBO Max later this year.
