Insecure returns to HBO for the conclusion of its fifth season. Consequently, viewers must enjoy this season’s new offerings while they can.
Issa Rae has been rewarded with many awards and accolades for her role as Issa Dee on the comedy drama she co-created. The actress announced in the summer of 2014 that Season 5 would be renamed “Season Byeve.”
The fifth season of Insecure includes 10 episodes. The first episode aired Sunday October 24 , and the final episode is scheduled to air on the day after Christmas.
What is the reason for Insecure ending?
On the 13th of January 2021 Rae made it clear via Twitter on Twitter that her coming fifth season of Insecure will be the final season. In her statement, the actress suggested that the decision to close the show at this point was the intention right from the very beginning.
In her tweet, she wrote: “Very excited to film the fifth and final season of our show we could not have told an entire story without the overwhelming enthusiasm of our viewers and the trust that is the @HBO. Come back soon!”
Rae also shared the Deadline Hollywood article where she explained more in depth the reason why Season 5 was set to be the final season for the show. She wrote: “We always planned to present this story over 5 seasons. We could not have made it to this point without the incredible backing of our fans.
“I feel blessed beyond measure to bring our characters’ stories to an end, on-screen at least,” she declared.
Rae acknowledged HBO for sticking by her and allowing them present the complete narrative in The Insecure from beginning to end. “Prentice [Penny] 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,” she told the media.
The Insecure writers and the cast behind the show have been calling Season 5 as “Season Byeve” on social media with the hashtag at any occasion they discuss the show through social media. Rae herself might have initiated this term after she posted a video of her during the initial day of filming in January.
Insecure premiered on September of 2016 and went through a series of nominations for awards, and has even received an Primetime Emmy in 2020.
The semi-autobiographical series was created by Rae and comedian Larry Wilmore. It was based in part and developed from Rae’s acclaimed web-based show The Awkward Black Girl which aired on YouTube. The short-form show are still accessible to view on Rae’s YouTube channel Issa Rae Presents, now.
