HBO’s ‘Insecure’ will end after its upcoming fifth season

After years of heartbreak, friendship, mirror rapping and, of course, awkwardness, “Insecure” will be coming to an end after the next season.

Issa Rae, the creator of the popular show, made the announcement on Wednesday on Twitter, ahead of filming for the fifth season.

“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!” she said.

But this might not be the end of Rae on HBO. In a statement, Amy Gravitt, executive vice president of HBO Programming, hinted at possible future projects with Rae.

“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,” Gravitt said.

(CNN and HBO share parent company WarnerMedia.)

“Insecure” follows the (mis)adventures of Issa Dee and her friend Molly as they navigate life and love in their late 20s and early 30s while living in Los Angeles.

The show, which won an Emmy at last year’s awards, was renewed in May for a fifth season. Table reads for the season began in September, according to Rae’s social media.

Though a release date for the final season has yet to be announced, Rae told CNN in June that fans can expect the season “to be different in a great way.”

“I think different in a way that the audience will expect and won’t expect,” Rae said. “It’s definitely going to showcase some different sides to our characters. We’re trying something new next season that I’m excited about.”

No further details were divulged, so fans will just have to tune in to find out.

After a first season that never quite got off the ground creatively, “Batwoman” announced that original star Ruby Rose would be leaving but that the series would hang around without her. The contortions necessary to arrange that baton (or Batarang) pass mostly fizzle in the opening episodes, fueling a sense that this CW drama might…

Sea shanties are your soundtrack of 2021. Seriously

It’s folly to examine why some things go viral on the internet, and by doing so one risks discounting the beauty of the simplest answer: They just do. Nothing makes sense. Roll with it. Or at least, that’s the easiest thing to tell yourself when “The Wellerman,” a 19th Century whaling song, has been knocking…

‘MLK/FBI’ probes ‘the darkest part’ of the bureau’s history

The government-sanctioned harassment of Martin Luther King Jr. provides the chilling spine of “MLK/FBI,” a documentary timed to the annual holiday for the civil rights icon. Director Sam Pollard’s film also raises an interesting question — namely, what historians and journalists owe King’s legacy in terms of releasing material amassed specifically in an effort to…
