No. of Seasons: 5
Insecure star and co-creator Issa Rae announced last January that the upcoming fifth season of the comedy-drama series will be its last. In a statement, Rae revealed that she and fellow executive producer Prentice Penny had always envisioned Insecure as a five-season series. “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,” Rae told Deadline. “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.”
Co-created by Larry Wilmore and partially based on Rae’s acclaimed web series Awkward Black Girl, Insecure follows the awkward experiences and racy tribulations of a modern-day African-American woman named Issa Dee (Rae). Aside from Rae, the series also stars Jay Ellis, Yvonne Orji, Alexander Hodge, and Kendrick Sampson.
