Issa Rae’s Insecure will return to HBO for a fifth and final season, the network has announced. The popular Emmy-nominated series aired its fourth season in 2020; a premiere date for its last season has yet to be revealed.
“Issa has turned insecurity into an iconic form of comedy,” HBO executive vice president Amy Gravitt said in a press release. “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.”
Rae partnered with Atlantic Records to launch her own record label in October 2019. That same month, it was announced that she was working on a new comedy series for HBO Max called Rap Sh*t, following a female rap group from South Florida. She and Jordan Peele are also co-producing a forthcoming movie titled Sinkhole.
